This is your time. You’ve created a LIFE! Celebrate it. Yes, you feel like a horse. But realize, you look gorgeous to all of the rest of us. For those that have been there, we felt it too, but still, the sense of life fluttering in your stomach. Be proud. This is natural. Our bodies are built to have babies and built to go right back to where they were before or even better.
Some of us only get to do this once. Some women never want or get to. While it will take a few months for you to get your body back, we promise, it does go back if you’re active and watching what you eat. (And drinking your water and getting any sleep you can.)
Celebrate your body for what it is accomplishing. Other cultures revere motherhood so much more than our own. While others keep it hidden and feel it’s unclean. Forget about them all. Enjoy who you are. Enjoy this phase your body is going through. And most of all realize you are creating something truly unique and wonderful.
You made a baby!
