365 Days & About That Many Pounds

Can you believe that my due date was exactly a year ago today? If at that time someone had informed me that I'd have to wait another 6 days for Baby G's arrival, I may have socked thiem in the nose.

It's true. I was 230lbs and desperate to give birth.

Six days later was the more important day of my life & marked the beginning of my new life. What a surreal year it's been. I can hardly remember looking like this:


PS. I think I rocked the massive belly pretty well, all things considered.
PPS. A giveaway shall be announced in the morning -- sleep tight & stay tuned!

Not only did you rock the belly but you looked beautiful with the belly.

I have a weird pregnancy question to ask, seeing as I've never been pregnant myself, forgive me if this is too personal.

After you give birth what happens to all the stretched skin and how long did it take for it to go back to somewhat normal? -Shannon O.

Haha, well, skin is pretty elastic, so it definitely tightens up again a bit, but I think most mamas would tell you that you're left with a bit of a saggy baggy tummy when it's all said and done. I lost all the baby weight by 6 months after her birth, but everything's pretty squishy :)
