HOW I GOT MY BODY BACK AFTER HAVING A BABY

Video taken from the channel: Carly Cristman


I ‘Got My Body Back’ After Birth, but It Was Awful Sleep deprivation is a part of new parenthood, but calorie deprivation shouldn’t be. It’s time we confront the expectation to “bounce back.”. My body has done some amazing things. When I was 15, it healed from an 8-hour operation.

I had severe scoliosis, and the lumbar region of my back needed to be fused. In my 20s, it supported me through numerous races. I’ve run more marathons, half marathons, and 5 and 10Ks than I can count. And in my 30s, my body carried two children. I ‘got my body back’ after having a baby, and it was awful.

It was awful! It took 12 weeks just for me to regain control of my bladder and start to re-introduce an exercise routine into my life. I’m still working off the last 12 pounds and my baby is 5 months old now.” — Melinda, 31. 13. How I Got My Body Back After Baby #2.

I constantly get asked how I snapped back into shape within two weeks after giving birth to my second baby. For starters, it was not easy by ANY means. I credit staying active throughout my entire pregnancy for allowing me to bounce back so easily. People can say that it’s genes, age, how many babies I.

We can experience postpartum depression, fear, indescribable exhaustion and anxiety as our hormones shift and change during and after pregnancy. It’s during these very dark days post-pregnancy that we are told to “get our bodies back now ”—not focus on our babies, on motherhood, on our need to heal and rest and bond. It’s about time I wrote a post on the topic of Body After Baby! If you search “body after baby” you’ll find thousands of articles and images. So, it’s not exactly a ground breaking topic, but if something I share helps another mommy, then my job is done!

How I Got My Body Back. 1. Prenatal Fitness. Labor itself was an experience, to say the least. I had awful back spasms and pains for two weeks prior to giving birth. I had to be induced because I missed my due date.

Continued 4. Cup Size. A lot of women expect the ir breasts to get bigger before and after birth, especially if they continue breastfeeding.But just remember: what goes up “After you give birth. I started taking birth control when I was 16.

I had debilitating period cramps (so bad that, one time, my vision went black while I was showering and I hit my head on the tile), and hormonal.

  • down voted for the click bait-y title and photo.,You look quite tall. To petite women, especially with a short torso, expect to look NOTHING LIKE THIS. i’m 9 months postpartum, about 4 lbs away from my goal weight and my stomach is no where near how it looked pre pregnancy. I worked out for two years consistently before conceiving, and worked out throughout my pregnancy. I’ve been under 100lbs my entire life. Everyone heals differently.

    you look awesome, i wish i could flaunt my stomach that way but you also come off as incredibly tired (your face doesn’t look tired, just your demeanor)I remember those days. I can’t knock your hustle but just be mindful of the videos you put out at this time. you seem a little down which is 100% okay, but it may lead to inauthentic videos. My advice is to stay honest. There is absolutely nothing wrong with using sponsorships, but try to be less click bait-y about it.
    And last but not least, this is a difficult transition but it comes with immense depth and joy. ENJOY life with your newborn! it will be over before you know it. A married mom in her late 20’s.

  • Yes! Putting on clothes that make you feel pretty is HUGE! That plus once a week I would set aside time to make sure I got to blow dry my hair after my shower to help me feel more put together and just happier!

  • your body looks amazing you are lucky and also u have motivation im so the opposite injust had my baby gurl 7 months ago and im still 180 pounds i was 172 before i had her but i always wanted to lose weight even before i had her but now i am going to try my hardest because im so unhappy with myself:( thanks

  • I want to be a size 2 one montj after giving birth. i would rather be a skinny mom than a chubby mom when I have kids. Skinny is beautiful. I hope to be a size 2 by Christmas.

  • I’m 4 weeks postpartum after a c section. I gained 55 pounds with this lil one ( not lil at all 9.2 lbs at birth) I was 173 when I gave birth now 148! The last week haven’t lost anything and I am breastfeeding. I was 118 before pregnancy and HOPE I get to at least 125 before summer. I feel down about my body but I know once I have the ok to work out I hopefully see results 25 down 30 more to go!!

