My body before, during, and after. (Lindsie)

April 17, 2013

I found out I was pregnant when I was 18 and wore a size 12-14 in jeans. My whole pregnancy was easy no morning sickness, no stretch marks. Nothing. Until the last month then my stretch marks came.I had my little boy all 8lbs 2oz and 22 1/2 in of him naturally. The day after I had him I thought to myself I look great! This getting back to pre pregnancy size will be easy! As the months went on I realized its not that easy. I gained almost 80lbs while I was pregnant. So far I’ve lost about 40lbs of it. I look at myself in the mirror and no I don’t look perfect, no I don’t particularly like my stretchmarks and my baby belly. But then I look at my beautiful little boy and its all worth it. Every mark, every pound, every change in my body, everything. My son is now 6 months old, I wear a size 16 jeans, and no I don’t look perfect but I am an awesome mom and thats all that matters :) The first picture is at 34 weeks pregnant, the second is my little boy and the last few are my body 6 months after giving birth.

    Your little boy is so adorable! You should be proud of what you did, and of being a great mom. You have a good attitude. It’s easier to lose the weight if you have a good attitude and try to love and accept yourself. It can be a slow process but if you keep working at it you will get there!

    Girl I also got pregnant at eighteen, I gained about forty lbs, and the result was a 21″, 8 lbs 14 oz of baby boy that took my vagina on the way out lmao. I look like you but with much more stretch marks that after three years still look red and wide. You’re beautiful on the inside and outside hun. Beautiful baby boy!

    You have a great attitude! Your little son is positively glowing in that picture. Give your body and yourself time. You said you lost forty pounds of the baby weight, and that you have forty to go now that your son is six months old. It takes the body a while to bounce all the way back from pregnancy. I think you’re doing great.
