kim zolciakReal Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak is the latest celeb to give birth ... and then magically whittle away back to her (almost) pre-birth weight within minutes. Oh, and look, she's fresh as a daisy -- hair done, makeup perfect -- to boot. Celebs! They're just like us ... only the opposite!

Kim's 15-year-old daughter, Brielle, tweeted this pic of her mom, who just gave birth to baby Kash Kade, along with the caption: "Seriously... who looks like this after 2 weeks of having a baby?"

Seriously. Who does look like this two weeks after having a baby? Even if I was a rich celebrity with people catering to my every whim, this would not have been possible for me. Not for a second.

Hopefully, things will be different when I have my next baby, because I'll have a better idea of what to expect, but this time around? Hooo boy. I was a hot mess after giving birth. No, a hot mess.

Despite all the preparing I did, I had no idea how sore and ... banged up I'd be. Apologies if this is TMI, but I could barely walk the week following the birth of my daughter. And sleep? Yeah, that didn't happen at all. Whether the baby was sleeping or not, I was up. Be it because I was anticipating her getting up, or I was nervous. I don't know. But I do know it was insane. I don't think a team of 17 makeup artists and hair professionals and magicians and sorcerers could have made me look remotely presentable. I was way too overwhelmed.

So, hats off to Kim, I guess. And Kourtney and Hilary and Snooki, and any other woman in this world who can pull it together a bit after they've had a baby. Lord knows I couldn't. Hopefully, I'll have better luck next time. Dear God, hopefully.

What was your post-birth experience like?
