Having a baby changes your body with loose skin & stretch marks but more importantly it changes your life. Its easy to focus on these things as you grow to grow a child.
Nobody is unscathed from pregnancy. I took this photo for my upcoming postpartum plan. I’m not going to pretend it’s extreme but when I sit you can see my loose skin at the bottom of my stomach🤷🏼♀️ & I am flexing.
I’ve posted pictures before leaning forward showing loose skin but as you can see in the photo it’s there when I just sit too!
There’s nothing I can do about it as I have had 4 kids and my core has stretch to the max for them including a set of twins.
I may not get stretch marks on my stomach but I do get more & more stretch marks on my thighs,hips and booty every pregnancy.❤️
Now can we just label these things as normal and focus on what changed our lives more… that precious baby.
When you are discouraged I want you to think about your child’s laugh, think about how excited you get when they learn something new for the first time. Think about a good memory with them. Would you ever want your child to think about his/herself the way you think about yourself sometimes?
It breaks your heart right? Think about the deep love our Father in Heaven has for you and the trust he had placed in you to care for your precious baby.It’s a miracle the way women conceive and have children in the first place.❤️
Raise your head with pride because you, my friend, have a power that is beyond any story stretch marks and loose skin can tell about you.
Stop comparing, we aren’t all the same and when you feel down focus on what you DO have! I bet you would NEVER trade back your baby for your “pre baby” body because in the end you know you got the better end of the deal with having your amazingly cute child of God.
Your individual worth is unmeasurable. So love yourself Mamas and give yourself a pat on the back for being such a Bad A🤩.
