    First of all, your baby is adorable! Second, you have basically been pregnant from the time you were 16 years old until now. That’s a lot for your body to go through, and considering that, you look great! Your skin is so beautiful and i dont see any stretchmarks! Just give your body time to heal and you’ll feel better in time.

    Five kids is awesome !! My wife had 6 and she had a tuck after #4 the 2 more so she feels a little silly and isn’t thrilled either but I think she looks awesome and when she returns from out of town I am bringing her here to see this site. You look fantastic and I hope I am not freaking you out being a guy seeing your shape. It is motherly and beautiful and you have 5 great babies who earned your great body with you. Peace

    Wow girl, you have been busy in the baby making department. That being said, you look great for having so many so young and so quickly!

    I am sure your body will adjust and acclimate, it is just so used to being pregnant.

    i don’t know that “trauma” would be the right word (unless of course your births were traumatic, in which case, i apologize). i’ve been learning a lesson recently (17 months pp myself): our bodies are not meant to look the same after childbirth! we have crossed that sacred threshold from maiden to mother & we are not maidens anymore, we are supposed to look like mothers. with that said, i’m going to tell you (whether you believe me or not) that i think you look curvy & sexy & HOT! you’re so beautiful, mother of 5. you have that linea negra i have always been jealous of & you are symmetrical with smooth lines. you look amazing.

    Thank you for your post, I cannot believe how you have had 5 kids in such a short period of time – you are BRILLIANT!!! AMAZING AND DOWN RIGHT BEAUTIFUL!!! believe it or not, time heals ‘wounds’ and your body has been through 5 amazing experiences you honestly just need to give yourself TIME TO HEAL both emotionally – the ups and downs of hormones – and physically. Please don’t try to fit into something that you can’t (literally and figuratively speaking) because of who you are right now doesn’t mean you won’t be the same person in a year!!! the kids will see to that ! How wonderful to have such a beautiful community in your own house! Phew! exhausting and beautiful all at the same time, I hope you have some help! Well done, give yourself a break!!! You are wonder woman!!!

    thank you for posting these pictures. I am having my first baby and I cry every day about my body. I have stretch marks and I’ve never had them before :(((
    I absolutely hate myself right now, I can’t even enjoy pregnancy. Seeing that I’m not alone and seeing real women (not those pregnant pics with no stretch marks and perfect shape BLECH) makes me feel a lot better about myself.
    Thank you!!
    Also, you look great!!!! IF only I can look that good after 5 kids

    I am expecting my 5th in 23 days. yes I am counting! Mine are 11, 4,3,1 and due any second. I am surprised to see how similar our bodies are. Mine looked very much like yours before I became pregnant this last time.