  • thanks for sharing Carly!! I’m only at 4 weeks postpartum, along with a toddler… but I see the light at the end of the tunnel:)

  • Hahaha yes. I understand the stir crazy! I walked my dogs the night I got home from the hospital! I needed to move. My poor husband was so scared to be alone with her.

  • Did you have stitches after birth? My good friend just popped and she has stitches, and I’m due next month and want to get to exercising ASAP, but don’t see myself being comfortable sweating all effed up between the legs.

  • Having good support is very important to be able to get your rest and self care! Very good tips. I wish I could have known all this back when I had my kids.

  • What a beautiful picture to see her feeding her little girls with her breast. Beautiful woman. It’s so hard to get it back ur belly when u are alone without help. Congratulations.

  • my baby turned 1yr last week. I am back to my original weight but can’t get rid of my tummy fats. what shall I do to achieve a flat tummy? thanks

  • What blows my mind is that you’re still working, despite having a lil newborn days that you feel inadequate you need to remind yourself that you are a hard-working, wonderful woman who is doing her best!

  • Great video, Carly! I’m about to have twins and excited to get my body back and feel like myself again! Not sure if my skin will ever look the same, but that’s ok…like you said, growing humans is awesome ��

  • Carly, you look awesome. I had a baby 9 months ago. And I had my pre-pregnancy body back 7 days after. +1kg. No strech marks. I didn’t changed anything. I eat the same things as before and duering pregnancy. Thanks body, I love you.

  • I got my period but still exclusively breastfeeding �� just before baby hits 6 months… is that something to be concerned about? Scared of losing my milk

  • Not sure how this is relevant? I understand people want to look a certain way, but why do we need to “get back to” our old bodies? I think this is unhealthy and unnecessary. Emphasizing “I had a baby, what did you do?” is a shitty way of approaching anything. Many women cannot have babies and many women can, I do not see how this is a measuring stick for anything. We wonder why we struggle with body images when we ourselves are putting out these weird concepts. Generations of mothers have been doing this and yet social media is now telling us that our focus shouldn’t be family and happiness, but getting our bodies back. Super disappointed in this.

  • Everyone is so different. I was back into my “old” clothes within 10 days, and then looked malnourished bunthe time my boys were 30 lbs 9 months olds! I was a cream maker! My instincts were to nurse my kids, even when it made me unhealthy. I had to learn that a healthy mom really meant happy family.

  • i have been breastfeeding for the oast 6 n a half months n i cannot lose weight i eat so much im hugry all the time n ive g ained mire weight from when i gave birth! i worked out for abt 2 weeks n wasn’t producing milk like i was before i started working out so i stopped:( so frustrating i wish i would lose weight like you did!

  • sorry but i can’t agree when u r saying u never be the same as u were before your pregnancy, is it excuse? i had a baby 5 month ago, after 2 month i was way skinnier than before and i have not done anything, so ppl can’t even imagine that i gave birth naturaly 4.100 kg baby girl, so please ladies don’t say that u can not be same as u were before babies

  • I totally feel you. My baby is six weeks and my body just feels squishy and not itself. I’m sure i look “fine” but i don’t feel myself.

  • Good tips. TFS. I hate to say it but fabletics sucks lol. I’m shocked you’re doing this spons bc you like quality items. I tried them four years ago and all but two items (tried several months worth) I got ripped. I gave them a try for the first time since then just this month and ughhh. It’s still just awwwwful.

  • I love your videos Carly! Really good information for when I do have a baby:) However, the music & the white noise is too loud. I think it’d be good to get a mic so we can hear you better! Looking forward to your next video! <3

  • Yay such a great video. I’m 18 and not even close to having a baby but to be honest I can not wait for it!! I have 3 siblings and I want at least 3 children myself! How many children do you and Cody want? xx from Germany

  • I loved this! I’m 5 weeks post baby(so crazy to say that) doesn’t feel that long lol but yes relaxing and sleeping when you can is key to keeping your sanity ❤️

  • I love how this normalizes talking about menstruation and how varied symptoms can be, more women should feel comfortable discussing something that happens to all of us! ❤❤❤

