2.5 Months PP, Second Cesarean in 2.5 Years (Shannon)

August 6, 2009

Previous posts here and here.

age:22
Pregnancies:2 pregnancies and 2 births

I wrote that I would eventually post some pictures of my PP body, so I am! I am now 3 months PP…the pictures are 2.5 months PP though! The part where my stomach hangs from my cesarean really bugs me…but it has gotten better! Liam is doing great, laughing, smiling, doing good on his tummy, breastfeeding like a champ. I see so much of Connor in him! I read him a book my Mom made me for him called “My Big Brother, My Guardian Angel”, and he loves it. I have made 2 very amazing boys, and I love them both so much!!

Pictures:
6 months pregnant with Connor
About 8 months PP with Connor
9 months pregnant with Liam
The rest are me 2.5 months PP after both boys

    Your first post made me cry. You are such a strong woman and I can’t even imagine going through what you have. Your boys are both beautiful and lucky to have such an amazing mommy. I want you to know, you have inspired me. I want to do something to help babies with those sorts of problems.

    Michelle…thank you. Connor inspired me too. I actually started taking classes for nursing when Connor was about 15 months. I had to drop out because my finals were the day Connor passed away. It has taken me a bit to be ready to go back, but I am starting again in the Spring. It is my goal to work at Children’s Hospital Boston…where Connor spent so much time. He is an amazing baby boy!

    You have put me to shame with your story. Here I am worrying about a bit of excess weight and there you are displaying such courage, humour and love for yourself and your babies. I am inspired by you. Thank you.

    I have been reading stories on this website for months now (I am 10 weeks PP) and I have never commented until now. I started crying reading your post. I feel awful that I am sitting here with a healthy child complaining about weight while reading your story. You are a strong and beautiful person. I am so very sorry for your loss. I thank you for sharing, you are an inspiration to me and many. God bless you and your family.
