I stumbled on this link almost by accident on a pregnancy message board. I’m 27 and pregnant with my first baby. I’m excited. But I also just found out that I will most likely need a c-section. I’ve always had a flat belly until now, so the baby belly was a bit of a surprise. At first, I just felt fat, but now I feel like I look pregnant. My husband keeps telling me how much more beautiful I look now that I’m pregnant. It makes me smile and realize that I’m very lucky to have a man who realizes that beauty isn’t just what he sees on tv. I’m scared though about the scar the c-section will leave and if I’ll ever get back to pre-pregnancy weight…I wasn’t very thin to begin with. I’ve always just referred to myself as curvy and act like I love my body, but sometimes I wish that I looked more like a movie star or model. I hope that I can learn to love my body more, especially now that its going through this wonderous process of making a baby.
