3 Months After 3rd Child (Kristin)

September 12, 2011

Previous entries here, here and here.

I have posted here after i had my first child and again after my second. I have since then had another baby. I am going to be 24 in a few months, My first is my son who is 3.5 years old now, My daughter is 2 years old and my youngest is also a girl who is 3 months old. I usually start my weight around 105-115lbs, and by the time i deliver i am around 138-140lbs. My 3rd child was born in April weighing 8lbs 5oz’s, she was heavier then my first daughter who was 7lbs 15ozs, but ligher then my son who was 8lbs 9ozs. My weight right now at 3 months postpartum is 115lbs(i’m 5foot4), which i am happy with on most days, my goal weight is anywhere between 110-115lbs.. Things have been good here, I have my days where i am depressed about my body but i try not to let it get me down, tho it can be hard on some days. I have to contunie telling myself that i look good after having 3 kids, some days i believe it, other days i dont. My husband is always saying i am beautiful and sexy, thats all i should care about, as long as he finds me sexy that should be good enough right? but i cant help how i feel some days. I am getting better i think on my body image but i still have hard days, but i need to get over it, i have 3 beautiful kids and a loving husband. And i need to raise my girls to love themselfs no matter what, and for my son to know this is how mommies look..they may have marks but they are beautiful:)

All you ladies are beautiful, i wish one day we would all feel it. Thanks again Bonnie

    Are you kidding me?!?!?! You look so amazing! You and your family are beautiful. Oh, I loved your pregnant belly as well, it looks adorable! Your husband is a smart man to still find you sexy/beautiful.

    I am not sure where Robert is going here…but there is no reason that your husband would not still find you sexy. You are beautiful. Is your body slightly different than it was before children? Yes…but you gave him 3 children. I do not believe that all guys are immature jerks like Robert is insinuating…maybe that is how he is.

    Hey I’m just wondering why you allowed Robert to post such neg things? This is directed to Bonnie? I thought you didn’t put up a post that was so neg on this site? Very disappointed that such a neg thing was allowed to be posted on this size :( …. Wow. That’s all I can say… And to Robert stay off the site if your just gonna be mean!!!!

    Why is the comment from Robert even posted seeing how rude he is being. I think it needs to be tooken down. I thought rude comments were not posted. This comment is just rude and he needs to not post anything if he is going to be rude like that. Its needs to be tooken down.
    BONNIE please remove this comment, it should not be aloud to be posted.

    Wow, I’m surprised you guys read his comment so differently than I did. I posted his comment after consideration because I felt it to be supportive, even if he didn’t use flowery language. I didn’t feel he was saying anything negative about Kristin, but was asking her to look inside herself to find her own Truth. Never did he call her ugly, never did he say her husband did not find her sexy. I felt he was saying what we often say to the women here, although with stronger language – but strong language is comfortable to me so maybe I did not see the things you guys did for that reason.

    In any case, I am very, very sorry. I will remove his comment right away. I hope you understand now that I posted it because I took his words to mean something different than you all did and, again, I am so very sorry for that and for the hurt it caused you. I never, ever want that for my mamas here. Kirstin I will email you this to make sure you see my response.

    It’s so interesting how we can all interpret a comment differently. I feel a bit safer with that comment removed.

    I actually didn’t think Robert was being mean though…it just seemed that he addressed some issues that Kristin, the poster, never said were a problem (giving her marital advice based upon an assumption that her husband was watching porn and too immature to love her body…when she specifically said that her husband is VERY supportive of her). And I just thought that was out of place and wasn’t addressing Kristin’s points in her post…and therefore I didn’t think it was supportive.

    But Bonnie I don’t blame you one bit for allowing the comment to be posted and then allowing your readers to police it ourselves. I understand how you interpreted the comment and why you posted it originally.

    Our two older children are snowy the same age and I’m jealous. I’m expecting our 4th in 4 months and would love to look like you afterward. Good work Mom! Don’t worry about what the world thinks. You worked hard for your body. Show it off!
