27 weeks pregnant (Justine)

October 21, 2009

My body has been though alot in this past year, Dec 19th 2008 i found out i was pregnant i started to gain weight right away and knew it something wasnt right i wasnt suppost to have a gut at a month and a half!!, at 6 weeks i went in and there were 2 tiny little heartbeats on the screen, we were having twins!! we were so excited but 4 weeks later i had heavy bleeding and clotting and miscarried the babies, after i lost the twins the weight i put on just never went away, Charlie took it really hard and said he didnt want to try for any more kids for a few more years, i went back on my nuvaring and we started used spermicide to prevent another pregnancy, but April of 2009 i my period didnt come, and took a test and it came up saying “pregnant” i couldnt believe it to be honest,It wasnt the right time, it was right before charlie deployed and we honestly were at the verge of calling it quits, My (ex)husband Charlie wanted me to have a abortion and since i wouldnt we have decided to get divorced and are now legally seperated and the divorce will be final in november, he wants nothing to do with his daughter. But back to this pregnancy, I had severe hyperemesis for the first 5 months of my pregnancy i was admitted 4 times, had over 40 IVs in, at my worst i was down 27 lbs from my prepregnancy weight, i was taking about 15 pills a day just to be able to fuction. But at 23 weeks along the hyperemesis just went away, and i have gained 20 lbs since, (still down 7 from pregnancy weight) but my daughter is a healthy baby girl and is due december 19th, which is the one year mark from when i found out i was pregnant with her siblings, its pretty bittersweet that her due date marks that day. i have 2 light purple stretch marks and my timer has popped, my breasts went from a 32DD to now a 32G so i think about 5 lbs of my weight gain is in my boobs,they have gotten quiet saggy since i found out i was pregnant i was scheuduled to get a breast reduction in june and that is on standby until i stop breastfeeding, but it will still be done!

~Your Age: 19
~Number of pregnancies and births: 2nd pregnancy, 2 angel babies and 1 still in the womb

on my photos first one is prepregnancy, second is 21 weeks suffering from hyperemesis, 3rd and 4th are at 27 weeks pregnant.

    You are doing the right thing, he doesn’t deserve you or your daughter. You look wonderful and I can sympithize with the breast issues. I started a 32F and hit 34H while breastfeeding. The good news is I came back down to a 32FF and hope to have a reduction when I am finished having babies and breastfeeding.

    I too am debating a breast reduction. Do you have any updated pics? Pics since you’ve begun breastfeeding? I’d love to compare your before pics to mine.

    Sorry to hear about you and your ex. Wish he had the strength and courage that you (and all moms) have. I agree with Anna, you look great. Hang in there. Keep those that support you close. You are nearing the end of one adventure to start another…

    Looking forward in hearing from you after the new year!!!

    Oh, my goodness. Honey you are strong like I can’t even BELIEVE. I hope someday when your daughter is all grown up she understands how hard you fought for her and what you went through. You are awesome, you look amazing, and I wish you all the best.

    You look fantastic! I am very sorry that her father has made such a choice, but with time, he might realize what a mistake that is! Best of Luck!

    I’m so sorry to hear of the loss of your babies. With no personal experience to draw from, I can only imagine how much you grieve. Your ex is also grieving. His reaction to your current pregnancy, while hurtful & confusing, is normal. He’s afraid to get attached to another child only to lose her. Be brave, treat yourself well, love yourself & your little girl. Congratulations on all of your blessings. You’re a beautiful & remarkable woman.

    You are doing the right thing. God obviously wanted you to have a baby if you took double the precautions and still ended up pregnant. Enjoy your little baby. Keep on doing right and being strong!

    You look great!! Your ex doesn’t deserve you or your daughter, I hope it all works out for you. I too want a reduction, pre pregnancy I was a 34F and during breastfeeding I got to a 34J!! It’s nice to know your not alone :) I am now back down to a 34GG (13 months PP). I am going to wait till I finish having children before getting one, but I cant wait!! Goodluck :)

    You look AMAZING. I’m 30 weeks pregnant right now, and we look about the same, similar body shapes. I also started out Prepreg. at a 34DD and I’m currently in a 36G , and they don’t seem to be slowing down. I spent alot of my pregnancy thus far being really worried about stretchmarks and saggy boobs, but now, whenever i feel my little boy move his little head sticking out of my tummy, i would give all the stretch marks in the world to make sure he came out healthy. It’s too bad about your husband, i hope everything works out, and if not, you’re a gorgeous girl and you and your daughter are going to find a great man to care for you :-) i know it.
