Unexpected C-Section (Anonymous)

I am 34 yrs old, my son, my first and only and here are some pics of mine 40 weeks pregnant and 8 days post partum…. This was my first pregnancy. I was planning for a vaginal birth from the beginning but by week 40 the doc realized that it wont be possible due to cord problems so there i was planning a csection for the following day. i was really scared of the operation and worried about my shape after the op. well, after i got to hold my son it all seemed meaningless. i was happy relaxed and laid back. i spent only one day in bed, which i believe helped the healing of my c-scar. and pregnancy was kind to me. no strech marks (almond oil) and my belly is getting smaller every day… i think that is thanks to breastfeeding… i have a few stretch marks on my breasts but i feel like my son is worth it all. he is so lovable and cute :)

    It’s taken a while, but I’ve now seen my body double on here. Both pregnant and post-pregnancy I look just like you. Except my skin is crinklier as I’ve had more kids. I think you look just fine!

    You look amazing! I wish more 30-somethings would post. I love the concept of this site, but often can’t relate to the postings of the women in their teens and early twenties.

    Yes, you really look good! I guess my body also bounced back quickly. I gained 8 kilos during pregnancy and lost 12 !! in the first week.

    Even my family was shocked, but it does take longer for the muscles to become firm again :)
