At 23 I became pregnant. I had never wanted children and enjoyed being just an aunt. Quickly I grew excited for the new baby growing inside me. I reveled in the joys of nesting and planning. I did tell myself though that I would not wear traditional maternity clothes and manage to go most of my pregnancy with few maternity items despite the fact I gained nearly 40 lbs! I also told myself I wouldn’t go around in what i thought was “mom-gear” : exercise clothes, t-shirts, gym shoes, once the baby arrived. I now live in comfortable clothes that are usually spit-up stained or covered with spaghetti sauce from dinner and I am okay with it. I haven’t quite gotten down to my pre-pregnancy weight nor do I expect to ever have my “old” body back and I’m okay with that too.

It is hard sometimes to look in my closet and see all the beautiful clothes I spent years collecting and know that I can’t just slip them on and go like I used too, but there are far more important things in life; my son is learning how to crawl and today it looks like he’s doing the worm perhaps tomorrow it will resemble something closer to a crab walk. I know that I am blessed with a son who loves me, a partner who supportive and a family I can always count on.

I can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings even if I have to wear yoga pants find out. Special thanks to this site for making all women comfortable in their skin!

    I love this post! Thanks for making women comfortable in their own skin–so true! You look beautiful! I know how you feel, but keep your clothes for at least two years… At around 8 months post partum or so I threw out all of my clothes thinking I would never wear them again and I should just accept myself (a good thought of course!) but then I lost more weight as time went by and now I’m back in the same size at 2 yrs post partum and I COULD wear all of my old clothes… if only I hadn’t given them to charity. lol. So wait for a while longer. Your body will continue to change over time. :)

    You have a wonderful body and it seems like you only have light stretchmarks on your hips! I love happy, confident stories like this :)

    I genuinley mean it when I say I think you have a near perfect body. Everything is in the right place, and is all in proportion.

    I was 23 when i had my daughter, you look exactly like i do!! Except your skin is fabulous and i cant see but maybe two stretch marks which i personally would call a tatto of motherhood. Not to mention, HAVE YOU SEEN YOUR ABS????? they are fabulous! they scream crunches momma! Im here lets do this! I mean they are right there! Your tush even looks the same as mine, I htought for a minute it was me up there. You look awesome. And i think those clothes will be fiting in no time, jsut wait until your son learns to RUN. :)

    Honey, my advice to you is buy some new clothes that will extenuate your new figure.

    I bet that some tops would look really good on you now.
