Becoming a Young Mummy (Anonymous)

September 3, 2012

Becoming a young Mummy.
Annonymous.
age: 16
number of children: 1
age of child; 6 weeks old.

first of all i was soo happy when i found this site. it gave me light that im not the only girl with a body like i have. im thankful and i walk around with my head held high now.

Having a baby at a young age is real rough. im lucky though i was fully supported through my whole pregnancy right through to labour. My parents were both dissapointed my dad to this day is still getting over it. My mum was sad she cried, we both did but she ensured me that she would be there for me. Im strong minded and i made the desicion to carry on with life as usual. i carried on with my schooling right until i gave birth to our beautiful baby girl. Without the support of my friends and family i wouldnt be in the posotion i am now. they all gave me strong words of advice and loving comments. i never felt put down unless i put myself down. my boyfriend was amazing aswell and his family. At her birth my our familys were there and our closest friends. at first i ddint think how my body would change. but boy has it changed alright. My belly is saggy and has heaps of stretch marks all over it. but i look down at my belly and say i went through a lot of shit for these and every single one of them represent a tad bit of what i would do for our baby girl.

    Your story is similar to mine. I was 16 when I discovered I was pregnant, and 17 when my son was born. There was certainly a lot of shock, sadness and disappointment in sharing our unexpected news. However, everyone got over it quickly and his daddy, as well as both our families and a handful of good friends made life a lot easier for such young parents.

    I commend you for continuing your education, and encourage you to press forward, always, if not just for yourself, then for your daughter too. I finished my senior year with honors, and went on to graduate from university a semester ahead of my classmates.

    My son is almost 7 now, and while my body is still different than it was 7 years ago and I am still insecure with my stomach, in particular, our life together is just heavenly, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

    Good luck, mama!

    you look beautiful! and more importantly you seem to have a good head on your shoulders and seem very intelligent and mature. It is sad that our culture values external beauty over what is much more important our personalities! and our spirit which last forever! I could never imagine being a shallow person marrying someone for their looks, because when we get old we all get grey and wrinkled. I am 26 and 3 months pregnant with my first baby. I plan to post some pics and a story once I am further along. My mother got a lot of stretch marks through pregnancy, and I also got a lot on my breasts since being pregnant and going through puberty. So I already know I am one of the lucky ones with that type of skin that will not stretch as beautifully as some of those woman we love to hate! It does not seem fair! especially because I had acne too! but I thank the Creator for my baby and my good health and my wonderful brain and beautiful face! I am happy your boyfriend loves you and is supportive. As woman we sacrifice our beautiful temples to bring life into the world and the marks that changed us make us more beautiful than we were ever before and more people need to acknowledge that! I am single but I am okay with my changing body because I plan to find true love one day, and the man I find will love me for who I am and what I have been through not the way my body looks. Good luck on your amazing journey through motherhood!
