Body Changes.

First off, I want to let you know I got this post from Infertile Mormon Mommy, check out her blog, she's such a sweet girl, and has a beautiful baby girl also!

"A mark for every breath you took, every blink, every sleepy yawn. One for every time you sucked your thumb, waved hello, closed your eyes and slept in the most perfect darkness. One for every time you had the hiccups. One for every dream you dreamed within me.

It isn't very pretty anymore. Some may even think it ugly. That's OK. It was your home. It's where I first grew to love you, where I lay my hand as I dreamed about who you were and who you would be. It held you until my arms could, and for that, I will always find something beautiful in it."

I got up Friday morning after writing my PYHO post on Wednesday. I saw this and it immediately made me feel better. It's so true. I do love everything about my new body, like I mentioned, it's just hard sometimes. I know everyone feels this way a time or two, and that's why I felt the need to copy this from her. It really helped. It's so true. Everything that has changed with my body is because of my little girl, it know it is. While I was pregnant and really sick, my doctor would always comfort me and tell me, almost always when we sick mom, we have a healthy baby growing. Sure enough, she was and still is very healthy. I hope you know I wasn't complaining about my body the other day, I'd cut of my leg, or have my whole face covered in stretch marks if it meant I could have my baby here, safe and healthy. Believe it or not I actually have contemplated on occasion of taking a picture of my stomach. Mostly because I want a before picture, because I randomly get motivated to work out. But part of me wants to remember every little detail of my pregnancy. It still doesn't seem real. That moment where it clicks in, oh my heck I'm pregnant, oh my heck I have a baby, it still hasn't hit me yet. It seem so unreal. I'm living a fairy tale over here people. Anyway, just remember that every little change in your body after a baby, is beautiful.

Stopping by from ICLW. I LOVE this post. Embracing the new bod is an ongoing process for me. So worth it, but change is never easy, is it?

I'll be stopping back tomorrow :)
