Update: 22, Surviving Newborn Twins and a 2yo (Sierra)

July 16, 2009

I recently posted on here when i was 2 weeks postpartum with twins. I am now 5 weeks postpartum and wanted to share with everyone the update. My girls are doing fabulous. They are both breast feeding like champs and since birth have each gained 2lbs!! My 2 yr old is doing so great with them, he is a very big help and doesn’t show any jealousy towards his little sisters at all. I couldn’t ask for a better bunch of children, they are my life! Again this website has been very inspiring and i absolutely love it!! I am very self conscious of my body and myself, but then again there are very few women who aren’t, this website has taught me that no matter what i am a mother and i am beautiful and it’s bc of my children that i am who i am. My stretch marks are beginning to fade ( i didn’t get very many, which i was completely surprised about carrying twins and being so small) and my stomach has gone down drastically since my 2 week postpartum picture, i was very concerned and worried about muscle separation in my stomach and have since learned that there wasn’t any and i’m very thankful and blessed…just wanted to share my update i will continue to update as time goes by and my twins continue to grow.

    You look amazing! I had twins five years ago but I was never a small girl. I also didn’t get many stretch marks and those I did get, quickly faded. Congrats on three beautiful children!

    What are you self conscious about?? You are so tiny…It does not even look like you have ever had kids (other that the tiny cesarean scar), you look amazing! I am jealous!

    chj i did wrap my belly probably for the first month after the twins were born i really do think that that helped a lot to help my stomach go down…
