I found out I was pregnant with twins at 9 weeks. I found this website while I was still pregnant, and the stories helped me so much. I don’t know why I’ve waited so long to submit some pictures! I am currently 7 months post partum, and my body has underwent some MAJOR changes. I started out weighing about 130lb’s at 5’5…now I am closer to 165! I’ve been watching what I eat and trying to stay active,but the extra weight is just not coming off as fast as i’d like. The first couple of months post partum were bad (as far as being self-conscience). My babies are truely the lights of my life…one boy and one girl… I love them with all of my heart! My body, on the other hand, isn’t my favorite thing right now, but they are more than worth it. I would go through the whole thing 1,000 times over for them. I remember crying when I got my first streatch mark at about 7 months, and they got worse from there. I have to say I’m proud of my body for going full term with them. They weighed right at 6 pounds each. I have thought about getting a tummy tuck, but only after I get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I think that flap of skin hanging down is permanet. Here are some pics of how my tummy looks right now, and one of my beautiful babies at 6 months!
