First Time Mommy (Anonymous)

Hello! First I wanted to say that I love your site! It has helped me so much. My story is pretty short. I got pregnant when I was 21 with my first baby. I started to get stretch marks around 30 weeks and never stopped until he was born. I thought I would go back to my normal small size with a flat tight skin belly, but no such luck! He was born two days late, I was induced and then had an emergency c-section he was 8lbs 8ozs and perfect! It is very hard being a young mother who used to have a perfect beach body to having a body I hate. I wish I had the money to get a tummy tuck, but I put my child first and could never waste that much money on myself for such a shallow thing. I love being a mother and would never trade it for the world. I included a pic of my c-section scar! Thanks for listening and please keep this website going!!

    I think your body looks stunning!
    But I know exactly what you mean about how hard it is to be young and go from having the stereotypically perfect body to having one that is so drastically different.

    I think you look beautiful, your curves are sexy and VERY worthy of being proud of!!! I do understand your feelings too, I wish I’d appreciated and celebrated my body in its pre-baby state a little more now that that body is gone for good, but with time and places like this, we can all learn to love our bodies (again)!
