12 weeks pp with first baby (Anonymous)

i am 19 years old i found out i was pregnant what i was 18 it was scary at first but i got used to the idea even was fine that i had left her father and would be a single mother, and now here i was have a beautiful 12 weeks old baby girl who i wouldn’t trade for the world… but i wish i could be happier with how my body is now i do miss my old body a lot and i wasn’t all that happy with it when i had it but now that i’m 30lbs heavier and 3 sizes bigger i realize how much skinnier i was i don’t think i thought about how much having a child changes your body until i had one of my own… i’m very glad that i have found this website it makes me feel much better knowing that there are women who feel the same or have gotten back to the body they had before i sure hope someday i will but for now i’m not to worried about it i have my little girl here and that’s all that matters.. my pictures are working backwards from now to before i got pregnant.

    You poor thing! That’s what my stretch marks looked like after my first child too. 4 years and 2 children later you can’t even see my stretch marks they are so light. I hope that encourages you!

    You look beautiful. Keep in mind that the strechmarks fade every day, and the extra weight also melts away every day. Especially if you’re breastfeeding. ;)

    You are only 12 weeks pp.. Give it some more time. I am almost 8 months PP, but my stretch marks are looking more silvery everyday. My story is “6 months later”
    Keep your head up!

    I was just like you after i gave birth but believe me the stretch marks don’t stay red they fade with time. I went to the gym but the stretch marks are still all over my tummy, be proud you carried a life in your tummy dont care what people think or say your body is still beautiful
