Hip Spread?

Is it true that your hips PERMENATLY spread when you are pregnant? My friend told me that your hips spread and they will never go back to where they were. I am scared because hers spread a LOT and her body shape looks completly different.

Re: Hip Spread?

I think for most people their hips are "back to normal" in 9-12 months. I've been told (and I've read) that many women will get back to their pre-pregnancy weight before they get back to their pre-pregnancy clothes because of this. I think the rule is to just expect it to take a year for your body to get completely back to normal.

Re: Hip Spread?

do you ladies have small hips or wider set hips? I have wide set hips - should I expect this to happen too?
