I am 24 years old. I have 2 beautiful children, that left me with a not so beautiful body. My daughter will be 2 in 8/06 and my son was born 3/06. So 2 children in under 2 years, gave me not much time to “snap back” in between. After looking at this site, I really don’t feel as badly about my body and I once did. My pregnancy with my daughter I didn’t get many stretch marks, my son was another story though. My daughter graced us with her presence after 41 weeks of pregnancy, my son had to be helped into this world, I was induced for him at 42 weeks pregnant. With my daughter I gained within the recommended weight range and dropped 15lbs of that just by giving birth. With my son I was up to 206lbs, 4 days before delivery. I was so embarrassed of “gaining too much” and “being too big” that I do not have any pictures of me pregnant with my son. I regret that and probably will for a very long time.

Here I am at 26 weeks my 1st pregnancy…This is my favorite belly picture…just the beginning of a little bump.
