19 years old, 5 months post partum (Ashley)

Before I got pregnant I was a slim 135 pounds, at 5’7″. I felt my greatest and was so happy that I could shop and wear just about anything, all the way down to a bikini in the summer. I got pregnant in March and gained a total for 55 pounds! I got so many stretch marks, and extra weight around my hips that i’m finding impossible to get off. I had to have a C-section the day of my due date, so that’s another scar that I will have for the rest of my life. However, I am not looking at the scars as a bad thing. From all this I have a GORGEOUS baby boy and my fiance doesn’t love me any less than before, actually, I think he likes the extra junk in my trunk ;o)

    You look great! :) Im having some serious boob jealousy at the moment! Mine roll off my sides when I lay like that (and that is NOT sposed to happen at 19! haha) Your body really looks fantastic, we have very similar bellys. Its wonderful to hear that you and your fiance love your body!!! And you could totally rock a bikini this year if you wanted to!

    You sound a lot like me and your stretch marks look like mine aswell! They fade a ton and the extra weight will come off, it takes time :) I think you look great, congrats on the baby!

    Thank you everyone for your comments! I’m still working on losing some pounds but over all I am very comfortable in my new body, even with summer approaching very fast =)

    I can only echo the lady above who has commented on your beatiful boobs– mine run away and hide under my arms when I am lying down. Losing your body is a terrifying thing, but with time and effort you can (mostly) get it back. I think it would be weird to not look different after everything that has changed emotionally.
