Be proud of who you are. You created a life and you are sustaining it. As it is often said here, nursing doesn’t change your breasts, pregnancy does. Keep it up and enjoy your baby girl!
Hey no offense, but you look great compared to some women, who gain more than you did. I started out at 177lbs and got up to 221lbs. You have nothing to gripe about for the simple fact that I gained 2lbs more than you did and I didn’t have an single stretch mark. I love my body the way it was before and I wouldn’t trade it for the 8lb 3oz 20 1/2 baby boy I had and I had an emergency c-section. I even breastfed. You are beautiful. I wish I had looked that good at 3 1/2 PP. Don’t worry about what a man thinks about how you look. I am married and nothing my husband says works. Only what you think counts and girl if I was you I would show it off. Email me back sometime and we can talk more. firstname.lastname@example.org .
Actually, your boyfriend sounds quite cruel to be making such mean comments. I’m so happy you found us too.
Oh my gosh, I feel like im looking into a mirror! your story is so similar to mine as well, I was about 155-160 lbs when i first got pregnant, and i had just started working out (really hardcore) i was sick of being overweight. and i have those same looking stretch marks on my hips as well!! you look amazing!! Keep up the good work, its all worth it for our little peanuts
Just wanted to reply to the people who posted as this is my post. I definatly dont feel my boyfriends cruel. When I first had alot of body changes I think he was just trying to make me laught or not really thinking before he spoke. He definatly didnt mean to hurt my feelings (with the south nipple comment). Infact he’s the one who tells me how beautiful I am and how I shouldnt worry about my stomach or breast. He constanly calls me sexy. Im sure if he wasnt as positive as he is I wouldnt be feeling as good about myself as I now do 8 months later. :)
Thanks for your comments though.
