Dear Shape of a Mother,
I wanted to add my photos. I had a 30 inch waist and it grew to 47 inches with my first child. I had no idea how extremely painful stretchmarks are and I feel sorry for anyone to endure the pain of them along with normal pregnancy pain.
But then the baby comes and it?s all worth it. I am a mother. I do not need to go around looking trampy in small clothes, giving the message to other women and a future daughter of mine that women are only attractive in the tightest clothes on the smallest bodies.
I am woman, I am mother, hear me roar!
