My body as a mother and mother-to-be (Anonymous)

I wish to remain anonymous, but I felt inspired to contribute.

These pictures I am submitting are of me at 25 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child.
The stretch marks are from my first pregnancy.

I had a c-section, so the skin is still saggy where my scar is.

I lost about 50 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight after my first child was born, then got pregnant again when my first child was 13 months old.

Depsite all my stretch marks and sagging skin, I still love my pregnant body. I realize that it’s in the process of creating a miracle. And even after the baby is here, the marks on my body will be a reminder of the two miracles that I have created. My body is that of a mother. And for that, it is beautiful.

    i have strecht marks and saggy skin i had triplets and im wondering how do you deal with that because dont get me wrong i love my triplets but my stomach i hate it because it is never going to be the same and it makes me really sad. I ask myself how can kate have a great stomach after having six kids:(

    I am 18 weeks pregnant after a ceasarean and loosing 42lbs from pre-pregnancy weight. I look exactly the same, just with a slightly smaller bump! I like to think of stretch marks as baby lines.

    Kate looks great because she has money for plastic surgery. Never compare yourself to someone in the magazines or on the tv. You’ll only make yourself feel bad when you should be proud of all the work you do without the celeb status or the perks they’re all handed.
