Thank You (Anonymous)

First I want to say thank you to all the women who have posted on this site. It is not easy to take pictures of your body and show others. My body image is something I have struggled with for years. I have two children, 5 and 9 months old. I would like to have one more, but I am scared to see how my body would end up looking. I know compared to other women my body does not seem as bad, but it is something I really struggle with. After seeing this site it makes me feel like I am not alone. Thanks again.

    Sweetie, you rock the bikini.

    wow, how do you not have any stretch marks? you’re so lucky you’re stomach is flat after two kids. I think you’d look fine after a third. Maybe I’ll have the courage to post my picture someday. But I have one nine month old and I definitely don’t look as good as you!

    If I looked like you, I would never complain about my body again…you look great. You are very blessed to have such a nice body and without stretch marks. I am scarred for life and very depressed. You are one of the lucky ones.. remember that.

    First of all, you look awesome, and second of all, this is really weird because I have a five year old and a 9 month old, and the pic of your youngest has the same onesie as mine had! I don’t know about you, but even though I’ve had two kids, I feel more comfortable in my own skin now than I did before kids and it looks like you do too….even though you look like you never had any kids!! (lol!)

    Oh my you’re quite beautiful and your children are just lovely. I just want to squeeze your little guy. He’s so cute!

    You look wonderful! If you’ve had two and look this amazing, I’m sure three will be a snap. Thanks for posting.

    You remind me of me…you dont from what I can tell have a stretch mark, and belly is flat, your gorgeous! I have 2 kids, 3 yrs, and 15 months. I want another baby too, but my body now is the least of my worries, these kids I have are worth everything my body goes through…just remember that!! Your beautiful, no reason to worry about how you look, but I do understand!!

    You look beautiful! I am 4 months post partum and would die to have your belly! I know what you mean though, its not how everyone else feels about it, its how you feel. You look fantastic after 2 kids. have a 3rd, you’ll bounce right back.

    We have very similar bodies. I have the same small patch of loose, wrinkly skin above my belly button, and I am extremely self conscious about it. I want a second child, but I too am afraid of how much “worse” my body will look, especially after breast feeding.
    I know that I am really fortunate compared to a lot of mothers, which makes it really hard to talk about my struggles with body image, because of responses like “I would kill to look like you-stop complaining.”
    Thanks so much for sharing. After seeing your photos, I realize that I may be being too hard on myself, because my first thought was that you look fantastic!
