Sometimes I like it sometimes I hate it (Anonymous)

March 7, 2011

~Age: 27
~Number of pregnancies and births: 1
~The age of your children, or how far postpartum you are: 6 month

This is my first pregnancy and I should admit I was not quite ready emotional to things happened to me. I love my little girl who is 6 month old now but there are some things that upsets me a lot. I was 125 lbs before pregnancy and I already returned back to my weight. Still I am not happy with my body: there are some days I look at myself in a mirror and I think its ok it could be worse ( I did not get any stretchmarks) and sometimes the look of my body just upsets me so much. Recently I went to the pool that I was really excited about it since it was my first time after birth. Well, let me tell you I felt extremely insecure, I still have this line across my stomach and I felt like I am really chubby in comparison to other girls with perfect bodies. I am not saying anything about my boobs, they are saggy anyway. At the same time I am deeply ashamed of my own stupid behavior, I should just enjoy every minute playing with my little miracle but I choose to poison myself with negative thoughts. I do work out, try dieting but even with my weight 125 lbs I still look different.

    Girl you look super sexy! I am sorry you feel insecure, because trust me I get it, but you really shouldn’t. You look amazing, and I would love to have your stomach, and I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels that way! I am very very thin but my stomach doesnt look like yours. You should be proud, and plus it’s only been 6 months! After my first it took me a year before I showed my stomach off again, so it will get even better

    Your body looks amazing. You do not look like you have had a baby. Let alone were pregnant only 6 short months ago. Try to embrace your newly shaped body.

    Your body looks great! You are only 6 months pp, your still going to change a lot. I really think it takes a year or two to emotionally balance out from having a baby, just try to keep your head up. Pilates and weights have really changed my body after kids. Lifting may bulk you up a little at first, but then your new muscle will feed off any surrounding fat 24/7 so you end up slimming down, and the pilates is great for tightening up your tummy again. Your point of view will change so much, please post any updates! Congratulations on your baby :)

    Trust me you look great:) I am 22 & 120 pounds & you look way better than me! I know how you feel though. We are our harshest critics.

    If you’re talking about the line from your belly button down, it’s adorable. I have the same line and I haven’t had babies yet!! I actually really like my line, I think it’s kinda unique!! I’ve always had it so I never considered it to be a bad thing. Embrace that sexy, toned stomach of yours. You’re hot, momma. :)
