I got pregnant with my son when I was 22 years old around Christmas time. My husband had just returned from Iraq and we planned to try for a child. A month later, we were pregnant! We found out it was a boy and from there were so excited to be parents. I was 109 lbs then with a 5’3 body frame and have been stick then my whole life. My family is use to having big babies and never thought I would have one. Once I pushed my son out, my stomach sunk in like I’ve never seen before. HE WAS BEAUTIFUL! (he still is) and I couldn’t stop telling him how gorgeous he was! Then they weighed him. Coming out at 9lbs 4 oz and 20 1/2 inches long! It was the most amazing thing, I felt incredibly connected to him! (The next month my sister had a baby the same size!!!) Afterwards, I noticed my belly button had loose skin.Afterwards we went through another deployment and I barely ever worked out nor did I want too. And I still havent (he is now home, again!). I am very comfortable in my skin now. I have come to terms with the loose skin and stretch marks. He came out healthy and is an incredibly sweet little boy, so I know how blessed I am. I went back to being tiny again, just had that little extra. My husband still finds me incredibly sexy and that is all that matters. As a matter of fact, I think I look great! I love my boobs (which seemed to have kept its shape). Anyway, I wanted to share my pictures!!!!

You look adorable & your son is adorable. You should tell your husband he’s a lucky man!
You look great! Your belly button looks like it’s making a kiss.
i miss your baby-belly! haha.
plus i think you look great, there’s so many women that don’t even come close to their original shape.
You look amazing, your stretch marks are barely visible! Have they always been like that, did you use any creams?
WOW , you look incredible. Good for you!
To Kay, no I barely used creams. They are quite visible, but most are white. Its just the bit of excess skin that had bothered me before :)
i have the same belly button!
