1 year postpartum
My little girl just turned one a week ago. She is so beautiful, funny and smart. I can’t believe she is mine!
When I first got pregnant I had come to terms with the fact that my body would be ruined, based on family history. I would have a saggy belly, stretch marks, deflated breasts but I knew it would all be worth it.
During my pregnancy, my daughters father and I decided it wasn’t going to work out. That is when my fears returned. I gained 60 pounds while pregnant. I thought nobody would ever be attracted to me again. I was completely devastated about the whole situation. Once I had my little girl I really had no time to feel sorry for myself. She was extremely colic for the first 6 months and would only sleep cradled next to me while walking. So I walked and walked and walked….
A year later, my stretch marks have faded, I weigh 20 pounds less than before I got pregnant, I got my license, bought a van, I’ve met someone new and starting my dream job in 1 week. It’s amazing how things can change in a year. I’m so proud of myself and thank my lucky stars everyday.
