Anton, Emily and Donovan

I had just turned 24 when we found out that I was pregnant. It was a pretty easy pregnancy - I worked up until a few weeks before he was born. I was also lucky in that I didn't get any strechmarks. The picture of me in the white dress was taken of me on my due date, and our beautiful little boy came one week later. People couldn't believe how big I got because I had always been such a tiny woman. Our son weighed 8 lbs. 12 oz. - a big boy! I gained 45 lbs. while pregnant, and I lost a lot of it while nursing, and the last 20 lbs. left when I stopped nursing.

The thing that bothers me the most about my stomach now is the wrinkly skin from being stretched out for 41 weeks. But I feel so blessed to have my son that I would do it all again in a heartbeat.
