Mother of Two Baby Boys (Anonymous)

November 11, 2009

Age: 24
Two Pregnancys/ Two Births.
Children Ages: 2 1/2 & 10 weeks.

I find it pretty hard being 24 and dealing with friends and their perfect bodys in bikinis..their perky boobs, and flat stomachs, lack of stretch marks. My husband says I look great in my body now, but when your not used to something its hard to deal with. Even after 2 1/2 years. With my first son, i gained way too much weight. 53 lbs to be exact. Bringing my 110 lb body up to 163..giving me stretch marks and saggy skin. After an enormous weight battle and approximately 1 year ..I was actually smaller than I was before getting pregnant. But, my body was changed..my boobs sag..my nipples are bigger..i still have the stretch marks..but the worst is the saggy skin/ better known as the muffin top. No clothes seem to complement my body. Its now 11 weeks after my second child. I did well this pregnancy only gaining 23 lbs and i have 5 lbs left to loose to get back to my weight agian..I am starting to accept my post baby body and even wore a bikini to the beach last month. If you dont like it..you dont have to look at it. … Im not always okay with my body in public, but I am trying.

    Agreed, you do look amazing. I am sooo jealous of that butt! Muffin tops? When I think muffin tops you are not anywhere near what I picture. Seriously you look great!

    I was almost 20 when I had my son, went from 113 to 201(after) I had him due to severe toxemia. Even a year later when I lost the weight my skin just sucked. But 5 years later I changed my diet and eat fresh foods rather than processed and I look better than I did at 18. You need TIME. You can’t make your skin shape up that fast. It will happen, just don’t dwell on it.

    Wow – people on here talk about finding their ‘body double’ – well, you are mine! I’m 12 weeks pp and your butt and belly look just like mine! I have stretch marks just like the ones on your belly, too. I’m 22, so I completely understand what it’s like to be in a peer group that is still flat-bellied and perky-boobed. It’s down right depressing. I don’t know about you, but my breasts are 90% covered in stretch marks. I don’t feel like I’ll ever get used to it, so I’m kicking my butt in the gym to get it all back in shape.

    You look a lot like me, but better. We’re lucky we have such supportive husbands. I wish I had an answer to the muffin top. I can get in my prepreg pants, but they fit me funny. You look awesome though!
