9 months post-partum
It’s been 9 months since I had my beautiful little girl & while I love her with all my heart I can’t seem to accept my new body. I was 120 pounds before I got pregnant with a perfectly flat stomach. I had gestational diabetes during my pregnancy and was 180 the day I had her. I am 135 now but cannot seem to lose the mommy belly. I find myself comparing myself to all my friends that had babies and have perfectly flat stomachs & I honestly am embarrassed at times to go in to public around people who knew what I looked like before. Shopping for clothing is discouraging and frustrating. I feel like a nuisense to my boyfriend and family and can tell they are annoyed with my constant downing on myself about my body. It’s just hard to accept that this is my body now. I keep waiting for my stomach to shrink back down but some days I honestly think its only getting worse Thank you for letting me share with you ladies sometimes it feels better to get it all out.
