2nd Time Mom

March 6, 2007

All my life all I ever wanted was to be a mom. My first babysitting job was when I was 12, a six month old girl. I watched her til she was 2yrs.

At 16 i became pregnant with my now 3 year old daughter, whom i love very much. And my body was never the same. I was once a 5ft9 120lb beautiful woman, who turned into a 180lb person i never seemed to know. I was ashamed of my body, but never had enough motivation to change it. I never wore shorts and felt horrible i couldnt take my daughter to the playground on 80degree days.

Now at 20 and pregnant with my second body ive come to terms with the hand i was dealt. I know weigh 214lbs gaining just 14 of of that during my so far 35 week pregnancy. I plan on working hard to be able to feel comfortable this year and to be able to enjoy a long life with my daughters.. Here are 2 pictures of me at 35 weeks pregnant. I plan on posting my ‘pregnancy honor-stripes’ and my post pregnancy self later. Thank you for looking :)
