Mommy w/a story (Anonymous)

I went from the flat tummy, nicely shaped breast, no to mention a size 3. to findind out that my whole world was about to change…

9 mos. later, 70 lbs. later, a beautiful baby entered my life, forever changing it, and finally given it some meaning.. Needless to say I wasnt a size 3 anymore! I didnt start dieting, I thought that it would just fall off, lol. thats what I thought…thats not how it works. So, I began to get really depressed about this “new body”. Then, at a normal visit to the baby’s doctor, he said” she must undergo openheart surgery or not live a very long life, were talking months.” My heart sank. I hated this body, that gave me this precious life and she wasnt promised a tomorrow. How could I hate my body that had given me this is blessing?

Now shes 4 years old with a brother thats 16 mos., theyre both full of life! but, with my second pregnancy I learned you cant eat EVERYTHING!I only gained 20 lbs. I embrace every stretch mark and the saggy breasts. I earned thoses marks! I learn this is ME forever and I love myself but, I had to teach myself to do that. I just want women who have just had a baby, who feel hopeless and ugly, to look deep inside, theres the beauty and its on that tummy, those breast thats nursed your baby..

THATS BEAUTY!

    Lovely children! I’m glad you learned to love yourself – I hope your beautiful babies learn that same lesson about themselves, sooner rather than later. Best wishes!
