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
oh wow, your last picture shocked me! you look amazing.. its good to know that stretchmarks fade so muich, i cant see any in your last pic!! congrats you look great!
