let me start by saying that i was nowhere near perfect before i got pregnant with my first son, Gavin, at the young age of 16. I was not fat, but not ‘model’ material. Well, 2 and half years and two babies later, i definately have a belly i do not like. I have felt, up until recently, that i was disgusting, unattractive, fat, saggy, etc….and 19 who feels this way? But then one day i had an epiphany, and now i try to look at myself realistically. i am not a movie star, i am not a model, i am a mother. and although i have tons of stretch marks, scars, saggy skin, saggy boobs, i have the two most wonderful little boys that make up for it, and then some. i just wanted to share some photos of my postpartum belly, although i had my youngest almost 8 months ago, my belly looks as if i just had him yesterday. I hope this gives some other mothers (especially us young ones) some encouragement, and selfesteem.
