6 Months Postpartum, 2 Kids 15 Months Apart

October 7, 2008

I am a 24 year old mother of two gorgeous little boys. I had my first son in December 2006. He is now 21 months old. A short 7 1/2 months later I got the surprise of a life time and found out that I was pregnant again. My youngest son is now 6 months old.
I am lucky that after both pregnancies I lost the weight very quickly. I gained 34 pounds the first time and 28 pounds the second. I am now covered in stretch marks, have fat where there used to be none, I have some lovely cellulite on the back of my thighs and pancakes for boobs after nursing two babies. (I’m still nursing the youngest.)Although at times I am insecure about my new body, I love it more than I ever have. It, with a little help from my husband, gave me two perfect little boys. How could I not love it?

    you look pretty good for having two babies back to back. If you look this good six months after, you’ll look fabulous in a year or so! congratulations on your two boys!

    You’re gorgeous! And lucky–with two babies so close together, you won’t go through (seemingly) endless years of diapers, wipes, pacifiers, etc. It will go quickly, so cherish every moment.

    I’ve been reading through this site for a few months now, but have never commented. I’m a single female – no kids, and not even a potential partner in site!

    However, I must say…you ladies look amazing. Incredible. And most women – moms or not – would happily trade!

    And I can never get over how amazing it is that a *human being* lived there for 9 months! For all those ladies who write that they dread looking into the mirror each day: a *new human life* LIVED in there for 9 months! Do you realize how incredibly amazing that is?! I’m absolutely awe-struck.
