The beautiful Nicole Blakely with 7 month old Shane Joshua. Nicole struggled with body issues her whole life and even remembers dieting in elementary school. She felt absolutely beautiful throughout her pregnancy though and says she had never felt more comfortable in her skin. She promised herself she wouldn't allow those issues to carry with her postpartum but she has struggled with her stretch marks and new shape. She chose to participate so she could learn to not only tolerate but celebrate her new body. Nicole had a very healthy pregnancy and was able to successfully have the natural birth she dreamed of. She also wins the sister of a lifetime award. Her sister's wedding was the day before she ended up delivering her son and she didn't tell her until the reception at the end of the night that she had been in active labor the entire day! She'd been having contractions all throughout the ceremony, pictures and dancing. Shane was born in hospital about 12 hours later and all of her family was able to continue to celebrate not only the new marriage but their new addition.
