my son was born at 7 lbs 9 oz on may 4th, 2007 and after a looooooong 9 months, every minute was worth it :) before getting pregnant i weighed about 125 lbs at 5 foot 5. during my pregnancy, i got up ti 169 lbs and now weigh about 152 lbs. im hoping to get back to my pre-preggo weight but im not holding my breath. there are many aspect of my body i dont like anymore (most of them) but before my little one, i had no hips, which i do now. as much as everything sags and jiggles when i walk naked, its still all worth it. we created a life!! what an amazing feeling. before pregnancy i was comfortable with my body after being with my boyfriend for 2 yrs and i knew i was beautiful to him and thats all that mattered. i even showed it off every now and then! im sure it will be a long time before i ever let anyone besides myself or my boyfriend see my body but im ok with that. 8 wks after his birth, im just enjoying him and havent done much as far as exercise yet. i still dont have my energy back because i hemmoraged after delivering him and lost a lot of blood. the pics ive included are of me at 24 weeks pregnant, 30 weeks pregnant, and just shy of 38 wks pregnant. the next 3 are my body 8 wks post partum (stretch marks and all, which i didnt get until about 35-36 wks preggo) and then my gorgeous little man, owen douglas at 8 wks old. glad to know im not the only one with a post baby belly that has become more of a jelly belly !
