I had six children during my 20s. I was pregnant and/or breastfeeding for over 12 years. It’s amazing to have my body back, even if it’s not the body it used to be. I have lumps, bumps, curves, dimples and stretchmarks. Parts of me sag, droop, bounce and sway. I try really hard to see my body as ‘different to’ rather than worse than it once was.

I had 5 natural deliveries, 1 caesarian and 1 late miscarriage. My children self-weaned between 1.5 and 3 years of age. At times I felt like I hadn’t slept for years… Now that the youngest is four, life is hectic in another way.

    Wow I think u actually look good, and you might think this a little wierd but I like the freckles and moles on your body. I’ve always thought that that was pretty on women especially on their stomachs.
    silly I kno but it be those little things that can make a person attractive to others.

    You should have said you had seven children. I’m so sorry for your loss and so happy for your blessings! So many blessings! Wow! You are my hero!
