Pregnancy and postpartum with twin girls (Shelly)

Age: 35
6 pregnancies that included 5 live births, including full term twins.
Would be 15.5 yrs old (Passed away sadly), 14 year old, 5 year old, and ten month old twin girls.
10 months postpartum
In the pregnancy pic I’m almost 33 wks with twins. (I grew MUCH MORE by 37 wks. when I delivered.)
I am 9 weeks postpartum in the after-preggo pictures. Thanks to my belly binding! I owe it all to that!
Me with my twins at 7 weks old.

All vaginal births. I have no battle scars to share, but I would have worn them with pride, because my children are SO worth anything. I believe a woman should love herself as she is, but I don’t blame those, like myself who rub creams to prevent stretchmarks and use binders to close diastasis and flatten mummy tummies.

The human body is beautiful. ALL shapes, sizes, and colors! I decided to put a nude pic up because I think the pregnant woman’s body is a beautiful thing, but I did cut my head off, lol.

    I totally agree with you. I think the pregnant female body is the most attractive a womans body can be.

    Definitely going to try a belly binder after I have my baby! You look incredible :)

    I am so envious! You look look like you have never even carried. I am 10m pp and my body is still changing! I had a 4.5 finger space after one child, stretch marks and loose skin. I wish someone had told me what such a large weight gain would do! (I thought I would just loose the weight without damage 33.5k)
    Well done you look great.

    You look beautiful! So sorry for the loss of your child. I think you have a wonderful outlook on being a mommy and a woman, congratulations on your new additions!

    You look great! What kind of binding did you use? I am interested in using the same with my second child. Thanks

    I am so jealous I could cry, I have a post on the twins page and I may be as thin as you but have all the battle scars and sagging skin and I couldn’t say that I could wear it loud and proud…ugh, you have a gorgeous body!!

    You look great! I did all the creams, exercised and didn’t gain too much but still have loose skin on the abdomen and fine stretch marks. I was pregnant at the same time as my best friend who has 11 kids…her mom had 9 too…neither had any stretch marks. She too has one set of twins. You have great genes for skin elasticity!
