I am a 36 y/o Mother of a 4 year old son and 8 month old daughter.
I gained ~40 lbs with both of my pregnancies.
Both of my children were born via c-section. Both on a Monday. Both were 9lbs.
I loved being pregnant and celebrated both of my pregnancies with photos.
With my son, I had a professional portrait taken. With my daughter, I took a LOT of self portraits.
As of this writing, I weigh less than I did before I became pregnant with my daughter last year. This thanks to the breast-feeding/starvation from running around taking care of two kids diet.
Here is a link to the story of my daughter’s birth last November.
