body after first baby (Anonymous)

This picture was taken when my daughter was 13 months old and I was actually on my honeymoon. My husband and I were goofing off and taking stupid pictures of each other on the beach, but I happened to really like this picture of myself. I have saved it because I am now 8 months pregnant with my second child, a boy, and I have already gained over 40 pounds! I have always been self-conscious about my body, even battling an eating disorder for 4 years. This picture gives me hope that I might be able to look like this after baby number 2. I worked hard to get back into shape after Savannah was born but I am afraid that with having two children under 2 years old, I might not be able to meet my goal this time. Either way, I know that my husband loves me no matter what. After seeing all the beautiful mothers on this website who are willing to share their stories about their bodies, I wanted to be a part of it. No matter what, as long as I have two healthy babies it doesn’t matter what I look like. I have the rest of my life to work on my body, but my babies will only be young once. I’m going to enjoy them!!!

    Damn you’re a gorgeous woman, in all 3 of those photos. I wouldn’t worry too much about bouncing back, by the sounds of it you have a great little family who loves you a lot.

    Wow! Your body is AMAZING! And about losing the weight the second time: I have 2 kids 20 months apart. I put on about 65 pounds with my first and lost 75. I put on 35 with my second and lost 60. Between nursing (if thats what you choose) and taking care of 2 kids, and working out you will lose it in no time! I weigh less now than when I was 18. You have nothing to worry about! You are beautiful and your body is and will be too! And I adore that wedding pic! There is something special about being at your own parents’ wedding :)
