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.
