Mum at 16, Learning to love my new body (Anonymous)

I Fell Pregnant Febuary 2008, at the age of 15. I never once considered abortion or adoption, I decided too keep my baby once i found out. The father had mixed emotions but is now a proud father, I gave birth too a beautiful baby girl 5 days after my 16th on the 17th nov 08. She was an emergency c-section baby due too her doing her first poop “Meconium” In my stomach, Her heart rate was dropping with every contraction. And i was way too tense. I Thought i got away with no stretch marks until i hit 34 weeks.. And suddenly they appeared. I Must admit i dont have that many. And im quite pleased with how i look now (1 month after), I am amazed with the shape of my body, How smililar it looks, The stretch marks do put me down a bit, But im getting over it.. Here are some of my pictures.

    I too was 15 when I got pregnant with my first, 16 when I had him. I’m now 19 and have two. A boy and a girl.
    You look great for only 1 month PP.

    I’m also a young mother, + your pictures inspired me to LOVE my new body, embrace my curves, curves that nothing but my beautiful baby girl can give me.
    personally, i think you look absolutely fantastic; stretch marks+all :]

    Good for you for your lovely attitude! Your baby is lucky to have such a mother teaching her. Bravo, so many teens would shy away from revealing their battle scars, wear them proud!

    This is kind of freaky and ironic. I became pregnant in March 09 when I was 15. I had my baby boy 5 days after my 16th birthday. The day that I lost my virginity to my boyfriend that was the father (at the time was my boyfriend) was November 17th 08.
    This is kind of weird to read because it’s almost exactly my story and you have the same dates as I do.
