Age 25, 2 pregnancies, 1 birth. Baby is 5 months old.
Hey mommas! I am new mom to a healthy, happy,and beautiful 5 month old baby girl. My pregnancy, delivery, and recovery were all very easy. In fact, my fiance and I did the deed 2 1/2 weeks after delivery and everything was great. I was exclusively breast feeding until about 3 1/2 months, then started weaning. I had issues with supply since day one. Anyway, my fiance have been talking about the future and we both agreed that we want the kids to be close in age. Our plan was to get pregnant again in March. Well, we weren’t being to careful about sex and now I am about 4 weeks pregnant. We are super happy and excited! But I’m scared about the risks of getting pregnant too soon. I’ve heard about increased risk of autism and low birth weight. I’m scared the baby won’t get enough nutrients because my body is still recovering and the baby’s organs won’t properly form. I’m just scared for the baby’s health. I need to words of encouragement and reassurance from other mommies that have had back to back pregnancies. Has anybody been in a situation like this and want to share their experience? I would really appreciate it!
Almost 32 years old
Children: almost 13, 9,7
My weight has fluctuated over the years but I’ve always been slim. I am proud of what my body has done. And I believe all women can love their bodies after pregnancy. Hard work and a good attitude mixed with the right support system are very important. I am happy with how I look!
my name is desiree im 22 a mother of one amazing boy who is 14 months before baby I was 125 pounds which is curvy for my height a tiny 5 ft tall at full term I was 172 a year later im still bouncing between 140 and 145. my husband is the kindest most understanding person he “loves” my new mommy curves and I was “too skinny before ” but I feel disgusting I wear 2 girdles sometimes just to hide my bloated belly which is partially due to ulcerative colitis that was triggered by pregnancy I wish I could fix it but no amount of working out did anything to help and surgery is too drastic and expensive im thankful for my awesome son and and amazing hubby but I want to feel sexy again I loved my body before I just want to go back to that. my close friend has 4 kids and is a size 2 with barely a mark on her so I kinda expected the same with myself this site showed me everyone is different and im not alone in the struggle to be comfortable in my own skin again after baby thank you for that ?
