22 and 2 Kids Later (Jenny)

January 21, 2011

My children are definately the best things to ever happen to me. I first got pregnant right before my 19th birthday and had a beautiful 8 lb baby boy. Before i got pregnant i only weighed 97 lbs and ended up 139 lbs when i gave birth. After i had him it didnt take too long to get back into shape. Everything went back to normal, other than a few strtch marks but nothing major. I could not have been happier. Then at 21 i got pregnant again. I was a little worried this time things wouldnt go back the same. I started this pregnancy out at 105 lbs and ended at 132 lbs. I gained less weight but my belly was so big. Then on August 31th 2010 i gave birth to another beautiful boy. This one only weighing 7 lbs 10 oz. Even though i am only 4 months pp things are not going back the same. I actually only weigh 98 lbs right now but my stomach is horrible. I dont know if you can fix wrinkled skin. Its something im having a very hard time dealing with. My fiance cares alot about appearence and even though he says it doesnt bother him, i feel like it does. Which makes me not want him to look at me naked. I’m glad i found this site. It has helped me feel alot better about myself and enough so that i wated to share my story. Maybe hearing strangers opinions might help. Thanks,

    I just dropped over this blog… you look great for 4 month after birth…

    Don’t be so harsh with yourself…

    Pregnancy takes a toll and I wish I had your figure…

    You really look great… and be glad for two healthy children…

    Anyway… I also think beauty comes from the inside not always from the outside… never judge a book by the cover…

    warmest regards from Germany

    Wow. You look ridiculously pretty. You shouldn’t be so hard on yourself. Many would trade to be in your shoes.

    You look amazing. Look how flat your stomach is and there’s barely any wrinkles at all. You’re lucky, be thankful. And you’re only 4 months pp, that’s incredible. You can search under my name and look at my wrinkled/extra skin belly if it makes you feel better.

    It sounds like you feel blessed to have had those two babies, so I would concentrate on that and enjoy them.

    I think if you give it some more time the skin might tighten up more. I just had my second and also gained less in my second pregnancy but I feel like I have more lose skin this time around too, I’m not quite 2 months pp so I’m hoping that my skin just needs a little more time. I’m trying some skin firming lotions to see if they help. You look great for 4 months pp I hope I bounce back that well in the next 2 months!

    You commented on my post asking about the lotions. I’ve been using a coQ10 lotion by Nivea and a skin firming lotion by Jergens. The tanning salon by me also has a new skin care system that uses red light therapy, it’s supposed to help you produce collagen I think it’s called Angel Beauty? Anyway, ,I’ve been using the 3 for almost 2 months and I think they’re helping a little. If I don’t have the results I want in a few more months I’m going to try Body by Thermage.

    As for the work out, when those pictures were taken I was lifting weights 4-5 days a week (lifting like a bodybuilder) and doing pilates once a week. You don’t have to worry about getting too much muscle, it’s basically impossible for a woman to get “big” with out steroids unless they’re kind of a muscle building freak of nature. I was lifting HEAVY and trying HARD to build muscle and it’s not easy lol. Also keep in mind that muscle is easy to lose, so if you do manage to get more than you want you can lose it by lifting less :) I’m having a hard time getting in the gym now that I have 2 kids, I’m always tired and I don’t want to leave the baby in the gym daycare until he’s at least 12months, I’m paranoid! Good luck to you though!