  • Well me, i barely ate during pregnancy and what i did ate was very healthy cuz everything would get me nauseous and give me heartburn and still gained 39 lbs (my baby is 7 months and im still breastfeeding maybe like once or twice a day, cuz she eats other stuff now) i lost bit of the weight right after giving birth but then ( still eating healthy and going for power walks while carrying my baby on a baby carrier) i started to gain weight again…no it seems im not gaining any more, but im not losing either…������ Dunno what to do anymore… You are so lucky!!! Or im so unlucky, cuz every other mother i know lost weight with the breastfeeding, i have had blood work done, and my prolactin its like really really high, they say that, that might be the reason, and i have hypothyroidism also… this is really frustrating…��☹️��

  • No period I’m exclusively breastfeeding my daughter is 5 months no period. Yes risk taker a bit I still have sex with my husband no birth control methods

  • I dont think its good to not get your period, we are naturally supposed to for a reason so just let it flow, and embrace natural body as intended!

  • After My First Born I went back to my same weight no problem. Didnt even work out! Buuut….Now I had my second baby and lost alot of weight but only in my a**, thighs and face!! WTF?? lol Why doesnt it leave the mid area?!?!!

  • For anyone feeling discouraged, be easy on yourself! Carly has some great tips but remember everyone is different. I had 3 children, one I ate horribly and didn’t exercise, one I ate super well and exercised well, and the other was somewhere in between, but with all 3 of my pregnancies I gained between 55-65 lbs. It’s just what my body does! I also have a really hard time with recovery. With all 3 within the first 6 weeks it was hard for me to even walk through a grocery store. My fastest recovery was the baby where I focused on being super healthy and it took me six months to get back to pre baby weight and size and it was a TON of work! Just remember to love yourself and focus more on how your body feels than how it looks.

  • Exclusively breast feeding. Got my period 3 month after baby. I decided not to use birth control, but hubby and I still want to be careful so we use condoms. One time it broke so I decided to take the morning after pill. I got a short 3 day period the next day, but now I’m 6 months out and I haven’t had another one since.

  • whenever I see a video from a youtube that’s been mia for a while I think, “please don’t be a sponsored video, please don’t be a sponsored video.” But, then it was. I was really hoping for a sit down, life update. Let us know how you’ve been.

  • I see many videos like that, but my question is….. who cleans your house, prepares food, goes to work, to the supermarket and takes care of your children? I wake up at 5 am every day my daughter is enrolled in a nursery school 8 to 12 times a week, I work, I go to the supermarket, I clean my house, I prepare the food and I take my daughter for a walk every afternoon. I’m going to sleep at 10pm and I’m dead tired! My husband works from 6am to 5pm and we do not have our parents to help us with anything. Of course if I do not work, if I have a nanny and also a maid lady, I would be in a magazine like super mom, post pregnancy!
    Sorry for the mistakes English is not my language.

  • I really appreciate this video. We just had our first child. He’ll be 14 months on the 19th and still no period. I still pump and breastfeed ����‍♀️

  • I’m still 15 kilos from my before weight and my girl is almost 6 months. I wasn’t able to work out before 4 month after birth due to a rough birth ending with an emergency c-saction. It is only two months since I was able to walk with the baby carrier more than 2 kilometres. Just got back in the gym. I was able to breastfeed for the first 3 months she wouldn’t not breastfeed more, and I didn’t lose anything due to breastfeeding.

  • I’m 4 months pp EBF and just started my period two days ago. It’s seriously a crime scene. I went to the store to get adult diapers because I’m also on a blood thinner so imagine that scene in The Shining w all the blood. That’s me. The store was closed btw. They closed early due to this covid-19 quarantine.

  • I didn’t even show when I was 9 weeks, you showed a lot. I show a little now that I’m 17 weeks. I’m afraid of having a big tummy so this is good for me lol baby is perfectly healthy MA.

