I am a 25 year old mother of two. My son is 3 and my daughter is 1. Prior to the birth of my son I weighed 115 pounds. I had it in my head that my belly would grow into a perfect basketball shape and that right after birth my tummy would flatten back out. Haha…I was rudely awakened. My 115 pounds eventually grew into 215 pounds by my 9th month of pregnancy. My body had changed in ways I had never imagined. My face, finger & toes, my back, my breasts…Stretch marks covered my body. Legs, arms, belly… My 9 pound 5 ounce baby boy was born via emergency c-section. I had a very hard time accepting my “new” body. It took me about 2 years after the birth of my son to be able to look at myself naked or to touch my scar. I had only lost about 25 pounds by the time I was pregnant with our daughter. I went into this pregnancy overweight. I had no idea what my body would do this time…Our 9 pound 15 ounce daughter was welcomed into the world via c-section. My body didn’t change too much that time. My breasts now hang even lower, as does my belly. I have now come to accept my loose skin, scars and marks. I would not trade them for anything. For without them, I would not be a mommy to the loves of my life….
