I am 16 weeks pregnant and already have had major changes occur physically. My breasts have grown an entire cup size and I was already a 36D to begin with. They are uncomfortably large and I assume will only get bigger. I plan on breastfeeding (God willing) so I can only imagine what these puppies will look like this time next year! I also got horrible stretch marks when I went through puberty so my hopes arent high on not getting them through this. I love this little one with all my heart. I am still a woman, however, and cant help but stress over my appearance. I came across this website and truly feel blessed to have done so. What a WONDERFUL place this is. To be able to unabashdley share our thoughts, feelings, even PICTURES of and about our bodies before and during the awesome miracle of motherhood is so very empowering. Yes, our bodies are beautiful. Yes, they are amazing in EVERY sense of the word. No, I will not be ashamed of the changes in my body but rather, I will embrace this new ‘me’. Im going to be a mommy with one heluva mommy body. Thank you all ladies for your encouragment and bravery. In a few more months you will all be seeing a few candid shots of yours truly…..and the little bundle of joy I call my heart…..Theres no question in my mind, now, that it will be worth it. Thank you again ladies. Im so lucky to have found this site!!
