First Baby and an Out of Body Experience (Anonymous)

This is me 5 months after my baby boy was born. I just do not look the same at all . My breast use to be perky and my stomach was less flabby before. Yet, at the end of the day when I look at my body I know its truly a blessing because I wouldn’t trade him for anything. He is so inspiring. Watching him grow every day is amazing. I love this site and how there are many other women out there that have been and are still going through the body changes. The shape of a mother is a beautiful thing and we need to embrace our new selves and no focus on what society tags as beautiful.

    :-) Yes what society tags as beauty is not real beauty. Enjoy being a mother. Your children are more precious than perky breasts or anything like that.
    Theres nothing wrong with looking like a women and not a peice of plastic.

    Im about 8 months right now and have already gained 30+ pounds! i seemed to have gained it everywhere but most noticebly to myself are my thighs. i will be posting pics soon. i think you look amazing and just want to say a big BRAVO to you. this website has been the most comforting thing in the world to me at times when i feel as though i look disgusting. you are sooo right, babies are the only pure joy in this world and if it f*cks our bodies a bit, so be it, totally worth it. i hope to look and feel as wonderful as you do in a few weeks when my little bit gets here. congrats!! way to go mommas!!
