2 Beautiful Boys and an “Apron” (Anonymous)

I was always skinny. 111 pounds before the birth of my first son, and proceeded to gain 55 pounds. I ended up with stretch marks from literally my breasts to a few inches past my knees. After I lost the weight, my breasts were just loose skin, nothing else. My stomach looked pretty wrinkly, but I was okay because I was a size 0 and could wear tight shirts. I just had to tuck an inch of skin into my pants! I just had my second beautiful son 8 weeks ago, and gained the same amount of weight, and it’s coming off pretty easily. I went from 155 and am now 119. But my stomach is just loose skin, I knew this could happen but it consumes me every day. I have so may pairs of jeans I know I will never be able to fit into because of the loose skin draping over my pants. I have an absolutely wonderful husband who said, after I showed it to him sitting down, “what kind of husband would i be if I cared about that? You had a baby!” But he said if it bothers me that much, I can get a tummy tuck next year.

    Ha ha, I begged my husband to let me get a tummy tuck after our second…and last baby which is due in less than 3 months and he finally agreed, I say if your not happy with it do something! and the gym cant tighten skin so Im all for some snip snip too! You already look really good, so I am sure that anything more you do will produce amazing results!

    Your stomach looks just like mine except for I am a size 6 or 7! I hate tucking it in because I feel like it’s so much to tuck that people are going to see the flap through my jeans. Goofy I know. We are lucky to have such *blind* husbands and hopefully we’ll feel better after tummy tucks! :) I want 2 more kids though so you’ll be enjoying yours sooner that I will enjoy mine.
