10 Days Postpartum with Twins (Anonymous)

I’m 23 and have been married 2 and a half years. Pre-pregnancy I was 5’1 and 115 lbs. I went up to 165 the day I had my twins boys by c-section. I was never happy with my body before pregnancy my lowest weight was 78 lbs. With some help from my hubby over a year I got up to a healthy weight but not a healthy attitude. So of course I was miserable throughout my pregnancy. Now 10 days after I gave birth to my beautiful baby boys I couldn’t be happier with how I look. I haven’t weighed myself yet as I’m still a bit swollen but I really could care less. I wish I wouldn’t have wasted so much time being unhappy with myself while I was pregnant. I had the perfect pregnancy health wise. Never went on bedrest and was active up until the day I delivered. I hope that this will give hope to others worried about how the will look after pregnancy.

    You look terrific and your little boys are just as cute as can be. They look big, too! My twin girls were 5-12 and 6-10. Congrats, mommy!

    OH my gosh!!! I am just like wow! You look fabulous and you have such perfect little babies!!! :D Congratulations!!!
    I also had to say that you did a great job during your pregnancy. You were definitely very healthy. I just had one, I am/was about the same weight and height as you and I was 160 the day I gave birth and very very swollen!

    Oh jeez, your babies are just beautiful! I love those swaddlers. I have a similar story. I was super obsessive about my weight before my twins. Then I gained 60lbs during the pregnancy and am still 17lbs over my pre-pregnancy weight. And I just don’t care as much as I used to. Strange, how your life becomes so much more significant after babies. I also wish I wouldn’t have wasted so much time hating myself.

    Your babies are gorgeous! That’s great that you’re not worrying about the scale. You’ll have lots of time later to regain your figure. Just focus on eating well and getting rest! Twins keep you hopping:)
