Mommy to Many (Anonymous)

I just found this site a few days ago and it has really inspired me to be more comfortable with my body. I have been overweight all my life and being perpetually pregnant for the last 3 years hasn’t helped any. I love being pregnant though and wear my stretch marks and deflated boobs with pride!

The first pic here is of me 35(!) weeks pregnant with my twin girls Donna and Maria. I was very large, very uncomfortable, and very stretched out at that point. I am now 11 months post-partum and 20 weeks pregnant with boy/girl twins. I have all the stretch marks to prove it…plus this weird blob of hanging fat below my stomach. The second and third pics are of me this evening. As you can see, my boobs haven’t faired too well either.

I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world though. I am hoping to have at least one more baby after these twins come out so I just have to learn to live with this body. I think being able to post these pics is a big step in the right direction.

    I have never felt compelled to leave a comment here before, even though I stop by here every day. Your body is an exact replica of mine!!! (apart from my boobs are bigger and saggier!)

    It’s hard when everyone else seems to have neat little melon shaped bumps eh? We’re beautiful in our own way :)

    Thank you for your bravery and for sharing your beauty.

    I’m 42 and have 4 girls ages 19-1 and my belly looks like yours, LOL

    You’re beautiful mom!

    WOW! I dont know if I could handle twins. You were huge!

    My body look identical to yours. Except my boobs are bigger and saggier also Hazel. But, I wouldnt go back to my 5’6 140lb skinny body for anything. My kids are so worth every inch of fat and every stretch mark!!!
    Your beautiful!!!

    Oh, wow. Thank you so much for sharing your pics. Your stretch marks look a lot like mine. Almost identical (although I have them on my arms, too), especially the ones on the sides of your breasts. I thought I was the only one with the dark/wide ones. This is such a blessing. Women coming together to share and appreciate each other. You’re lovely.

    Wow, two sets!! My grandmother had two sets, and I am currently pregnant with twins. Your situation and my grandmother’s are exactly why my husband and I are slightly antsy about future pregnancies! We’re not sure if any more is right for us!

    Thank you for posting your pictures, your build looks similar to mine and I’ve been curious as to how my own body may turn out after the babies are here. However, I’m beginning to think that it won’t matter. REAL women are so much sexier than the airbrushed ones we’ve become so accustomed to seeing!

    Much love, Mary.
