The last submissions I put in were about not having any stretch marks, and a c-section recovery but baby #3 came 3 weeks overdue (and by UBAC) and weighed over 9lbs; he left his footprints when I reached about 40weeks and my fundal height crept past 43cm (it went to over 46). He came 11 months after my cesarean/childloss.
These pictures were a few weeks before birth, one during labour (an hour before birth) and one 2 months postpartum.

your body looked amazing during pregnancy(i’m miss_boots on livejournal and i have you added to my friend’s list. haha)
and you look absolutely fantastic post partum.
I read your second entry yesterday and all the replies. I just couldn’t stop crying. I can’t say I understand how you feel as I have not lost a child. But I did just have a baby nearly a month ago and I can only imagine how painful that was for you. I hope the birth of this baby has helped your healing.
I love what you said here:
“Mamas: cherish your battle wounds, your stretch marks and bellies. They are beautiful; they are the footprints that your children have left behind as were created and nourished, and while you may have days where you want to hide them, others might be looking on at the majesty that is a mother’s body and appreciating them for the art they are.”
Because of you, I am no longer embarrassed by my stretch marks. I do cherish them because they are proof positive that 5 miracles once lived inside my body and were nourished, protected and loved by me. That’s nothing to be ashamed of.
