My daughters are now almost 4 years old and 8 months old. This was one of the highlights of my pregnancy with my second daughter, taken at Halloween, a few weeks before giving birth. Dressing up my belly was a lot of fun and I always loved the way it looked.


Now, eight months post-partum I know that I lost all the weight but the weight loss left some saggy stomach skin and a belly button that may never go back inside.


I am thrilled with what my body produced, but I would be so uncomfortable wearing a two-piece bathing suit or a shirt that doesn’t completely cover my stomach.

    Your blog is very inspirational and can give a lot of mothers out there a sense of relief knowing they arent “the only ones”I’m currently pregnant with my 2nd child. I’m 17 weeks. 22 years old.I dont have the best stomach.. its not to bad though. Seeing photos of some of the stretch marks women got on here make me very thankful mine isnt worst than it is… cause it could be.I remember I didnt have any sign of stretch marks until I was 8 1\2 months pregnant. my mom has ZERO stretch marks… so of course I thought I wouldnt.Haha wrong-o.Its not bad though. I am a very thing person and it is easily hidden.Of course I wont be sporting a two piece ;-) but I think I still look beautiful in other things.Thanks for the site. < pregnancy blog.

    I LOVE the fishbowl! SO cute!Your belly would look just lovely in a two-piece bathing suit. When you’re ready, you’re more than welcome to come hang out with my growing posse of mom’s who hang out beachside in bikinis. I’ve been seriously considering creating beach blankets with Zebrabelly’s blogs logo.. I’ll have to ask her about it!

    The belly is awesome! I’ll only be about 5 months come Halloween, but it’s my second pregnancy, and I got pregnant 4wks after I had my daughter, so I’m sure I’ll get big quickly! We should be able to have fun with it. :)
