Age: 21

Child: 3 weeks old

January 2011
Plans are moving along, Just ordered my wedding dress and invites, had a wonderful weekend away with my fiance. Next week, got confimation that everything was ordered. End of the week I didnt feel right. (Let the fun start) I took a pregnancy test and it was postitve! So many thoughts run through my mind, “not ready, cant do this, why now, not me, Im scared, I dont want this!” I was so scared I ened up calling an abortion help line. I felt a little better after talking with someone, but still unsure. That whole week I felt sick. I think it was the fact I just found out.

April 2011
A few months since find out I was pregnant, Im very happy. Going for my first ultrasound soon, and cant wait to finally see my baby. I found, besides drinking alot of water for my ultrasound and having to pee really bad, it was amazing! As the session was ending, the tech said there is a “third leg”. From being in awe of everything that was going on my responce to that was ” omg it has a deformity!!” Not thinking “IT’S A BOY!” :)

July 2011
So I was supposed to get married this month. But I ddint want to while being pregnant. I want to fit into my dress. So we are waiting until next july.

October 2011
My due date: Oct. 1st.
I went into false labor on the 1st. Ended up going into labor on the 3rd at 7:30am, got to the hospital at 9am. I was only 1-2cm dialated, I asked for demerol. Around noon I think the Dr. checked me and I was about 4cm. She broke my water(that was a wird feeling) Then they got me to walk to the delivery room, gave me some laughing gas. They checked me again I was about 6-7cm. I know I was in pain but I dont remember the pain… Then feeling the need to push they checked me again. I was ready to have this baby. It all went by so fast for me. The last feeling I remember is a burning feeling and… then our baby was here! Cant believe I did it. He was born at 3:01pm and 7lbs 6.8oz.

3 Weeks Post Partum
Im loving life!! I may be in need for sleep! But I wouldnt change a thing! I love our little boy! But looking at my body, it has taken some beating. I gained about 40 pounds… I have lots about 30 pounds since having my baby. There is days I feel down, looking they way I do since my body is changing again. When I do look at myself in the mirror I try to think about what I did, I created life. Im proud of what I was able to do, knowing there is women out there who would love to be able to give birth to a baby.

    Good for you staying positive mama! You are gorgeous and do not let yourself or the media or anyone else tell you different. :) It took me a lot longer than 3 weeks to be okay with my body, and I still have 20 lbs to lose before I’m in my pre pregnancy state, and I’m 13 months pp. But hey, stress will do that, and my daughter much like your son is to you, 100% worth it!

    Congratulations on a lovely healthy baby boy, and a soon to be wedding!

    Congrats for your little boy :)

    You’re only three weeks post-partum, don’t worry your body will change a lot more, mine took 12 months to get back to exactly what it was before giving birth. I know it’s long but it’s slowly regaining its original shape day after day, and suddenly you look at yourself and realize “yes it’s back!”.
    Enjoy your little bundle of joy.

    You look a lot like me and I am not disgusted by you the way I am by myself. It shows me that you look lovely and I probably do too and just need to learn to love and accept my new look!
