First Pregnancy at 16, Not So Bad (Anonymous)

When I first Got pregnant at 16, I was completely horrified. I was scared of everthing from baby care to stretch marks. I was 5’4 and 115 pounds. I gained about 17 pounds throught my pregnancy. I was so scared that I was going to be overweight and have stretch marks from head to toe.. but I didn’t get but two tiny half inch stretch marks, one right above my belly button and one right below, and you can hardly notice them. I guess I’m just trying to share my pregnancy experience with other teen moms so they don’t see pregnancy as a bad thing. I lost all the weight and more. And on top of it all, I have a happy heathly baby girl…Lila Mae

    Good for you! :) I honnestly think the younger you are, the better your body and skin bounce back! That said, I dont encourage 16 year olds to have babies, but it does make a difference in recovery!
    You look fab!!
    Gorgeous little girl! :)
