As a teenager turning into a young adult, plus being a first time mother, you lose that nice shape you use to have. I love my stomach before but after i gave birth, I was left with stretch marks, saggy boobs n a pudgy stomach. My mother told me that i ruined my body n will never get it back while others say im young n can but i question, can i really? I like size of my boobs, just not the sagging n if i work out, they go back to becoming little again. I just always thought that the benifits of after pregnancy (other than your loving baby) will be your boobs but how can i keep the nice size while lift them (other than bra) yet workout to be in shape. Is my mother right...is my body ruined?

the are called "tiger stripes" not stretch marks... you've earned your strips, and your boobs will be nice and big and full if you keep nursing

I wouldn't say your body is ruined, it's been changed. You've had a baby, it's amazing what the female body can do to bring another life into this world. Be proud of what your body has done.

As far as the saggy boobs, not a lot you can do there without surgery. Make sure you get a well supporting bra to prevent further tearing on the supporting muscles though.
