Touched by an angel, left with scars of love (Megan)

June 12, 2007

I am 20 years old, and as most girls generally are- i was always my own worst enemy in the self esteem department. often trying to change the way i look, over exercising and going on stringent diets etc… but it was only until i fell pregnant with my beautiful daughter now do i realise how beautiful and fertile my body is- very womanly and sexy, to be able to create, is truely a miracle. Anyway.. you really change the way you see yourself as a person once you have had a baby, you become more accepting of yourself. Well i have! :) despite the minor stretchies and the extra kilograms ( i gained 20 throughout my pregnancy) lost 12 kgs of it after my gorgeous, 3680 gram bub was delivered.. (8.2 lbs) and i feel fantastic! breastfeeding is doing wonders for the both of us :)

    Wow! You look awesome! What an incredible picture you have of your baby being born. According to the dates on the pictures, is the top pic an “after” photo? If it is, it looks even better than my before! You are a beautiful mother and you have a beautiful baby. Congratulations on your precious miracle.

    Id’e just like to add afew comments to my post, thanks for you compliments too by the way i really appreciate it. Its so nice to have this wonderful website (thanks Bonnie, you really are a legend) where i can relate with other mothers and bare it all! lol i’m not really modest as you can tell. Anyway about the dates, my old camera use to need constant date setting, and the default date was always dated “2005″ unless i changed it to the appropriate year which was 2006 and 2007 when i was actually pregnant, the first picture at the top is me before pregnancy (which is why i have no stretch marks on my abdomen and my breasts are fairly small) they are huge now! and will be very saggy once breastfeeding is over. lol. uh I had my Daughter Danielle on May 1st 2007. 2 Weeks overdue, she just didn’t want to come! I was induced, laboured for 11 hours which was horrific,i was attached to all sorts of crap, fetal moniter, contraction moniter and a drip! so getting up and moving around was a big effort through contractions with no break. Danielle turned complete posterior and decided to tilt her head back onto my sacrum. I was in hell. they asked me for a C section. I screamed “get her outta me” and that was that. I had failure to progress after 11 hours. i only got to 6 cms unfortunately. And i often think to myself if i was in labour 150 years ago i would have died.

    Megan, check out ICAN for information and support regarding emotional (and physical) healing from a c-section. :)

    Megan, the expression on your baby’s face while you’re kissing her is priceless. She looks profoundly peaceful, happy, and secure in your love.

    Amazing pictures! You’re both really beautiful, and I especially I love the photo of you kissing your baby! What a strong bond you seem to have!

    What struck me the most though, is that you look exactly like my mother when she was around 19-20 years old. It’s almost scary! Maybe we’re long lost sisters. :)
