I have always been insecure of my body ever since my teen years. I come from a family that have the “hourglass” shape. I was always told to hide things, that only my husband should see. Shortly after I got married, my husband and I found out we were expecting our first child. At 205lbs, I became even more insecure with the way I looked. I peaked 217lbs during my 23 week of pregnancy, and every now and then I take a good look at my body. My hips are wider, because I am carrying mainly on my hips and my belly has stretch marks. It wasn’t until I had a conversation with my mother that I realized, I love my round pregnant belly…stretch marks and all! My mother could feel ashamed about me showing it but I just don’t care anymore. I am growing my son and I’ll take every change that comes along with my body. He is worth it in the end.
