First Time Mother (Anonymous)

Dear Everyone: I am a new mother of a beautiful baby boy (6 lbs 10 oz 19.5 in). He is such a blessing. However, we had only been married 11 months when I got pregnant, and shortly after our ultrasound at five months, we found out he was getting deployed to Iraq. He left one week before delivery. As difficult as this time has been for me, Traice is such a welcome addition to my life. True, my breasts are saggy and the stretch marks on my hips and breasts are kinda ugly, but I think he is worth it. I would take the marks over never getting to meet my son. Thanks to all of you that had the courage to post to this site. It gave me strength as my due date drew near.

    Wow, you look amazing, especially in the pictures on the bed. I hope you sent those to your man overseas! Talk about building morale!

    Your little boy is adorable. Congrats on everything and please thank your husband for his service.
