I Love My Body More Now Than I Did Before (Anonymous)

May 29, 2007

Before having a baby, I would always fuss over little things and I hated my body. Now, I love my body more than ever! I love my stretch marks, my breasts, my dimply bottom… I love it all. And I love, especially, seeing all of the bodies (so different!) on here, and so beautiful! To start off, I am twenty-two years old and this was my first pregnancy. My delivery was pretty awful. Thank God I went into the whole thing completely naive. My little girl got stuck in the birth canal because she was posterior, my epidural didn’t work, I ended up with a huge episiotomy from vagina to butthole. Then, the medication they gave me for pain led to a wonderful romp in the E.R. just six days postpartum. Bad things aside, I now have a wonderful daughter who is now five months old (almost six) and I have been breastfeeding her the entire time. I love her more than anything! She’s worth every ounce of pain and every inch of stretch mark! Now, I am actually lighter than I was pre-partum, but my body is completely different. My breasts are larger, my butt is dimplier, and my hips are wider…I may be lighter, but nothing fits that used to!

    Thank you, Katie! :) It’s amazing how I didn’t appreciate my tiny little figure prepregnancy! It took a baby to appreciate what an amazing body I have–to create such a beautiful child!
