Mommy to a Princess (Amanda)

June 22, 2009

Age: 20
First baby
19 months pp

Hello :)
First, I wanted to say that I love this website. I think all of the mama’s on this website are absolutely beautiful!

Well, I started out at 5’1 and 110 lbs. I was only 17 years old when I became pregnant. I was scared to death but I thank god everyday that I have a beautiful little girl who absolutely adores me! Her daddy stood by me through everything, I couldn’t ask to have a better guy! I loved being pregnant, until week 26 when I was put on bed rest for the remainder of my pregnancy. I gained 40 lbs while pregnant getting me up to 150 on the day I gave birth. I didn’t get any stretch marks until week 38. I remember putting a mirror underneath my HUGE belly & seeing all of the bright red stretch marks! Considering I put special lotion on my belly 3 times a day to prevent them, I was horrified.
On October 25, 2007 my beautiful little girl entered the world weighing 7lbs even. During the first 3 months I tried to ignore the fact that I was 130 lbs. I soon started to go on the treadmill every single day & by 6 months pp I was back down to my pre-pregnancy weight. My stretch marks faded completly but I still wasn’t happy with my weight. By 9 months pp I got myself down to 87lbs at 5’1! I admit, I ate nothing and excercised much more than I probably should have, but I liked the way I looked. By my daughters first birthday I started to gain a little bit of weight back and by 15 months pp I was back up to 110 lbs! I have been eating healthy this time and walking every day with my daughter. I am now at 100 lbs and completely happy with myself.
I love spending every single second of my life with my daughter. She puts a permanent smile on my face! I would do it all over again in a heartbeat :)