  • But at what ages did you give birth? The fear of the difficulty of recovering from pregnancy at ages 32-35 as compared to someone in their 20s makes me want to avoid birth altogether, sometimes. I don’t want to deal with the aesthetic issues (”pancake boobs”) and especially not health issues such as incontinence, pain from loosened ligaments, mental health etc etc. Sometimes I think I would like kids, but not at the cost of chronic pain or hating myself. I wouldn’t be financially or emotionally ready prior to my early 30s.

  • amazing results!! I have an 11yr old and my husband wants another but I’m scared my body won’t be the same. it took me a long time to snap back after my daughter but seeing your results has given me inspiration. thank you! You look awesome!

  • So glad I found this video. I’m 2 months post with my 2nd and I’ve experienced the same in how it’s different and slower the second time. I’m trying to be patient, but I’m so excited to get back to my old self and old clothes and be done with all this baby stuff…except I want my baby to stop growing and stay just the same 😉

  • Thanks for the share! How did you create the background? Is it an image that you placed behind your video and you’re recording on a green screen? super curious lol, or is it just a regular video with the camera only focusing on you? or post recording edits? lol #askingforafriend LOL

  • i breastfed my baby and lost even more weight than i wanted to. producing milk makes your body burn calories like crazy, plus its super beneficial for your baby

  • good video, getting enough rest(sleep when baby sleeps) worked for me along with belly wrapping and breastfeeding. your third photo is where my belly is now and I am 3.5 wks postpartum. I have already lost 25lbs, and I have not started working out yet, just doing light yoga and gentle walking. my midwife says that strenuous exercise too soon postpartum can cause prolapse of the uterus. congratulations on your sweetie! she’s so cute! I think the sleep and water intake is the major difference between baby 1 and 2. I was doing my masters thesis with baby 1, and was quite stressed. this baby I sleep or rest as much as possible and I drink almost 20oz of water or smoothie with each breastfeeding, which is about a gallon with baby’s growth spurts.this time around I have less stress postpartum so I think I’m faring better.

  • Hey Ashley! This is the first video i’ve seen of yours and i wanted to say thank you for posting it up for everyone to see. I am currently 18 weeks pregnant and this will be my first baby.. I am having a little girl. I am very worried about weight gain, and my diet. I am wondering if you have any advice as far as vegan dieting is concerned for prenatal and post natal health. Also what type of stretch mark cream did you use during your pregnancy?

  • I have PCOS and I’ve been wondering how it would affect my periods after birth and whether or not I should be breastfeeding for when I do have a child. Any suggestions? (I’m not pregnant yet, just curious)

  • You are gorgeous. Your baby is gorgeous. I love how you talk about mental health and tell people how important it really is. You’re an inspiration!

  • Supposed to deliver tomorrow! I don’t know how long it’ll take for me to go back to my weight because this pregnancy was so painful I haven’t been able to exercise (even walks are painful!) for the last 10 weeks. I’ll try this once I feel my body has healed ��

  • My girls are 17 months apart and having babies that close for me took a toll on my body. It took me 14 months post baby #2 to reach my pre first baby weight. My body still looks completely different but finally feel like myself. Everyone’s journey is different:) happy to see you doing well!!

  • I am 3 months post partum & 10 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight (breastfeeding has helped a lot). I’ve been feeling a bit discouraged about the extra weight, but your video has really inspired me to put forth the extra effort. Thanks!

  • oh! EIM you talk about 1 year of maternity leave over here in United Arab Emirates we get only 45 days after birth to return to back to work

  • I’m going to follow your tips. I’m 10 weeks pregnant rn and my belly is pretty much flat I haven’t been gaining weight so far but this are very good tips.

  • 7 months now after birth and I am bleeding so heavily and I started birth control about 2 months ago and am still having heavy flow. It has never been like this ever. I can’t even walk to the restroom in the morning without leaking all the way down my legs. Sorry if this is TMI but I’m not sure what to do. Will this eventually get back to normal? I can’t bleed like this every month. It’s like 3 full days of murder scene every time I get up to walk. Please help!

