After your baby is born, your body gets rid of the blood and tissue that was inside your uterus. This is called vaginal discharge or lochia. For the first few days, it’s heavy, bright red and may contain blood clots. Over time, the flow gets less and lighter in color. For the first couple of days after giving birth, you’ll be able to feel the top of your uterus in the area of your belly button.
In a week, your uterus weighs a little over a pound – half of what it weighed just after you gave birth. After two weeks, it’s down to a mere 11 ounces and located entirely within your pelvis. Two of the most common places that women notice this change is in their hips and feet.
Even if you weigh the same after having a baby, you may not wear the same clothing size or shoe size, as your hips and feet can widen permanently after pregnancy and birth. I wear a full shoe size larger now after four children!Some women find that after having a baby they become gluten or lactose intolerance. Others have noticed that they get hay fever and have other allergic reactions to things that never bothered them before. 8. Your nipples become unrecognisable.
One in 4 women will hang onto 11 lbs. or more (5 kg or more) a year after giving birth. And after having a baby, a woman will be, on average, 2.5 to 5 lbs. (1 to 2 kg) heavier than she was prior to. Right after giving birth, your estrogen and progesterone levels drop dramatically, which can contribute to the “baby blues” (mood swings, anxiety, sadness or irritability, which resolve within a week or so of birth) or postpartum depression (similar symptoms that are more intense, last longer and interfere with your daily life). The usual color of your areola and nipples may morph to a darker shade during pregnancy, then stay that way after you have a baby. This can also happen for your labia and even some moles on your.
After you give birth, postpartum bleeding — i.e. lochia — can last for up to six weeks. It will be just like a very heavy period made up of leftover blood, tissue from your uterus and mucus. Bleeding is heaviest for the first three to 10 days, then it will taper off — going from red to pink to brown to yellowish-white. Your body carried baby for 40 weeks (or thereabouts), shifting and stretching to accommodate your growing child, and then it underwent the exhausting task of childbirth—it stands to reason you’ll experience some physical changes once all is said and done. Curious what to expect?
It’s normal to have a decreased sex drive after giving birth. This feeling can last for months. In one study of postpartum women, 20 percent had little or no desire for sex three months after delivery, and another 21 percent had a complete loss of desire or aversion to sexual activity.
