People don't want to see pictures of my belly post-partum...they would hate me even more. At least with the last three, my belly just looked like a deflated balloon right after birth.

That is cool to see the difference a week can make all by itself.

You look good!

I think that the difference is your abs re-engaging.

Thanks for posting the afterwards belly pics! So fascinating (easy to say when mine is still growing)

Yes, thanks for posting your postpartum shots! I have always found my postpartum belly to be a kind of mystery--who knows what it will do next?! :)

I think my favorite description of the postpartum belly was in the book _Operating Instructions: A Journal of my Son's First Year_ by Anne Lamott. She's 3 weeks postpartum.

"People kept trying to prepare me for how soft and mushy my stomach would be after I gave birth, but I secretly thought, Not this old buckerina. I think most people undergoing chemo secretly believe they won't lose their hair.

"Oh, but my stomach, she is like a waterbed covered with flannel now. When I lie on my side in bed, my stomach lies politely beside me, like a puppy."

That "like a puppy" always gets me. Love it.
