My sister and I went to Victoria’s Secret during one of our many power walks through the mall…trying to induce labor! While she was busy slipping on darling little neglege, I opted towards the most rediculous bra top I could find! I only gained 12 pounds while I was pregant and my son was 9 of that. I did a great job of maintaining my weight although I did get stretch marks on my stomach. After my husband and I separated I was quite self-concious about letting someone other than my son’s father see my tummy. I’m now expecting my second baby with a wonderful man. I learned that if you can carry yourself with confidence and are with someone who really cares about you, those little details will be overlooked. I am happy with my body now even though it’s starting to get the early bump on the bottom! My boyfriend will come up behind me and just hold me and rub my tummy and tell me how excited he is about our baby being in my tummy. The beauty of a child will make anyone forget the physical changes that happened during pregnancy.
