Number of births and pregnancies: 1 birth and pregnancy
4 months postpartum
My name is Brittany. I am a proud mother to a 4 month old little girl and wife to a wonderful and patient husband. I have been struggling to accept the way my new body looks since I was pregnant. I was a slim 135 pounds before the pregnancy and an avid runner. However I gained a whopping 70 pounds and have buried myself in a hole of self-pity since delivery (partially to due to postpartum depression as well). I have stretch marks on my breasts, belly, bum and legs. It had gotten so bad at one point that I couldn’t even watch TV without breaking into tears over a sexy woman on a commercial or show. I am really glad I found this website. It is good to know that I am not the only one who has to overcome issues with her postpartum body.
