I am 33 years old, these pictures are taken 5 years post-partum. I’ve had 2 pregnancies (first one at 13), and given birth once. My body has changed. My butt has flattned, my waist windned. Due to a number of reasons, my weight has fluctuated greatly. From 170 at pre-pregnacny, to 163 one month post partum. 204 at my highest depression (and 6 months sober), to now, 184lbs. I’m 5’5″ and have never admitted that publiclly. Other than my daughter, I’ve not allowed anyone to see me naked, for I am so ashamed. My waist is huge, my breasts saggy, my bum flat, and stretch marks. I love my daughter, and slowly loving my body, as I have to accept that *this* is it (well, that and excercise, however there will be no more bubble butt).

    You really are gorgeous! I like that you took a picture with your face, what a beautiful smile. I think we are talking about different women here, I dont see a saggy breasted, big waisted, flat butted woman! You have fabulous curves and you totally still have a bubble butt! :D

    I’m really surprised that you state that you are “so ashamed” because from the pictures, I was realy getting a “sexy and confidant and proud of my body!” vibe! I say you try to work toward changing your attitude and not your body. You really are a sexy woman with sexy curves. I love that first picture with your smile and your hips and your attitude! It’s hot! :D

    Congrats on the 6 months sober;-) I am proud of you for sharing your story. I can relate to you not allowing anyone to see you naked, my wife will not even let me see her naked and she is a beautiful mother of four kids. If there is one thing I can say to you and all the other women on here is that you all are beautiful stretch marks, extra pounds what ever you think is a flaw. I think my wife is as beautiful as she was before birth and if anything I find her to be more sexy because of what has made her body. So embrace your beauty because you are very beatiful!

    Aside from the fact that you look completely normal and beautiful, I have made an observation. You had your first baby at 13. I had my first at 18. It appears from this site, that women who have babies in their teens experience more body changes. I wonder if that is true or if it has to do with puberty. I also notice that women who experienced pregnancy in their teen years have no idea what their “normal” body would have looked like. I am not judging, just observing. I love your smile!
