8 Post Baby Body Changes (That No One Tells You About)

Post baby body changes. As a new mom, you’re dealing with a  lot. Sure there may be some extra weight, but there are things that happen later that you probably never thought would happen to you. If it makes you feel any better, they happen to a lot of women, so there’s really nothing strange about them.

1. Incontinence Post Baby

So, you had your baby and now you feel like junior isn’t the only one who needs to wear a diaper. All of a sudden you can’t control your bladder. Embarrassing? Yes. Normal? Yes. During labor, nerves can get damaged. When this happens your body doesn’t always get the signal that you have to go until after you already have. The good news is that within a few weeks post baby, things should back to normal. If they don’t, then it’s time to call your doctor.

2. Hemorrhoids Post Baby

Some women get hemorrhoids during pregnancy, so getting them after giving birth can seem strange. During a vaginal birth, some women get hemorrhoids from pushing. These should go away in a few weeks.

3. You Still “Feel” Your Kids Post Baby

You may feel like you’re in some type of movie, but you quickly realize you can “feel” your kids even though they’re no longer growing inside of you. This “sixth sense” can make you feel a little odd, but a lot of moms get this way too post baby. For example, you may not hear your child crying, but you wake up, getting a strange feeling, only to have your child wake a few seconds later calling for you.

4. Swollen Legs Post Baby

That swollen feeling doesn’t go away once the baby comes out. Swollen legs, varicose veins, and spider veins can all happen. While they may get better after losing the baby weight, they won’t completely disappear.

5. Sweating Post Baby

Carrying the extra weight of a baby can make you hot and sweaty. Even post baby, you may notice yourself sweating a little extra. This is because your body needs to get rid of all the extra fluid it built up during the pregnancy.

6. Hair Loss Post Baby

You just had a baby, now you’re losing your hair. Why is this happening? Well, after giving birth your estrogen levels take a nose dive. This makes hair follicles rest a bit, leading to hair falling out. Don’t worry. You’re not going to go bald. Normally this stops after about three months.

7. Smaller Breasts Post Baby

We all know breasts get bigger during pregnancy as your body gets ready to nurse. Post baby and after you’re done nursing, don’t be surprised if you go down a cup size from where you started from. It all has to do with hormones and the effects of breastfeeding.

8. Food Allergies After Baby

You never had an allergy to any type of food. Now that you’re a mom you’ve developed one. Why? New allergies post pregnancy are linked to a lower immune function.

These are just a few of things you could experience post baby. If something seems normal, but doesn’t feel right to you, it doesn’t hurt to get it checked out. Never underestimate a mother’s intuition!

  8. When asked if Google Play Music subscribers can make the change to YouTube Songs Costs with the very same songs
    library, the spokesman just described: “absolutely nothing will certainly change for clients of Google Play Songs” Now we
    have a much better suggestion of what this implies, many thanks to
    a Tweet from YouTube’s product supervisor,
    T. Jay Fowler, who promises a “soft landing” for Google Play Songs users.
    Users can expect their “collections, playlists, and also preferences” on Google Play Music to be transferred between the two services when this unpreventable change occurs.
    Likewise, according to Roman, customers will certainly still be able to publish their own songs
    to YouTube Songs.
