My fiance and I are planning to get pregnant shortly after our wedding next year. I am 5’6”, 105 lbs, and I am so worried that I will become big and squishy with lots of stretch marks. We want a baby, but I cry about how things will change a lot. I come from a family where a lot of pressure was placed on my appearance from a young age.
I want you to know that your story and photos have given me hope that I, too, can come out of pregnancy with some semblance of my prior form that won’t lead me back into anorexia and depression.
You have given me the hope and strength to have a baby with the man I love.
Hi there, you look just great! A lot of women would pay a lot to their beauty council/nutritionist/coach or whatever to have your body! When I read your description, I feared to look at an anorexic filly-like women, but this is definitely not the case. Please rejoice and enjoy your body, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with it! Your breasts are neither too hangy nor too small, with a bra they’re just right. And you have a wonderful tummy, who could tell you gave birth? You don’t look boyish at all.
I’m a woman of 40, not attracted to women, 2 pregnancies. And I’ve seen a lot of women after pregnancy – you’re really fine, believe me!
