Proof

Today in the shower, I noticed I have stretch marks.  I have stretch marks!  I didn't get them with Benjamin, and after that pregnancy, I was relieved to have my old body back within a short time.

Now, the idea of getting my old body back is scary.  I instantly felt grateful for these stretch marks.  I hope they never fade.  I like the proof on my body that I carried Lydia for 34 weeks, that Lydia was in fact here.

  1. I worked so hard not to get stretch marks. What I wouldn't give to have them now. Working out a few weeks after having Sadie, half of me wanted to keep my tummy, and the other half wanted it to disappear before someone asked me about my baby.

  2. Apparently those were not actually stretch marks. And whatever they were, they went away pretty quickly. Boo.

  3. I'm so sorry about that! :( And I'm sorry I comment as I go, and I might not be totally up to date on things. I'm kind of reliving your grief as I read, though. <3 <3 <3
