This site is wonderful. I had a baby girl 3.5 years ago when I was 20 years old. I gained almost 40 lbs, however for some reason I never took any belly shots. I regret it now, I wish I could look back on them today. I feel awkward sharing my pictures here since I am happy with my post-baby body, but I saw that all pictures are encouraged so I’d love to participate. So here are two pictures of me, one from the front and one from the side. I have no idea how I was so blessed to get my original body shape back. I do have a few light stretch marks on my hip, boobs, and my butt, but they are not too visible with the camera. My boobs definitly used to be a lot perkier, those and my saggy butt are my two biggest body insecurities.

    My body is very similar but my stomach isnt as flat as yours.I gave birth in Oct. 01′ so it has almost been 5 years. Despite a stretch mark around my hips/thighs, I am actually more confident w/my body now than I was before I was pregnant.

    Can I just tell you (not to sound like a perv or anything) that you have the perfect boobs and I WISH mine looked like that!

    I didn’t take any pregnant belly shots either. I, too, regret it. But at least now I am confident enough that I will do it with the next pregnancy

    And, I agree. Your breasts are beautiful (mostly because they are “ideal” for breastfeeding – I wish my nipples pointed horizontal. lol

    WTF – I’ve never seen any pre or post pregnancy breasts that look like that? I agree with the last anonymous poster and join in on the question.

    After 2 kids, my breasts actually still look great. I’m almost 30 so they’re beginning to sag more now, but I think I know why *mine* looked normal even after my 2nd child. 1) I didn’t breastfeed (Not by choice. When I was unsuccessful for weeks, I continued pump) and 2) I ALWAYS wear a bra, and always have, even to bed. I also think it has to do with the person’s body in general as well. It’s a lot like the stretchmarks I think.

    I must agree – you do have very nice breasts! The only breasts I have seen look that nice were those of a woman who had comsmetic surgery (not that I’m implying that you did – just that they are very nice).I’ve always had HUGE boobs, so it’s hard to keep them perky. I’ve always loved them, though. I know my husband does. :-)

    No, completely honest I do not have implants. I didn’t breastfeed, so maybe that is why they look this pretty similar to my pre-pregancy boobs? Haha not sure, but I do want to try harder at breastfeeding my next baby, so we’ll see if they change then i guess. Thanks everyone for the sweet comments, they made me smile!!!

    Pregnancy makes the breasts sag. It’s genetics and youth that make you so good looking!You do have a lovely body and I was glad to read that you are happy with the way your body looks.

    Pardon me, but your breasts are amazing! They look fake they’re so perfect! I’m so jelious! I’m breastfeeding and still a very small B cup :( And now my nipples look to big for my small boobs!

    I agree with everyone! Your boobs look perfect, like a manican or a painting or a model with fake boobs. You look amazing!!!!!!! I can’t believe that you have a belly ring and didn’t get any stretch marks from that! I see that alot, I got stretch marks from my naval ring scar.
