Welcome. You can do it. I have had 4 children so I know how pregnancy can change your body in so many ways but it is all worth it. When others get you down, focus on your children. Small changes add up. The first think I noticed, even before weight loss, was that I started to have a more positive attitude and I felt better. Even that is worth it for my kiddos. So glad you are here with us!

You can do it! I had my last child at....41. I was on bedrest throughout the pregnancy. She is now 21/2 years old and the sweetest, most fun kid! I am not at my healthy weight but I remember having the same issue- with my fat stomach coming in the way...of holding the baby properly, of putting her down properly. I think I know how you feel. There are so many things we learn from our kids. One thing I have learned over and over again is to focus on the present- not the past, not the future.... just the present- this moment :) (You know what I mean-they go from crying one second to laughing the next.)
