I’ve included three pictures of my belly when I was pregnant the second time. The one in the white shirt is at 40 weeks, just a few days before labor began. The black shirt is at 37 weeks, and the view from the top of my bulging belly-button is at 34 weeks. I had my first in a hospital in Florida and gave birth to a 9 lb 2 oz boy. My stretch marks went from pubic bone to belly button, and from side to side, all the way. I thought they couldn’t get any worse. As you may be able to see, they did. My daughter (#2) was 10 lbs 4 oz, born at home, unassisted, in a pool. She caused my stretch marks to extend by about two inches, now they go up past my belly button. It doesn’t bother me the way it used to. I still have a belly, but I haven’t exactly done a lot of working out either. I’m sure even when I do lose the weight I’ll still have an apron. Maybe when I get a new camera I can submit a picture of my postpartum body.
