I’m Still Coming to Terms (Anonymous)

These photos are of me 6 mo pp with #2. I was 170# pre-pregnancy. I gained 65 with #1. When my first daughter was 15 mo I got pregnant again. This time I gained 35 lbs. I currently weigh 198#s. My belly is sagging and full of stretch marks. When I look at my beautiful girls I don’t care what my stomach looks like. Then I look in the mirror and I am unhappy with what I see. My husband is supportive and tells me he still finds me sexy. I have a hard time believing him sometimes. I am working on my self image and hope to come to terms with my new body soon.

    I gained 60 pounds too. It is hard to believe that our bodies change so much. We will feel like ourselves again. It is worth it.

    I think you and your babies are so very beautiful and totally think you should believe that your hubby thinks you are beautiful & sexy :-) No doubt he’s got 3 girls he adores – I am sure he’s v. happy!

    i gained 65 lbs in my pregnancy. people kept telling me the normal amount to gain was 20-30 but i think our bodies gain however much they need to to keep our babies safe and healthy. you look great, just know that your husband is right, you are sexy, and you have the beautiful body of a mommy. you honestly have 2 of the most beautiful children ive ever seen. good luck with everything!