  • I have a 2 year old girl and 4 year old girl, just now losing weight, pilates definitely help and I do weight training,finally staying on a healthy diet was what was the hardest part, thanks for all the tips

  • My periods came when my girl was 1 year old and i stopped bfeeding her… strangely now i dont have bleeding at night i only have periods in day time… even if im due i will see them as i wake up and go to the toilet. Anyone else too?

  • she walks for an hour. its hard doing this. i applaud you. i have a treadmill but i dont use it. im not jealous because i knw u have earned that body through hard work

  • my baby is 3 month old. I lost 20lb right after birth but the other 20lb stick on me since I got home from the hospital. I do breastfeed and exercise. still no weight comes off��

  • I get itchy before my period too and my boobs hurt so o don’t even track it but because I had the same symptoms when I was pregnant, I didn’t even realize it until 2 months lol

  • I want to appreciate Dr Ehizele for using his herbal medicine to cure my family herpes virus,since 3years ago my family have been having this herpes disease and it have been giving my family challenges,we were so perplexed cause my family have taken several drugs to be cure but every of our effort was in-vain,a fateful morning i was browsing through the internet then i saw several testimonies about Dr.Ehizele curing people of their herpes disease immediately i contacted Dr Ehizele on his email: [email protected]}, told him about my family troubles and he told me that my family must be cure,so he prepare a herbal medicine for my family which we use for 2 weeks and everything was like a dream for my family,my family herpes disease was totally gone. he can also cure the following, High/low blood pressure, HSV, 1,2 and 3, Diabetes, Cancer, Asthma Unable to get pregnant, heart problem, bad breath and can also get your ex back, grant you all your heart desires  etc. why don’t you contact him today and be free from your diseases and get  your heart desires  on email, [email protected] or whatsapp him on +2347089384319

  • I really appreciate you sharing all of the numbers. People just don’t do that, and it breeds the fear of the unknown for women like myself who are fearful to step into motherhood. I’m grateful for your video.

  • Great video, Carly! I’m about to have twins and excited to get my body back and feel like myself again! Not sure if my skin will ever look the same, but that’s ok…like you said, growing humans is awesome ��

  • Thank you so much for sharing. I really needed to hear “Just give yourself time.” I’m only one week out and I can’t imagine ever getting back to my pre-pregnancy body. Thanks for the tips I will be using them!

  • after my c section I didn’t want the band cause I couldn’t bend but I regret not using it cause I have still 28lbs lingering 7mo later ugh

  • So amazed at you uploading so much after her birth. Please discount the criticism of everything you do by some viewers. God bless you guys.
    Proverbs 31:30

  • I got my period back when my first was three months old. And got pregnant again when she was 6 months old. So my children are exactly 15 months apart.

  • Just found your channel! Even after a year and a half postpartum, I am still not anywhere near my goal weight!! Discouraging but like you said I have time:)

  • So nice video in India people are hiding these type of problems and avoiding the suggestions. Here is another article about postpartum https://www.girlandpower.com/postpartum-period-what-the-first-period-after-pregnancy-is-like/ let’s see

  • Currently a postpartum mama who’s having long periods!? 7 months after birth. I’ve been freaked that my body is broken. Also I totally feel my uterus contracting �� first time it happened I freaked!

  • I’m a new mom and I’m 9 months post partum. I haven’t done any workouts since giving birth but will I still be able to loose the belly fat even after this long?

  • I love this video it gives me hope. I’m 37 weeks so we will see how my pp journey goes. My fingers are crossed that it goes as nicely as yours did.

  • I have this problem my baby is 4 months old and im verry depressed big time and i want loss weight im in regimen i eat just cabbage soupe and fruits all except bananna and i feel like i will stay like this all my life

  • Never mess with your period cycle or try to stop your period with those freaking IUD’s with hormones or any implant / birth control…. its not natural, fucks up your body and hormones.

  • Nice video but I was waiting for you guys to mention a dip in the breast milk… I have a 3 months old baby, got my periods last week and now my supply is almost nil and it’s driving me crazy. I am not exclusively bf but now the baby won’t take it because there is no milk and starts throwing a tantrum as soon as I pick him up in my arms…

  • Wonderful honest down to earth video and she with it all.. Just one question.. I drink a lot of water and I mean a lot but still seem to get a daily chocolate craving.. Did you experience this with the nursing

  • When she says she doesn’t have stretch marks I call lies lol every girl gets them she may just not be able to notice them because her skin on her stomach is tight

  • Yes Angel with “thinking” about the 4 kids! I am Angel. Angel is me.

