A heartfelt note.

Dear BabyCenter.com,

I would appreciate it very much if you didn't send me emails titled "What Happened To Your Body?".  What happened to my body, BabyCenter.com, is that it created, grew, and birthed a full-sized human being, thankyouverymuch. Something tells me that the women who have gone through this process don't really need to be reminded that our bodies will never quite be the same level of firmness and perkiness that they once were. We also certainly don't need you to ask if we're having trouble shedding all of that baby weight. I would also like to point out that the state and condition of my lady parts is not one I need you to educate me about, mmkay? I actually do not wonder if said parts will "ever get back to normal" and I don't know who you've been talking to, but I can in fact still "tell when I need to go pee." I sincerely hope that you didn't send this email out to any first-time-moms-to-be, because I'm pretty sure after reading it they would all wonder why in the heck they ever decided to get pregnant in the first place. I think these poor ladies have enough to worry about without your PSA on the not-so-glamorous aspects of childbirth. I appreciate your willingness to educate, but sometimes too much information is, well, too much information. Especially the picture slide show of "real post-baby bellies." Nobody wants to see that. Just saying.

Thank you for your concern, but I am A-OK with my post-baby body. Or at least I'm in denial about it. Either way, mind your own business.

Thanks, and have a nice day!

Yours truly,

Kelsey

I 100% agree! When I saw that subject line in my Inbox, I pushed "delete" without reading it. I'm glad I missed out on the lovely post-baby bellies!

Why do I get left out? No one ever warned me about my post baby body. I think that your body fared much better than mine after H was born. My post baby belly just doesn't seem to want to go away. Cake and ice cream...Maybe.
