i have a 2 year old son and have struggled over my post pregnancy body for those last 2 years. i was 18 when my son was born at only 28weeks and spent 96 days in the NICU, this as you can no doubt imagine was a very stressfull time for me (i add that i am a single mother and my sons father wanted nothing to do with him) my family was supportive but they really didnt know what i went through everyday. i got quite depressed and ended up hating myself for not being able carry my baby to full term and for all the pain and suffering i had caused him. both myself and my son have come a long way in the last 2 years, he is now a happy (almost) healthy 2 year old with just a few lung and developmental problems and i at almost 21 years old am starting to accept and like my body, having realised that i will never be a tiny skinny person. i thank this website a lot for making me realise im just the same as any other mother out there. yes i may not have the perfect body, but i got a perfect son out of it. thank you for helping me grow to like my body.