    Edited to say: And God bless yall who got a bit of a break. My period always came back right after the 6 week period. And I breastfed all of my children over a year.

  • Great video. Really appreciate all the information you share on your channel. I actually got my period two months after I had my baby! But I didn’t get regular until about five months, I would have it every other month until about five months after she was born. I also cramp more now than I did before getting pregnant. And I am breastfeeding. Not sure who started the myth about not having a period until you stop breastfeeding but that’s certainly not the case for me!

  • Why is this on my feed when I was told multiple times I can’t have children and had endometrial ablation at 31. It’s almost like YouTube is a dick. Oh ya. YouTube is a dick. I forgot.

  • I still vomit often with periods. I once vomited in my now-husband car when we were still just dating (he still decided that he wanted to marry me and we didn’t sleep together until we were married).

  • iv been binge watching your videos, i love how real you are and how you just have no time for mummyshaming.
    I would love to see you do a video with youtuber sarah rae vargas, i think her personality would be a really good fit for your chanel aswell, itd be such a funny and real vid <3

  • My baby is now 5 mos old no period yet tho my concern is not havng sex bec it hurts. Esp the part where thy cut me open for CS delivery. It hurts a lot after sex that i even have fever and chills after.

  • My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website because my dream was to start a new life with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested for a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his love spell. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. The spell works perfectly and my husband is now back to me again. My “husband” is back and we went to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. You can contact Dr. Murugu him via Email: ([email protected]) OR ([email protected])

  • Have you tried to not consume any caffeine for several days to see if it helps your baby to sleep better at night and during the day and to be less fussy? With my babies, any kind of caffeine made their tummy ache and they cried more because of it during the day. I finally just gave it up to help them be at peace and myself to be less tired. Once I gave it up I actually felt more energy after the caffeine got out of my system completely which may take at least three days because caffeine builds up in our body. It may also help your baby’s reflux because caffeine makes our body more acidic and more acid worsens reflux and it may be affecting her in that way also through your milk. It’s worth a try to see if it may help you and your baby. Blessings!

  • This is really helpful and down-to-earth. I’m ten weeks postpartum and this is the first really useful, specific advice I’ve come across about the physical and psychological nuts and bolts of getting back into shape. I really appreciate it!

  • I am exclusively breastfeeding my baby is 1 month and 2 weeks and I got my period today.. is that normal? Anyone else got it as early as 1 month while breastfeeding?

  • In Germany it’s 8 weeks after birth with full pay and then 10 months with about 65% of your pay before (for mums)plus 2 months for the dad or you split 14 months with the dad however you like it.

  • Have you looked into FAM (fertility awareness method)? It’s charting your cycle by looking at your cervical mucus daily so that you know when you’re ovulating & you’ll know exactly when you’re going to menstruate:)

  • I got mine before my six week checkup and it was a blood bath! At one point my husband was following from the bed to the bathroom mopping up the trail of blood.

  • i gained alot with my first. 165-226my bmi is about 24% though which is whats important not so much weight but muscle to fat ratio. this pregnancy alot less weight due to eating high nutritious foods +working out consistently. high fat, mostly avocados and greens intake with high caloric burn+ 10lbs weights lots and lots of water+ breastfeefing+ as much sleep as you can get. i LOVE working out and eating right especially in the summer.

  • Breastfed both babies; with my son it came back at 11 months pp, and my daughter turns 1 yr next week and I still haven’t gotten it back ��

  • It’s really amazing what you learn. I really needed this, I am a soon to be first time mom and I thought you got your period right after. But reading these comments and the difference in times just astonishing

  • Очень жаль, что ты удалила видео о том, как ты поправилась(( я очень часто к ним возвращалась, потому что ДО СИХ ПОР не могу поправиться ��
