I found your site when I was 5 months pregnant with my first child earlier this year. I was so deathly afraid of my body being “ruined” once I had my baby, so I looked through the pictures and stories at your site to get an idea of what I might look like. It really helped me realize that gaining weight, getting stretch marks, or droopy skin were not important once my baby was here.

    You look great! If you dont mind me asking, how much did you gain during your pregnancy??

    Cute jammies–cute tattoo! Cute stretchmarks. Beautiful.

    Wow! You look so good!
    I feel inspired now to have this first baby now, and bring back the old Jenny body back soon in spring.
    Thank you for cheering me up.

    Thank you! I thought I was so huge and “blah” looking…but really I only gained 30lbs. I am currently 8lbs away from pre-pregnancy weight. those last few lbs are so hard to come off!

    you look really good, but i was wondering if you used any kind of lotion to prevent stretch marks while you were pregnant. i am 5 months with my first baby and i am 19 years old, scared to death about my body baing ruined. please write me back and also did you work out during your pregnancy??
