Update (Sierra)

January 4, 2010

Original entries here and here.

I have posted on here twice & will probably only post again once more after this, but I do love visiting this site quite often. I love seeing how many brave, wonderful, & extremely beautiful mothers are out there!! Please ladies always keep your head held high and know you are a beautiful WOMAN!

My twins are now 6 months old (6 months postpartum) and doing wonderful. They are a bit on the small side, nothing that makes the pediatricians worry however. My son is now 2 1/2 and still doing so amazing with his sisters, he’s such a big help and wonderful big brother. I am such a proud and happy mother to all 3 of my beautiful children. I wouldn’t change a minute of it, they have given me soo much hope and unbelievable joy, they truly are my every reason for breathing. I am now engaged to the love of my life & we plan on marrying in August of next year. I am so happy and complete with my life, i couldn’t possibly ask for anything more.

It’s been a hard road to get to this point, but i’m happy i’ve made it. I used to be so insecure with myself and at times still do struggle with my own insecurities as does every woman/mom at some point, but i’ve truly found my equal who loves every bit of me and accepts me for me & i have 3 beautiful healthy children to show for everything I’ve been through. I’m stronger than I once was & its all thanks to my children and my wonderful fiancee.

    you look amazing and your children are adorable. Did you work out through both pregnancies? Did you follow any particular plan to lose the baby weight?

    You look great! I am 24, and have a 2 yr. old daughter and found out I’m having twins this summer! I got lucky after my daughter and got back into shape pretty easily, but was scared for my body when I found out I was having twins. You give me hope!

    Thank you everyone! Ya’ll are too sweet!

    For those that asked if i worked out, sorry to say i really had no work out regimen but running around after a 2 yr old little boy, and constantly feeding two babies. I did breastfeed until the twins were almost 5months old, i also breast fed my son until he was 6 months old the first time around so that helped a lot. I wish i could give you all this super amazing workout, but needless to say it wasn’t any of that it was the constant need and attention of 3 kids and forgetting about myself & eating. Bad i know. But believe you me eating healthy when i did remember to feed myself helped.

    Kaitlin- Congratulations on your twins, they are truly a blessing! & soo much fun. Just remember to include your daughter in everything you do with them that helped a lot with my son and he had no resentment or anything toward his sisters. ANd don’t worry as long as you don’t use your pregnancy as a reason to eat whatever you want then you should be fine. I gained the same amount of weight with my twins as i did w/ my son. Ended up with very few stretch marks that you can’t even see now.

    Needless to say i am very weight conscious & thats bc in high school i used to be bigger & have always been afraid of letting myself go due to pregnancy and what not, i’ve seen that happen before & its definitely a struggle afterwards. I’m going to invest in p90x & see how that goes, I’m getting married in August & want to be in the best shape of my life once i finish the regimen i will post another update. Keep your head up ladies we are all beautiful inside and out and possess the most precious gift of all..to carry and give life. whether we bounce right away or have to work really hard. Every stretchmark, every bulge, or saggy part of us made and created a beautiful thing! Be happy & blessed!!
