I've been getting pretty down on myself about how much weight I've gained, and how terrible my skin looks... this site showed me that I am not a freak, that all these changes are normal and healthy. I've been especially worried about my stretch marks, thinking that they were the worst in the world. In fact, I always expect my midwife to comment about them or something (she never does, of course). Turns out, my stretch marks are pretty run-of-the-mill.

Check it out... theshapeofamother.com

I both like and really dislike the site.

I get annoyed with the women that post before and after baby pictures and they look nearly the same.

Pregnancy made huge changes to my body and its depressing to see someone woman that is 5lbs over her prebaby weight with a single stretch mark.

The saggy, heavily marked stomachs and breasts make me feel at home though!

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?
