I love my new body – mummy of a 2 month old (Anonymous)

I didn’t appreciate how great my body was before I had my baby. The first picture is me aged 22. I am 25 in the second picture, and 38 weeks pregnant, passing the time by decorating my beautiful bump. I felt so feminine and fantastically curvy while I was pregnant, I loved my bump, I didn’t even mind strangers touching it! Now, my baby is 9 weeks old and I am breastfeeding her. I love my full breasts (they increased by 5 cup sizes) and so what if I have a few stretchmarks, they are the signs of the amazing bond I have with my baby as I nourish her with my breastmilk. I didn’t have any stretchmarks on my belly until I went overdue, I just have a few now, but again, I love them and I love the curve of my belly which shows I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl! My husband is amazing, he still thinks I am the sexiest woman on earth, he makes me feel great. I gained 50 pounds in my pregnancy, and 2 months post birth have 14lbs to lose to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. But I;m in no rush, I’m happy if those extra pounds want to stay there while I breastfeed, they are there for a reason.

    you look beautiful! At first I was not so excited about my new body along with all the new curves. but now I see its so femine and I feel more like a woman seeing other women that look like I do.

    Wow, it’s like looking in a mirror! I had almost the exact same pre-baby body and now have a very similar postpartum body…only my boobs aren’t quite so big. :P They actually got smaller. You look amazing! Congrats on your new baby!

    Wow… just 9 weeks old! You look fantastic! Keep up with the breastfeeding. I’ve been bfing for 8 months now and it really is the most amazing and fulfilling thing I’ve ever done! Not to mention, the weight just keeps falling off with the nursing! :)
