How different do you look?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

From when you were younger and didn't have kids?

Do do you look your age?

Do you think you look like a mom.?

I'm 17, I've had quite a few people, even on here guess that I was older, but I don't really know what age I look like, i just always assume I look my age or slightly older. Looking at older pictures I think I look my age in pictures where I was 12, but when I look at pictures from when I was 14 I think I do look a little older than my friends did at that point.

I don't think my looks have changed a whole lot, no matter what pictures i look at , my face always seems to look the same, even ones from when I was three. So I think the only part of my looks that changed when I had dd was my body and the way I dress. (basically I no longer where skinny jeans, and band t-shirts with a hoodie over everything, with my face covered in eyiner, mascsra and black eye shadow, which is basically what I use to live in.)

I do think I look like a mom. but then again that might have something to do with the fact that any time we go any where i dont even carry a purse any more, in place of that I have a winnie the pooh diaper bag on my shoulder, a bottle in my hand and a baby on my hip, lol.

But after I put a picture in a guess my age post the other day, I had several women guessing my age to be any where between 24 and 35. It made me wonder if I really just don't look my age, and If other women think they look tried or think that they do or don't look their age.

Please excuse any typos, I am Mobile and my touch screen and autocorrect have a mind of their own, and hate me.

Eta: the questions are whether are not you think you look you are, whether or not you think you look like a mom, and how different you look compared to when you were younger (meaning have you always looked the same or did you drastically change)

I looked good back then, now I'm inked up and look like a rebel of a teen...always a plus even though I'm 26. I'm not complaining... I have gained weight through out the years which is a huge negative.. but I'm workin' on it. :)

i basically look the same...my boobs got smaller after stopping BF'ing but thats about it. the rest of my body/clothes/hair/style is the same as it was before i had my son.

I'm 24. I look pretty much the same I guess. I was much prettier as a teen.

You're 17? Wow, I would have assumed early to mid-30s.

I don't think my face has changed much since I was 18.

This is me when I was 19 years old, a full decade before I had children:

This is me last week, age 43, with three kids under my belt:

Yeah, I'd say there's a difference.

I would have guessed you in late or mid twenties.

I am in my mid thirties. I look older since having kids, but not much older than 25. I have some great genetics on my side though. I don't look much different from my 8th grade or senior photos. My face is less round though.
