Your Best Asset

Though moms may believe their figures have gone south after they bear children, most say the baby makes up for any physical flaw and becomes a woman's best asset.

#3, just to let you know my hubby is perfectly happy with my body. After all, it's not all about how it looks, it's what you can do with it ;-). I had my son at 21, and 5 years later I actually feel more beautiful and secure in myself than I did before. Little stretch marks and all. I'm 30 weeks pregnant, and while I have felt many other things, ugly or unattractive is not one of them. Keep your head up Amber! My good friend tried for 3 years to get pregnant. When she finally did, it was with twins. She ended up on bed rest for 10 weeks at the end, but now she has two beautiful little boys who are completely healthy at 16 months.

I will take all of those bad things if it meant I could carry and birth a child. Still trying and waiting for one to not only take, but stick around!

Wow, I was pretty excited about my pregnancy, even though I knew I'd gain weight, but now after reading this I feel depressed. I guess all that matters is a womans body.

Sorry, was this supposed to be helpful to someone? I feel 20x worse after reading this article. Pointless and depressing.

This scares me to death. If all this has the potential to happen, how in the world can we expect our husbands to retain attraction for us???

This was a useless "article." Stock images that show the ideal, not the reality, made this T&A parade a depressing experience for those with actually flat rears and saggy boobs. Thanks for nothing.

All true! However, it would have been nice to have photos of real postpartum women accompanying the text, instead of models who do not have any stretchy, saggy bits at all.
