This web site has really opened my eyes to see what a blessing being able to carry and deliver a child really is. I want to share my story and pictures because I have to admit, I was very upset about my body after a few months went by after delivering my child in August of 04′. While pregnant I stayed very active and loved my pregnancy. I only gained 23 pounds, but after delivering I gained more weight. It was not hard for me to shed the pounds, but after nursing my daughter my breasts became, well, I don’t really have breasts any longer. I was very upset with this fact and started to feel like less of a woman, even though my husband told me that it wasn’t my breasts that made me the woman that I am. One day it just clicked with me: the fact that I nurtured my daughter while she was in my womb and that I was able to nuture her afterwards is why I am a woman and I need to be proud of that. I no longer cover up and I am very proud of my daughter and the changes my body went through for her.
