Age 39 and Pregnant with baby 5!!! (Anonymous)

March 15, 2007

We just found out that we are expecting a baby in October.This will be my husbands first baby!! My daughter will be 22, my twin sons 16 and my little guy will be almost 5. The toll that each pregnancy takes on my body is monumental! But, the knowledge that I have the ability to grow, nurture and feed such amazing children is a true miracle. I look at all of the scars and stretch marks that mark my belly and think of them badges of courage.

    I got pregnant at 37 with my 4th baby and my (new)husband’s first. It was a totally awesome experience to watch him through it all. I had 3 from my first marriage and I was sure I was done, but God had other plans…he gave me another one 14 months later and then I took matters into my own hands and got my tubes tied. I also tip my hat to those of you who took pictures of your wonderful, useful, miraculous bodies and posted them!

    I was going to ask the same thing… boob job, and tummy tuck? If you did, the scars look GREAT. I will also be looking into these procedures when I am done nursing my little guy.

    Your breasts look great! I’ve been wondering how the skin on the stomach holds up when a woman has a baby after already having a tummy tuck. I am thinking of doing that too. Please let us know!

    I’ve had a tummy tuck/ implants so it’s nice to see an entry with similar scars to mine. I didnt want to post my pictures because, unlike most women here, I didnt embrace my stretch marks, loose skin and saggy boobs. I was just so miserable in my skin. I still have some stretch marks but grew to love those. Your body looks great! And to answer the question above- the skin can still become loose and get new stretch marks. If you have muscle repair, it can be uncomfortable as you stretch the muscles out but usually it will hold up better than before, but that’s not 100% so most drs want you to be done with having children before getting this done. It always depends on genetics, weight gain, baby size, etc though. It’s an expensive (and painful) procedure so it’s best to wait until you’ve had all your kiddos, but if a surprise happens, your body will manage just fine.

    I had a tummy tuck, breast lift and augmentation AND THEN got pregnant with TWINS. Pretty smart . huh? Anyway, I didn’t get any new stretchmarks and can’t believe how firm my stomach still is. I’ve gained WAY too much weight. Need to lose about 50 lbs. and can’t believe that my tummy is still flat but my boobs are ENORMOUS! My hubby likes the boobs, but not the rest so much. Once I get familiar w/this site, I’ll post a prego pic of me with the twins.

    I have been doing lots of research on woman with tummy tucks and wanting to have another child. I already have two wonderful boys from a previous marriage. My husband now has no children, and I see how wonderful he is with my own. I would love to have a baby with him. I have had my tummy tuck 6 years ago, just wandering how your pregnancy experience is going. please let me know, and Congratulations!

    Hi, I also had a tummy tuck and lipo. loved it with all my heart, but I decided that I wanted more kids and now I am pregnant with my third and about 22 weeks along, so far haven’t seen any change, but I get a little worried if baby will be able to grow normally! How are you doing???? please tell me! thanks!
