The beautiful Brooke Nelson with 8 month old Tyler. Brooke had a pretty healthy pregnancy other than some swelling throughout her third trimester and developing PUPPS. She had to be induced at 39 weeks but was already dilated and effaced so had a quick progression to her vaginal delivery. Brooke lives in Birmingham, AL and even though she's accustomed to 100+ degree summers she wasn't comfortable in shorts because she was self conscious of her thighs. One day her mother took her to finally buy a pair of shorts and after Brooke tried on several pairs and broke down in tears she told her, "Brooke, sometimes you just have to put on a pair of shorts and go live your live". Brooke has taken this phrase and applied to not only her body image but her pregnancy and so many areas of her life.
