i am 27 years and have 2 children. my daughter is 3 and i gave birth to her naturally and she weighed 8 lbs 5 oz. i was in labor for 20 hours with any pain meds.i bounced back so quickly! i loved it. then my husband and i decided to have another baby. we were blessed with our sweet little boy in july! i was in labor for over 3 days and finally after pushing for hours my doctor told me a c-section was the only way he would come. this was the scariest experience. I was passing out and getting sick the entire time. he was 9 lbs and 22 inches long! i was able to see my sweet angel for 2 minutes and was in recovery for 5 hours until i saw him again. my son is 3 months old now and my tummy still hurts every now and then. i did get stretch marks with my last pregnancy but i love them. they are a reminder of what my body did. i love how soft my tummy is now and that my daughter finds comfort by laying on my tummy! I am so proud to be a mother. i find my strength through their eyes , they are my sweet angels! so all you moms be proud of what you look like! look at what our bodies are able to do! we are pretty crafty… we make people!!
