Update at 7 Months PP (Jessica)

March 9, 2009

I’m writing to update my previous post at a few weeks postpartum back in August/September 2008. I am now 7 months postpartum and (very) slowly coming to terms with my “new” body. The lines are fading in color, but the texture, I’m not sure I’ll ever get used to! My husband assures me that I am more beautiful now, and I pray that someday I believe even an ounce of that statement. My sweet girl has her first tooth, is crawling, and is still breastfeeding (which has taken a huge toll on my once perky breasts!) Here is a before and current photo of my belly and a shot of my little angel Natalie.

Updated here.

    wow you look before and now, lucky you! your belly is flat and really baring the midriff is so not in fashion anymore anyways, you still have the nice flat belly, you look lovely, really.

    My belly is exactly like yours! I have the little stretch marks above my belly button from my piercing too. Its the texture that bothers me as well, but I’m 2 and a half years post partum so you’re looking great for 7 months, and you’ll see even more improvement over the next year. You’re little girl is gorgeous :D
