30 weeks pregnant, baby # 3, plus size Momma (Anonymous)

This is my 30 week pregnant belly. I am a pre-pregnancy size 16/18, about 195 pounds. This is my third baby, twelfth (!) pregnancy. I am also nursing my 34 month old. Our family has suffered eight miscarraiges and one molar pregnancy, along with our two living children and this lil bun in the oven. Because of the tragedy of multiple pregnancy loss, I find my body absolutely beautiful. I would never have surgery to “correct” my sagging abdominal muscles, or to “fix up” my stretch marks, or to lift my breasts. All of those so-called imperfections are proof to myself that my body can grow and nourish a child, and in some cases, those marks are all I have left of my precious angel babies.

    In the world full of imperfections, we, mothers (and our body which brings new life in this world) is the perfect example of wonderful imperfections. Salute to all mothers and moms-to-be like me! cheers!
