Am I Still Beautiful? (Anonymous)

I am 39 years old, wanting to accept my changing body, 3 pregnancies (3P/2B), both birth were vaginal, My “normal size”, 160cm, 55 kg (110lbs). Breast 32B,

I was 37 at the time I was pregnant with my second baby, I did gain a lot of weight and when I was 39 weeks I weighted nearly 76kg (150lbs), and I am only 160cm, 5 ft 3 in – I did look like an elephant, but somehow I liked my body, I was adored by my hubby and he was regularly taking pictures of my growing body.

Disaster came after I gave a birth … 5 months postpartum I still looked like I was pregnant, (First 11 pictures), stretch marks on my belly was the worst, my breasts got saggy and my nipples changed shape. My hips and legs look like I was 20 years older that I am, WHAT TO DO !

~Age: 39
~Number of pregnancies and births:3/2
~The age of your children, or how far postpartum you are: 12/2, I am 2 years PP

    Yes, you are, you are absolutely beautiful, although I also understand it it difficult to appreciate a body that has changed. I am seeing you for the first time, not knowing the “before”, and I see alabaster skin, beautiful, enviable breasts, and a true women all around.

    I am not sure what you are seeing. I see a beautiful woman, with NO stretch marks, a smooth stomach, perfect legs, and a defined waist. We clearly see ourselves different than others do. You do not even look 39! Your body looks younger than mine (I am 28!).

    To answer your question: YES, YOU ARE STILL BEAUTIFUL :)

    You may benefit from Julie Tupler’s exercise program, or others like it (check out the BeFitMommy site) -any reputable program to help close diastasis recti, which causes permanent “mommy tummy” & back issues later in life. I think it’ll help you feel like you’ve taken control of your body again, & if you stick with the regimen that’s tailored to new mothers you WILL see results. Good luck!

    First, your breasts look like mine did postpartum. I assume you breastfed and that is the most beautiful thing of all is that you gave your child all of yourself to give it the best life possible. I am only 21 and I do understand that it gets harder to go back into our pre-pregnancy shape as we age. You look amazing, not in the eyes of the media, but at least in mine and im sure your husbands as well. Your body is something to be proud of. Embrace your motherhood.
