IT'S NOT HOW YOU FALL, IT'S HOW YOU GET BACK UP.
I'll be honest, my body was always quite awkward until AFTER I had my baby! For some reason, it shifted my body into a more proportional flow! So ladies, do not become concerned about the after mom body because it is a flattering figure! I did however get stretch marks on my belly but after a few years they are very minimal and not that noticeable. Even so, you brought the most important person in this world here safely. You are a vessel. You are safety. You are an example of unconditional love. Those marks mean that you are all these, and that is worth more than anything!
Be positive about your body image! For thankfully everyone has a different perspective of what makes us beautiful :) my perspective is that YOU are beautiful!
