When your body does something embarrassing, it's always comforting to learn that you're not alone. There's nothing better than hearing "me too," after you quietly confess to a group of fellow moms that you pee in your pants more often than you ever expected. The truth is, there are some "gross" things all postpartum bodies do that are perfectly normal, and pretty universal for women in the months after delivering. Sure, there are those few lucky ladies who bounce back from delivery and feel like their body returns to normal within days. But if you are among the vast majority, it's going to take some time for things to go back to being how you remember.
Keep in mind that for the duration of your pregnancy your body underwent a litany of changes. From a growing belly to changing hormones and back again, being pregnant altered your body for the better part of a year, and time is needed for those things to balance back out to your pre-pregnancy state. Not to mention you're healing from the incredible feat of delivering a human. So don't be discouraged if you experience any of these gross things while living in your postpartum body. Keep in mind it's temporary and, more importantly, you're in good company.
