OMG!!! you look so good. your belly is beautiful. it WILL only get better. I love the way you have taken the pictures monthly. Don’t be so hard on yourself! Good luck..
I am 23 weeks pregnant with fraternal girls and thats how I came across your website.I really admire you for your courage to post pictures of the body that you dont like and your courage to be a single mother.
I think that you look beautiful and every picture that you posted is a proof of your hard work.
Although it is true that some men( and some women too) are superficial people and will only be interested in you if you have a perfect body without a single wrinkle or a stretchmark or a an oz of extra weight. Some of them will only find you worthwhile if you look a certain way, but I think if someone really cares about you and admires who you are, they will love your body too the way it is with every stretchmark and every hair and every wrinkle. Are those superficial people really worth your time?
I think you are a beautiful woman and you will have whatever you want in life with your hard work and dedication!
PS I am only 23 weeks and I already gained 30lbs, I wonder what my tummy is going to look like in some months from now.
Hello there. I feel so happy for you. You gave birth to twins and walked away with such a slender beautiful figure. You also became a stronger – physically and mentally – woman and mother. Yes, you may think you are less beautiful… or used goods, but anyone else reading your story or seeing your pictures only see a beautiful young mother whose body looks great after giving birth. Honestly, the women who dont get stretch marks have it incredibly easy in the body department since their skin just *snaps* back, but for us women who did get them, looking as good as you are takes a whole lot longer! Honestly, you looks WONDERFUL. I too have a darker skin tone and my tummy looked a bit darker like yours after having my son. My son is now 2 and my stomach has pretty much faded to become the complexion of my other skin with the stretch marks still pretty visible BUT it looks so much better than it did at 7 months pp… SO MUCH better. You are beautiful – period! I see strength and power in your body. You should be proud. Hope one day you will be. Lots of hugs to you.
Hey Khanna. The way your belly button looks reminds me of mine. Except I have a lot of loose skin still. All I want is it to flatten out like yours. I can deal with stretch marks and discoloration but I just want my tummy to flatten out. Have you been doing anything extra to where you are now?
@Sabrina..I have just been working out using p90x, I was hoping this would hepl me tighten the tummy more, I definatly see results but only in my fourth week. Try it it may work for you, it works for most ppl.
@Everyone. Thanks for the kind words and encouragement I’ve had my ups and downs and still struggle with my body image but I come back and re-read your comments and i feel better. Every time I feel down, I come back and re-read and I feel better all over again.
You Look Amazing!!!!!
What did your belly look like during pregnancy. My stomach looked a lot like you’re before but my entire stomach is black now and my belly button is extremely stretched out. I think it might look like yours after pregnancy. I’d be happy if my stomach looked like yours after
