5 Things Men Think About Women (But Won't Say) | Adam LoDolce
Men Share What They *Really* Think About Their Wife's Post-Baby Body
If you've had a baby, you know how incredibly strong your body really is. From carrying around nearly 30 extra pounds for months to withstanding labor day pains that no one can truly prepare you for, giving birth can feel like a superhuman feat. And while you (obviously!) love your baby (or babies) more than anything else except coffee (kidding — kind of), building your body confidence back up isn't always easy. Not only do post-baby bodies bear the reminders of how far you stretched to fit that eight-pound wonder, but breastfeeding and simply walking again if you had a C-section can be incredibly tough.
Besides dying to just feel like yourself again, you might be stressing about your husband's attraction to you. It's true that certain things will never be the same again — like the density of your breasts, or the flatness of your lower abs — but do men actually care? While we can't speak for every man, we've found some husbands who can't get enough of their wive's post-baby bods. And what menreallythink about your figure after you give birth is enough to inspire you to sleep in your birthday suit tonight.
"She's so ripped from lifting our baby.""[My wife's] post-baby body is great. She's more fit than ever, even though she doesn't think so. Her legs are strong and toned from carrying our baby from playground to playground. She's so committed to losing those few pesky pounds from pregnancy that she's been a regular at the gym for the last year. It's inspiring to me to see a sleep-deprived, hard-working woman also make time exercise. I find that dedication attractive in her."—Kerry, 29
"I love seeing what her body was meant for.""This might seem weird, but I like seeing our daughter asleep on my wife. The two just seem to fit together like lock and key. They look so comfortable and peaceful together. It's as if a mom's body was shaped in such a way for their children to rest on their chest. I'm jealous that our baby doesn't lay like that on me, but it's beautiful to witness."—Kevin, 29
"Breastfeeding boobs are fun.""I'll admit it: I really, really like my wife's breastfeeding boobs. They're kind of like natural Nerf guns that she has on her body at all times and can always use if she needs to feed our baby. She's not a huge fan of it, but I have squirted her in the face with her own breast milk when she's fallen asleep breastfeeding! Sorry I'm not sorry!"—Jordan, 24
"It amazes me what a woman's body can do.""My wife doesn't understand it because she's self-conscious about it, but when I see her body, I think it's so beautiful. It's a sign of what a woman can do in her all of her glory and all of its extraordinary capabilities that men will never have. I find it incredibly sexy."—Doug, 30
"I seriously can't tell a difference.""She seems to think that everything is changed since we had our son, but honestly, she's just as gorgeous to me now as she was when we first met. My body has changed over the years and I know hers has too, but having a baby didn't make her less attractive. To me, she's still the love of my life and I love anytime we are naked together." —Brandon, 29
"Her boobs totally changed — for good.""My wife carried our twins and I honestly couldn't believe that someone who is 5'6" could actually lug around that much weight. It was impressive! The twins are now six and she lost all of the pregnancy weight, but her boobs pretty much stayed almost a full cup size bigger. I know she was irritated that she had to buy new bras… but I love her new boobs and hope they never get smaller again!"—Lance, 45
"Her body has superpowers.""My wife isn't the most athletic woman — she'll go on a walk here and there, but she doesn't hit up the gym like I do. But when she was pregnant with our son, it was really important for her to give birth naturally. She didn't want any drugs at all, and though her labor was really long (nearly 24 hours), she never gave up. Watching her go through that made me see how strong she really is and honestly, it was like watching a superhero. It was awesome."—Alex, 27
"She's more fun to cuddle.""I'd never tell my girlfriend that I like her after-baby body better than her old one, but I kind of do. She's always been beautiful in my eyes, but since having our daughter, she's become curvier and softer. I like the extra cushion!"—Nick, 40
"Her body built our family.""My wife doesn't have a perfect body and, yes, she's gained some weight since having our children, but I don't care.
