I changed a lot too because my priority is my child or should i say my children now since i just birth birth late last year. I don't shop that much but when I had my firct child, I would always drop by the mall on my way home to buy things for my baby. I've learned to really go over the things displayed in the department which I seldom do then. Physically, I gained weight but I lost it after a year since I travel and go to everyday. With my second child, I lost weight after a month because of hyperthyroidism. I am not that vain but with my second child, I was not bothered with how I look. I don't even want to use conditioner even when it had become a habit. My patience with children seem to last longer now that I have children and my interest in their almost everything taht concerns them is really great. I want then to put up my own school, but now, as long as I have saved enough for their future, I would be contented.

I don't think I change a lot after giving birth to a baby. My weight is almost the same like before. But my belly seems a little bit bigger than before. I seldom pay attention to our appearance any more because my focus in on my child and family.

of course that is natural, but you have to do something to get back in shape. i have four children and i still manage to get back in shape but not the same when i dont have kids yet but close to being like that. it is not easy but you have to stay fit its good for you and for your baby too. congrats on your baby and goodluck

I think it would be easier to list the ways you stayed the same after the baby. I have just gotten back to where I can actually do my hair and make up every day when I wake up but that's only becuase my son and daughter are at the stage where they will take care of themselves for a short period of time. It's hard to see how you were before and how you are now. But for the most part the changes that have occured are really for the better. I would never go back to who I was a hundred percent but I'm ok with that.

My lifestyle changed a lot after giving birth to my baby... before it was always about me or what i want... but now... it's about what my baby needs or what is the best for her... Like when i go to the grocery... most of the items that i buy are for her... sometimes nothing for me... when i go to the department store... i would go straight to the children's section to look for cute clothes for her... I am now waiting for her to grow a little older so that i can travel again... but of course... i want to take her with me...
