When I first got pregnant, I wasn’t the happiest with my weight, but I immediately relaxed about the whole thing and felt pretty good through the first six months. This was at 6 weeks.

I gained over 60 pounds by the time I gave birth to my 9 pounder, at 41 plus weeks. This was the last picture I took pregnant, other than some nude shots of me laboring that I’m sure as hell not sharing.

Now, it’s 6 months later and I sometimes feel good, sometimes bad…But mostly I am glad that my FACE is at least back to pre-preg shape!

If not for the stretchmarks, I could confuse this with pics of me 12 weeks pregnant.

Thanks for doing this!

    You look great! Your skin tone still looks good! Lucky!

    I have pictures of myself proudly showing off my belly at 6 weeks during my first pregnancy. What I would do for that belly 8 years after having twins! I look positively trim, and so do you :)
