Second Pregnancy Twins and C-Section (Anonymous)

August 15, 2007

With my first, I had an emergency c-section. He was a big baby with a ton of fluid; I was huge (or so I thought.) After he was two months old I realized I would never look the same. I was wrinkly and with a small bulge. Fast forward seven years of ensuring my stomach was covered and a twin pregnancy later. I was truly huge. I had scabs all over my stomach as my stomach grew. I was awesomely large and a force to be reckoned with. They were born via c-section at 39 weeks 4 days. I nursed, rather NURSE them exclusively since they were an hour old. My body has changed and I will never be the same but I have three beautiful, healthy children to THANK for my wondrous body.

    All I have to say is WOW!!!! You are truly a supermom!!! And kudos to you for breastfeeding twins, that is an amazing accomplishment. That pic of those two little angels is beautiful, what a wonderful wonderful thing. By the way you look awesome pregnant, I wish I could have that much pride in myself to wear a bikini while I’m pregnant.

    Wow, your stomach is amazing! The human female body is a wonderful thing. And nursing twins on demand is great too–so good for them and for you too. I hope they sleep sometimes so you can get some rest!

    You look amazing!

    And huge congats for exclusively nursing twins. The traditional medical community pushes formula way too much for multiple births-you’ve got two breasts for a reason!

    Good job momma, and beautiful children.

    You look so good in that bikinin pic, good for you for being so comfortable in your body. I can’t believe how far out your belly was when you were pregnant with those twins!!! it is straight out!!!! I think your post partum belly looks great considering how large your belly was!! Oh and your babies are ADORABLE!

    Your kids are absolutely gorgeous, as are you!

    That is one impressive belly!! lol Your postpartum belly reminds me a lot of mine, though I suspect mine isn’t quite as “bad” as I think it looks…lol
