21 With 2 Babies (Anonymous)

April 26, 2012

I’m 21 years old with 2 beautiful little boys. My oldest is 2 and my youngest is 5 months. That makes me 5 months postpartum. I breastfed my oldest for 9 months and am currently still breast feeding my 5 month old. I am still adjusting to my body there are somedays when I feel pretty and other days I want to put on a tshirt and pajama pants and not be seen. I’m only 5;1 and weighed 102 when I got pregnant with my 2 year old. At the end of my pregnancy I weighed 127 and delivered a healthy 6lb 14ounce baby boy. At about 9 months postpartum I was down to 104lbs when i found out I was pregnant again I only gained 21lbs with this last pregnancy but my son weighed in at 7lbs 14ounces. People tell me all the time you don’t look like you’ve had 2 kids and all I can say is I feel like it. My husband tells me I’m beautiful all the time but I just can’t get over the thought I’ve given birth to 2 children there is no way my body is beautiful. I know it’s stupid and we should all love our body’s but society makes that very hard. I love my boys and would do anything for them but I just want to feel good again. This site has helped my realize that all women are beautiful screw what the rest of the world says!

    You do NOT look like you had two children. Where’s your stretch marks? Your saggy boobs? Your baby pouch? I’m so jealous of your breasts! (sorry if that’s weird). I’m 23 and I have a 10 month old daughter. I was 160 before baby; 240 the day I gave birth. Right now I’m 175 but still looking chunky. It’s so depressing and I know how you feel. I feel ugly in my new body. I just want to look “normal” again.
    I think you look beautiful.

    I am also 21 with 2 boys ages 2 and 1. I have a stretched out tummy and flabby wrinkly breast. I wpuld be satisfied with your body if I had it. Although I am taller, 5’7” and now weigh how much I did pre pregnancy, I did weigh 50 lbs heavier after my second was born. I lost the weight but still got my lose skin allover. Trust me you look awesome.

    You look fantastic; very slender and healthy. may I ask how tall you are? I just had my first baby, i’m 24, and I was 135 before baby and now i’m 155. I’m 5’5 and am a bit depressed With how i look. So, if it’s ok, how tall r u?

    Thank you for all the positive comments, it is nice to know there are other women out there that feel the same as I do. And I’m 5’1, I am back down to 106lbs now but before baby #1 I had my perfect body and didn’t have to try, but know I have to try. I’m learning to love my body I tell myself it’s only been 5 months give yourself time.

    Just a few questions..Did you breastfeed? Did you notice any changes in your breasts (size, sensitivity etc..) from before / after preganancy? What about intimacy..was the “feeling” affected at all? ( you dont have to answer, but it is something that worries me later…) Were expecting our first..Im only 12 weeks yet I can say my boobs have grown from B to C …and I dont want to loose them (obviously) but was just curious your take on it? You look incredible, and hopefully after everything I can still look as good as you!

    I breastfed my oldest for 9 months, and they went back to thier original size after that. I’m still currently breast feeding my youngest and I’ve noticed I don’t like them to really be touched right now, but when I finished breast feeding the first time they were completely normal. And breast feeding really is best my boys never got sick while they were nursing. And I didnt get stretch marks on my boobs from nursing they were a gift given to me by my first son while pregnant. Lol!

    Oh and my breasts went from a C cup to a DD with my first then back to a C. Now they are D cups because I’m still nursing.

    One word: WOOW! You look absolutely stunning! You look like you never were pregnant at all, hope I look the same after my pregnancy. One question, do you have any stretch marks (because I can’t see them at the pics)?

    I don’t have stretchmarks on my stomach, even though my belly was huge with both pregnancies. But I do have some on my inner thighs and my breasts are absolutely covered with them. Actually my sister was recently pregnant and complaining about stretchmarks and my husband said “if you want to see stretchmarks look at these” and pulled my shirt down so you could see my marks. It kinda hurt my feelings when he did it. I know I have them, but everyone else doesn’t need to know.

    I am sure you might never read this, but you have an amazing body. Your husband is a lucky guy, very lucky. Society is a pain, but don’t listen to them. Listen to your husband, he sounds like a smart man and I promise he isn’t just telling you what you want to hear. You are breath taking. :)
