Cellulite

Does cellulite go away after the baby is born? I'm fairly small and athletic (before preg. anyway) and have noticed a lot of cellulite appearing on my butt and thighs. I have not retained a lot of water, in fact, I have virtually no swelling anywhere. Will this cellulite go away, or am I stuck with it forever? Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I don't know - but I am also in your shoes - I have always been in good shape and very athletic, yet it seems no matter what, I end up with a sorta dimply look on my upper thighs and b___t, even though my fiance swears I am making it up. Anyone know the answer to this?!?

Same with me - I still have skinny legs, yet above the knee looks like I have cellulite. Even my upper arms look that way. And I won't even bring up the b___t.... Eww. My mother swears that it is fluid retention - even if you don't think that you are retaining anything. According to her, it should disappear as we flush out all the excess fluid after birth. Here's hoping!

Good, I sure hope your mom knows what she's talking about KrisD...I'm banking on her answer to get me through the next 2 months!!!

Me too. My thighs look like they have lots of cellulite and so do my upper arms! I'm wondering if it's fluid cus I've gained a lot but don't know where it's all going. Someone told me that they pee'd a lot after birth as they were retaining so much fluid. I hope your mom's right too!
