The honour of wearing my Marks (Anonymous)

I am the proud mother of a 2.5 year old boy and a 5 week old boy. My first pregnancy I got one tiny stretch mark on my left side and a slight mark on the top and bottom of my belly button, which was not noticeable at all afterward. I was so proud of that one on my side, I felt like it was the mark my precious little boy left to remind me of the time I nurtured him in my womb. I just gave birth to my second precious little boy, and he made a lot more of a mark during his stay! Here is a picture of what my belly looks like now. He stretched his brothers marks way further and added three of his own on my right side. Though I was sad that I won’t ever look the same in a bikini, this site really reminded me what an honour those marks are to carry. Some women try for years and desperately want a child but are unable, imagine what they would give to have a mark like mine. I am so blessed and honoured to have birthed two beautiful children, one natural in the hospital, and the second natural at home. They are my biggest pride and joy, and I embrace everything about being a mother….even my new body.

    thanks for your thoughtful post, you really inspired me to be more thoughtful about my marks rather than just lamenting them. my sister has been trying for a while and I know she would be grateful for marks like mine. your tummy is lovely. m
