body after pregnancy baby 8 months old (Anonymous)

Before I got pregnant with my daugther gabryelle i was very active, i am 5 feet 5 never been over 120lbs and i am very muscular. i am 24 years old and recently got married in january. my pregnancy was planned and i enjoyed it fully, it was the best experience , i had a natural labor and no difficulties.i gained 50lbs with my pregnancy, went up to a size 11-13 now i am a size 5 from eating healhty and walking 1-2 hours a day .my health is most important not the way i look. i breast fed for 6 months so my breast are now saggy and not as firm as they once were, but i still feel beautiful and my husband thinks i am as well, we must not be so shallow, its good to take care of our bodies because of our health, but not for vanity. we are all beautiful no matter what shape and size, and anyone critising a mother because of her new body is very shallow and insensitive , i wouldnt trade my body for anything, i look at my daughter and she is worth it, we are now 4 weeks pregnant with our second baby. bring it on stretch marks . and i must add all the woman on this site are beautiful mothers and this is a wonderful site to help with self esteem.

    Wow! You look absolutely fantastic! I really think it’s great to embrace all shapes and sizes, but it’s also good to emphasize the importance of eating right and excercise! You are an inspiration

    Your attitude is inspirational! You’re right–we should take care of ourselves for health’s sake and bear the badges of motherhood proudly.
