I had my baby boy 1.5 years ago, at the age of 26. He was a big boy, weighing nearly 10 lbs which made for a much more difficult labour than I anticipated. It ended up 2 days later in a C-section which I actually really liked. Relief. I found pregnancy to be much harder than i thought it would be, i had no idea my back would hurt so badly. When my son was born, I was shocked to realize that I did not love him immediately as so many people say. However this love grew and by the time he was 6 months old, I loved him so much. My love continues to grow and I just believe he is the most precious and adorable boy out there:) I started about at 155lbs and ended up gaining 32 lbs. I got the stretch marks on my belly at 38 weeks. I was really worried about them but at this point, i like how they make my stomach look like a mommy stomach. I have lost almost all the weight, just 5 lbs extra which is fine with me. My breasts are another story. I did not expect the engorgement when my milk came in and to go up 3 sizes overnight did not make my breasts any better in the end. Overall though, I did love breastfeeding so it is worth it. I love this site and I appreciate how people are willing to bare their bodies to help other women deal with theirs. For now, I do not feel brave enough to bare much, but here is my mommy belly with its lines.

I just had to comment and let you know that I felt the same way when my son was born–not immediately and overwhelmingly in love. I loved him, yes, but not nearly as much as I thought other moms did right away. But now? That love has grown exponentially every single day. It’s nice to know I’m not the only one who had it happen that way.
this is a beautiful photo. thank you for sharing.
i wonder if women portrayed by the media looked like us moms, would we all be more excited to look the way we do?
but you look amazing, i personally consider you to look like the women portrayed in the media.
well done missy.
