Still Trying to Cope (Victoria)

Im 19 and im still coming to terms that my body changed. I gave birth 21months ago and I thought my body would go back to normal like when my mother gave birth to me but no that didn’t happen. I wasn’t skinny before but a normal weight for my body I just thought that it would be the same but no. My partner tells me i shouldn’t care or worry he loves me no matter what and has told me my tummy has gone down more
But its what i feel.

~Number of pregnancies and births: 1 pregnancy
~The age of your child: 21 months

Photo 1 is me today.

Photo 3 the last day I was pregnant.
Photo 4 My pride and joy. Daughter.

    Awww your baby is so adorable! :D I have a two and a half year old. :D
    You look fantastic. Look what your body has done, my dear! You have created life (with God’s help of course), but look what your body has done!!! You look beautiful. Tell yourself that daily and often. Not only do YOU need to hear it, but as your daughter’s example of what a REAL woman looks like, YOUR DAUGHTER needs to hear her mother say that she is beautiful and that she is a confident woman. Girls will mirror what their mothers do and say.

    Hi! i was 19 when i fell pregnant with my son, so i am also a young mummy! Please believe your partner when he tells you that you are beautiful, hes telling the truth!! Society seems so intent on crushing our spirit but we mustnt let it win. That stomach grew your gorgeous little girl, every single stretch mark is a badge of honour. I have major body image issues so i know how you feel, i really do. Just remember, all of those girls of your age who you compare yourself to… well, i bet they havent had children. <3

    I just read your updated post first and then this one. First, your daughter is beautiful! Second, you can totally see a difference. Keep up with the great work! That is great that your boyfriend is so supportive.
