2 Weeks Postpartum, Mother at 19 (Anonymous)

February 26, 2009

I had my first son two weeks ago, a week before my 19th birthday. I was so worried about what my body would be like postpartum because I took quite a bit of pride in my body before the pregnancy. Now I realize that it really doesn’t matter as much now that I’ve had my son, and I’m proud of what my body is capable of and of the beautiful healthy baby boy it created. I do have my moments of insecurity and I feel far less desirable than before, but I’m working on getting back into shape. My fiance assures me that I look great still, but of course I sometimes don’t believe him (I’m such a girl sometimes…) Attached are pictures of me before pregnancy, during, and after, and a couple of my son Raiden of course =)

    I had my son 2 weeks before my 19th birthday and I was the same way. Before I got pregnant, I was the “it” girl lol. My boyfriend was the star football player in High School and was in the news papers almost every week. He got a full scholarship for football so I followed him to college and got pregnant my Freshman year. I’m so happy he is not like most guys tho. We came back home together to take care of our son. I feel bad sometimes because I feel like its my fault that he have to get go of his scholarship. We have been together for 3 years now and have a 2 month old. I love my son to death and even tho my stomach will never look the same as before, I’m happy for what I got out of it. I’m a woman that earned my stripes.
