My 35 yr old Mommy body (Anonymous)

I have been visiting this website for some time now and finally found the courage to send in a few pictures. I am so thankful for this site that actually celebrates our Mommy bodies. I have two wonderful children ages 2 and 5. Although my love for them is overwhelming, my love of my body has suffered terribly. I did not get any stretchmarks, but instead have visible green veins and blue spider veins on my legs. I also have this pot-belly that just won’t go away. About 6-8 months after having my 2nd child I had 2 different people ask me when I was due! I am in the process of learning to accept and embrace this new body. Like many of you have said before, I have to remember it has grown and nourished two miracles!

    Thank you for posting! I think you look great and, I have to say, it is encouraging to me to see other women with small breasts who still look womanly and attractive. Sometimes I fret about mine, but lately have come to be very appreciative of what I have, even if they aren’t as ample as some. As for your belly, it looks very smooth and I don’t think you look pregnant at all!

    Yes, I wanted to post my pictures because I haven’t seen many women post who have small breasts. I have always been self-conscious of how small mine are, given that I’m not a tiny woman (5′ 7″ tall). I was so excited when they grew while breastfeeding my son, only to see them shrink back afterwards! Oh well, I won’t have to worry about sagging I guess! Ha!

    I just found out I am pregnant with #3 and I was looking through sites. Your story caught my attention because I also have small breasts (they shrank after my other 2 pregnancies) and I have a baby belly that won’t go away. My children are 9 and 6 and I had come to terms that I would always wear clothes to hide it. Thank you for being more fearless than I could be!

    You have a body type just like mine, only about 40 lbs. lighter it looks like. :p Here’s my pics: https://theshapeofamother.com/2007/05/my-35-yr-old-mommy-body-anonym.php

    You have a beautiful, womanly body, imo.

    Are you kidding? You’re gorgeous! You have an adorable body. Don’t let MTV or the stupid plastic surgery reality shows tell you otherwise; that crap isn’t real.

    Be proud of and thankful for your your cuteness. :)
