I accidentally got pregnant after dating my now husband for only 9 months. We soon decided to get married and 5 months later, I had our little boy. I gained 50 pounds and had a few stretch marks. I got pregnant soon after when my son was only 5 months old. I was on the patch and having heart problems when I got pregnant. Everything turned out fine and I had a little girl in April ’06 when my son was 14 months old. We decided two was enough and my husband had a vasectomy. Three months later, I find out I’m pregnant again. I delievered my third baby (all were induced and born vaginally) in May of ’07. I am now 11 months post-partem. My babies are 3, 2, and 11 months and I am so glad to have had all of them so quickly. I did, however, feel like I was pregnant for three years straight. I cried after my last baby because of the way my stomach looked. It gets better everyday and I’ve excepted my body and embrace it. It brought tears to my eyes to see everyone’s pictures on here. I was the first on both sides of our family to have a grandchild, so I had no one to experience pregnancy with. I am so happy to know that I am not alone and my body looks so much like everyone else’s out there. Thank you so much for making an ordinary person feel special and proud and priviledged.
