Mother of a Princess (MommaMykah)

Mother of a Princess

I’m 27 years old and a proud mother of an eight month old princess. She is my first and only child.

I’ve never been self-conscious about by body (in fact I loved my body) until after I had my baby and my breast went from pointy and perky to sagging and looking at the ground. My once flat tummy is now a flabby tummy, that I can work on but the breast are really making me depressed.

I was searching around on breast sites looking for company in my pity party and I came across this website. No one tells you that when you become a mommy you would never look the same again. All the celebrity images we are bombarded with make us feel like we are not beautiful anymore, well that’s how I felt anyway. But this website a shape of a mother got me thinking, that I am normal and my breast are normal for a mother and I am beautiful. I have read other mom’s stories and it has given me such strength and courage to love my body once again. Though I am not back at the mirror viewing stage, I am learning little by little to accept my sagging breasts, for I have breast fed my baby to a healthy weight, and I am learning to love my stretch marks for they are battle scars for borning a princess and my flabby tummy for it held my Princess close to me as she grew.

Thank you to all of the posts they have given me the boost I needed to love myself again, breast included :) .

Below are pictures of my body before my princess and 8 months after my princess. See her attached too.

    you look great! I wish I had no stretch marks. You don’t look like you have much at all! Wish I looked like you.. Nothing a few situps a day couldn’t tighten.. My body is ‘ruined’ for life!

    You look beautiful! And I know what you mean, I looked for a pity party, but came out with higher self esteem than before I had my daughter! I love this site!

    OMG! Your baby is so adorable!! You have a great figure and looks like you have great legs, I’m jealous! I have similar boobs, so I know how you feel. Mine looked just like yours when I was in my teens. I got implants to plump them up and now they are silly-big and numb and ultimately migrated south again. I wish I could go back in time and tell myself to leave my then perfectly good boobs alone!

    I totally agree with you about the magazines. I don’t buy any of them anymore, as I too feel they give out a very unhealthy message. Full of plastic, shallow people.
    I think you look good !!! I think your tummy is curvy, and femanine, but not flabby. But if you want it flat, pilates is great for that!
    And your daughter is so cute!!

    You look normal (and good) to me :)
    How can I be the only woman who does NOT use celebrities to gauge how I should look? While no one came out and said it directly that my body will change, I just assumed it would–how could it not–and all women around me were evidence; esp. at the pool changing room. I’m so surprised how often i hear women being surprised that their body’s changed, or that they didn’t look ‘normal’ right after birth. I hope this site is really making changes in the American subconscious!

    Like you and “h”, I don’t buy those magazines anymore either. I think it’s a wise decision. :) You look fabulous, and your daughter is so freaking cute!

    You’re a hot looking mum, most celebrity pictures in those magazines are fake anyway, they photo shop them to alien perfection.

    I think your breasts look great. Natural beauty can’t be duplicated with plastic surgery.
