You know the bum I'm talking about, right? A little saggy, a little flat, a little wider than what it used to be. Mom bum. The fact is the body changes, often permanently, during pregnancy. With each subsequent pregnancy, it can change more and more.

Okay, I know, eavesdropping is wrong, but sometimes I just can't help it; so many restaurants place their tables basically on top of one another. I wouldn't mind so much -- let's face it people watching can be fun -- except that over hearing fitness conversations is usually frustrating; nine times out of ten what I hear is wrong.
