The Love of my Life (Anonymous)

I was 16 when I found out I was pregnant. It took me half a second to decide I was going to keep and raise this child. I fell in the love the first time I heard his heart beat, back when he was just a little peanut on the screen. It was a pretty easy pregnancy, oddly I wasn’t scared. Horrible labor, it took hours. I was poked for an IV 9 times. Poked for an epidural 4 times, which only lasted for 2 hours. I was on muscle relaxers for 2 days and couldn’t even pick my own leg up. But it was all worth it the second I saw my baby boy. 7 pounds 2 ounces and 19 1/4 inches. He is the most beautiful boy I have ever seen. I would go through it all again in a second for him. During pregnancy I got stretch marks all over. My whole belly wrapped around to my back. My arms and breasts, and even the back of my knees. Until recently I thought I’d never be attractive again. But with the help of a woman I met on the internet, Amy, I see that I don’t have to be afraid to be proud of my body. Her courage helped me to show you all my post pregnancy body.

    Aww, I got teary eyed reading this.
    I am glad I inspired you.
    You are a wonderful mommy and your baby is a doll.
    And you are quite beautiful.

    You look BEAUTIFUL! Amy is absolutely right. You know our bodies shouldn’t be meat for the menfolk (I’m such a dork I know lol) but instead (and I’m being serious here) our bodies are a Temple for God. Our bodies are beautiful. They’re made in the image of God. Your stretchmarks… they’ll fade, but you will always have a beautiful little boy to love.

    God bless your little family.
