Still sexy at 5 months post-partum (Anonymous)

July 4, 2007

It has been 5 months since the birth of my baby boy. I am 23 years old, and this was my first pregnancy. I did not plan on becoming pregnant,but i was excited nonetheless when I found out . My belly grew and grew, and I got very big. People thought I was having twins and thought my doctor must have my due date wrong, because I was so big. Throughout my pregnancy, despite my joy, I always worried about what I would look like afterwards. I always had a nice body. Particularly my stomach was the one area that i liked the most. It was toned and tight before I got pregnant. At my age, I wasn’t ready to give that up, especially when all the other girls my age have such young tight bodies. Now mine is soft, squishy, and there is fat where there was never fat before. Although I now weigh less that pre-pregnancy, the fat is distributed differently, on my mid area. I always had very small breasts. Now, after 3 months of breastfeeding, they are even smaller looking and ‘deflated’. However, in looking at this site, I have gained the courage to post my pictures. I want to post them because I want to show that even though I have a “mommy body” and lots of stretch marks, I can still be sexy. I think sexyness comes from inside. If you feel sexy and portray that confidence, then the more sexy others will see you to be. I still wear my sexy underwear for my husband, even though it looks nothing like it used to on me. I am sexy , just in a different way now. I want all the moms that read this and see my pictures to realize that we are still attractive, even if you don’t see bodies like ours on the covers of magizines. I want to be confident in my own body, which is why i took these pictures at 5 months pp. I was fortunate enough to not get any stretch marks on my stomach, but you can see them on my sides and legs. But I dont care anymore, I refuse to dwell on it – my baby boy is too precious, and he was worth every stretch mark I have!

    breastfeeding is not what changes breasts, pregnancy is. :-)….Keep feeding your baby the best food, you are doing an amazing job!

    You look great! Don’t worry about your breasts, they change a lot following pregnancy and breastfeeding, mine were softest 10 months after weaning but by a year later had returned to their pre-pregnant perfection!
