5 Months After an Un-Planned C-Section (Anonymous)

In November I gave birth to my wonderful baby girl. Over the course of trying to conceive her I gained 5-10 lbs, putting me at 145, then once I finally got pregnant I gained over 40 lbs, up to 188. 5 days after my due date I went into labor, but after 12 hours of labor and 2 hours of pushing the baby didn’t budge, so I was prepped for a c-section. I was totally crushed, I had always envisioned the birth of my first child a certain way, and that never involved a c-section. But it went well and I am just happy to have my amazing baby girl. I love her so much, it’s insane. I have been breast feeding for 5 months now and the pregnancy weight has melted off, and I am now 130. I got a lot of stretch-marks on my butt and legs, and only one on my tummy. Most of my stretch-marks are faded now, but my c-section scar is still bright red. But I am getting used to it now. With all my body has been through, I have never been more proud of it.

    Wow, you look great. The scar will fade in no time and you already would look great in a bikini.

    You look wonderful! I had an unexpected c-section 11 months ago and my scar it still red. Yours is low like mine though and will hide in a swimsuit.

    The scar will fade, I promise. Mine is nearly invisible these days.

    Congratulations on your baby!
