I wish to remain anonymous, but I felt inspired to contribute.
These pictures I am submitting are of me at 25 weeks pregnant with my 2nd child.
The stretch marks are from my first pregnancy.
I had a c-section, so the skin is still saggy where my scar is.
I lost about 50 lbs from my pre-pregnancy weight after my first child was born, then got pregnant again when my first child was 13 months old.
Depsite all my stretch marks and sagging skin, I still love my pregnant body. I realize that it’s in the process of creating a miracle. And even after the baby is here, the marks on my body will be a reminder of the two miracles that I have created. My body is that of a mother. And for that, it is beautiful.
