PP Belly 5 Mo After twins (Anonymous)

August 26, 2008

I am a 23 yr old new mum of twins. I carried my kiddos to 36 weeks and delivered 6.8. baby girl and 5.9 baby boy. I went from 158 lbs to 222 lbs on D day. I had a vertical cut C section and spent 2 days in the hospital. Accepting my new body is still something I am dealing with because I often compare myself to other women my age. I keep trying to remember that I don’t lead the average life of a 23 yr old. I am married and have been for 3 years and my pregnancy was very much planned. I thought I might have had a little bit better after body but I am still working. I am not going to lie, I envy stars like J-LO and Julia Roberts who seem to be able to display top notch bodies after twins. But I still think I did something kind of amazing …growing two humans and all.

    You look great and will look better and better as time goes by. I had twins with similar weights, I got huge and developed tons of stretchmarks. I lost all the baby weight but my skin couldn’t shrink. Your skin looks nice and elastic to me, so it will shrink as the belly gets smaller.
    Congrats on your twins!

    Wow, you give me hope. I am also 23 years old and am 30 weeks pregnant with twins. I am so worried about what my belly is going to look like post partum. To date I have gained a total of 33 pounds! I started off at 126 and am now 159. I am 5 foot 2. Congrats you look great!

    this is sooo awesome. My twins are 14 months old and my body has been the hardest thing to cope with. I am 25 and married 5 yrs. I wonder if my husband ever thought I would like this.This site is giving me so much confidence to be proud of my body and the work that I have done as a mother. thanks for your stories. to all the beautiful mothers.

    Congratulations! Like other mothers said, you are very lucky and look just great! With some exercises you can get a body of a model!

    I am 18 week pregnant and had a flat stomach before. Nobody can see my belly yet, but it’s because I dress right… everyday I feel like my skin is stretching and it’s scaring me to death to know that my body will not look perfect anymore. Your case give me some hope!

    PLEASE!!!!! You look good! I had one baby 11 years ago and I don’t look as good as you. My mom says it’s cuz I’m getting close to 30. I say I need to do some sit ups and run. Anyway, whatever you’re doing keep it up cuz it’s working. My bff just had twins (a boy and girl) yesterday. I need to show her your pics so she can be encouraged. God bless.

    i am currently 19 weeks pregnant with twins (dont know what they are yet but they are fraternal). i have a 2 year old son and my body didnt bounce bounce back as quickly as your with just him….hope this time will be different.
    and you have absolutely no reason to fear your body wont go back to normal (or close enough) because you already look great. j.lo an julia roberts need to liik out!! =)

    You look awesome, and as a fellow mom of twins I can tell you 5 months isn’t enough time to expect your body to look “normal” again. Give yourself until their first birthday, at least, and you’ll be surprised. You really do look great, though!

    I am a mother of 9 children. My last babies are twins a boy and a girl. To regain my prepregnancy weight back i started walking every morning about 3 and a half miles. I still ate the same food just not as much. I DO NOT like to diet so i don’t. This works for me try it no matter how tired you are once you start you won’t want to stop. You’ll find that stomach back flat in no time

    I am a 23 yr old mom of b/g twins born 1/19/10. I went to 36 weeks and 5 days. Both babies 5lbs 3oz. My stomach isn’t as bad as I expected but I hope it gets to look like yours. I gained 55 pounds and have lost 40 of it already. It’s amazing what your body can do!

    Hi, I am 5 months post birth of my twin girls. I get very down looking at my over weight and mushy belly. I should get rid of the full length mirror!
    This is taking much more time than my first two (singleton) girls. Well, I just turned 40 and have the three and four year olds plus the 5 month old twins and I gained almost fifty pounds for the twins, so it’s a slow process getting back in shape.
    You look great, like you are about to snap right back into shape!
    Thanks for sharing.
    Twins are the absolute best!!!!!!!!!! Mom’s to be, they are not as difficult as you might think. enjoy.
