I stumbled across this website by luck. I was trying to search the internet for any type of helpful suggestions on how to “fix” my post baby belly and came across an article that mentioned this website. I’m 24 years old and just had my second baby 8 weeks ago. I have a son who is almost 3 years old.
I gained 50 pounds with my first pregnancy and 27 with my second. Before having children I weighed 125 lbs. Ever since I had my son I have been so hard on myself and the way my stomach looks. I hate it. I can never bring myself to take tops off in front of my husband. He says it doesn’t bother him, but I know he is just telling me that to not hurt my feelings. I feel like he is unattracted to me now. To top it off, one of my good friends who was pregnant the same time I was, her stomach looks just the same as it was pre-pregnancy which makes me beat myself up over how bad mine looks even more!
I feel like I’m always going to be unhappy about my body, I wish I could have a more positive outlook on it. Reading other articles on here has really made me feel like I’m not alone and has giving me some comfort so thank you.
