I was 23 when I got pregnant with my first little girl. The pregnancy went well and I ended up with no stretchmarks. I gained 35 lbs. My second daughter was born 6 years later! Again, I gained 35 pounds and got only one little stretch mark on my hip. I never dieted to lose weight, just ate right and walked with my stroller. The first picture is of me 3 years after my first birth. The second picture is of me 6 months after my second birth. Same bikini! I was never secure with my body before I had babies. In fact, I never wore a bikini in public until AFTER my first baby! I somehow felt so sexy and womanly after becoming a mother, though I was never overweight, I was self-consious of my curves. Now I flaunt them!!!
