Mum-of-four shows how much body has changed over the years with candid pics
It's no secret that having a baby changes you in lots of ways.
You learn new things, see things differently and get washed over by a new wave of love.
But pregnancy also changes your body and the way you see yourself.

Sarah Nicole Landry boasts more than two million followers on Instagram and she's known for sharing body positive advice – but her recent pictures touch on the topic of motherhood.
The proud mum recently shared snaps of herself taken at different points in her life to show how bodies constantly evolve.
One shows her at her heaviest weight, another reveals what she looked like after she shed a few stone and the third exposes what she looks like now in a bikini.
Sarah looks different in each picture – but one thing is also clear.
Every image shows the same person, with the same qualities and the same smile.
Writing on Instagram, Sarah said: "Change isn’t always comfortable or easy. Perhaps because our whole lives we are driven to resist it.
"When I was 12 my parents decided to sell our house and build a new one.
"I refused to go see it. I didn’t want to move. I didn’t want change. I didn’t want to acknowledge that it was happening. With or without my stamp of approval.
"Eventually, we did move. And that new home? That’s the home I consider as my childhood home.
"It became the one I made the most tangible memories in. The one that took me back in whenever I needed it.
"I am so glad I didn’t sit in my own resistance and bitterness forever, or I’d miss out on all the good stuff that came after change.
"But change isn’t always comfortable or easy. Sometimes it’s exciting and unexpected. Sometimes it’s terrifying and predictable.
"So as my bodily home changes from one to another, I remember the memories we have made as I allow myself to be open to the idea that perhaps, the best is yet to come."
More than 27,000 people have liked the post – and Sarah's followers said it's "great".
People admire how she shares her story so openly, and is honest about her past struggles with body image.
One person replied: "I just want to recognize that although you post about difficult topics frequently, it doesn't make it any less difficult.
"You are a cycle breaker who is truly making a difference in the world. Thank you."
Another wrote: "Maybe all these could go on a book. I love Instagram and how people can access posts like this with just their phone, but I just want to keep so many of them in paper and ink. I truly love the way you write."
Meanwhile, a third commented: "As a very recent new mom, you're such an inspiration to me in how to love the changes in my body – thank you."
