So Thankful for My Boys (Anonymous)

I am 27 and this is my 3rd pregnancy. My 1st son died at age 2 last year, in his sleep. We never found out why, he was and still is perfect. Life has taken on a whole new value and worth. So this pregnancy I am trying to take care of myself the best I can, and am going to give birth naturally. I have a 20-month old son and am due 9/10/08. My 1st son would be 4 this December. Pregnancy is a state of health and beauty–I just love it and feel great! Due to my multiracial background, my skin is just tan enough to hide the stretch marks postpartum. Chasing after the boys and breastfeeding slims me down quick, although I do tend to gain 40 pounds with each kiddo. All my weight goes to hips and thighs.

    My heart hurt when I read your story. I’m sorry for your loss. My stretch marks seem trivial compared to the fact I have my children,while some women have lost theirs.
