Mom-of-four Chelsea admitted she thinks “four is probably it” after struggling to cope with her body changes in her most recent pregnancy.
The MTV star, who is also mom to Aubree, 11, Watson, 4, and Layne, 2, said she struggled to snap back from her fourth birth.
She told inTouch: “The plan now is to be done. I mean, it’s hard when you’re looking at a teeny tiny newborn and your heart is just like, you know.
“I love babies so much, but I think four is probably it. I’m 99 per cent on that, so we’ll see.”

Detailing her struggles postpartum, Chelsea added: “I felt so insecure after all my other babies and like just seeing other people’s bodies, it seems like other people just like snap right back and it was confusing.
“This time I just didn’t feel that way. I felt confident and I feel like I know my body and like what the process it goes through is, you know.
“At first, you know, it’s not the body that you’re used to seeing and that’s OK and you don’t even have to love it.
“It’s just part of the process and it doesn’t stay like that.”

Chelsea also discussed the public portrayal that a tummy should snap back immediately after having a child, and felt that educating her fans was “important.”
She said: “I was hearing from a lot of women that, you know, some women didn’t know what your body looked like right after birth. If they don’t have any babies, they don’t know that you’re still gonna have a belly for a minute.
“Sharing just the whole process felt important to me. And I felt confident enough and secure enough in myself to do that this time. Whereas the other times I was also feeling insecure so I can relate to that also.”
The MTV star preached body positivity, adding: “I feel like just knowing that this is just a process and you aren’t going to snap right back and being OK with not loving the way that you look and just knowing that being appreciative of your body and, you know, everything that it just did — [like] make sweet little babies.

“I mean, you can be appreciative of your body without loving the way that it looks. You know, I think there is a difference and being able to know that and feel that, I think, is important.”
Chelsea posted candid photos of her tummy postpartum earlier this week while holding an Instagram Q&A session with her followers.
The star gave birth in January, introducing her three kids to their new sibling after an extended time in hospital.
Chelsea revealed that her fourth child had come a little earlier than expected and both mom and baby needed extra attention.
The Teen Mom star shared video of her daughter wrapped up tight, and Chelsea captioned the video: “Glow bug for a couple of days. Part of coming a little early.”
Walker was meant to come in February, Chelsea revealed last year.
