My Baby Belly
When I was pregnant with my sweet son (now 3) I got ginormous. My skin felt like it was going to burst, I actually had nightmares of giving birth through a skin explosion. The result are bold stretch marks covering my tummy. I never really thought much of them because honestly, once he was out, all I cared about in regards to them was that they stopped itching. One day, when my son was about 4 months old, he grabbed my t-shirt when I picked him up and my mother commented on the “mess” of my stomach. My cousin who was 4 at the time said “Auntie, if it wasnt for that so-called mess, we wouldnt have sweet baby K here with us now” Wow, talk about a child putting it all into perspective!
