1st Pregnancy and I loved it (Rachel)

April 14, 2008

I am a long time visitor but have yet to get the guts up to contribute. First let me say I loved being pregnant and I can’t stop bothering my husband about getting started with the second. While I am generally happy about my body post partum, I do complain about random stretch marks on my booty (hence the boy shorts which have become a close friend). My husband thinks I am as beautiful as ever and tells me all the time. He says being a mother seperates you from just being a woman. In the pics you will find a 12 and 16 week pic (some of my belly pics from the pregnancy) and some pics we took today. The pics today are just over a year post partum. God Bless!

Updated here and here.

    You should listen to your husband :) You look great! Even better than some women who haven’t even had babies.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I changed it, Rachel. For some reason, the uploader never tells me any names so I assume people want to be anon until they tell me otherwise. :)

    @Bonnie: Thanks for changing it and letting me be a part of this great site.

    @Nikki: No secret. I don’t work out or anything. I have spent my whole life being 105-110 lbs. Everyone deals with their own demons, I assure you that. I have been fortunate when it comes to weight but there is something for everyone.

    You look amazing! AND you have a baby too, better than a train set, though more expensive, I say!

    I was hoping I could post my email along with the description I wrote above my pictures. Is that possible?

    My email is I just moved to a new town so I was hoping to make some friends on here since I have so few outside of the “virtual world” at the moment.

    Thanks and I look forward to hearing from people.
