Nice site. Thanks for sharing.
To those who are startled by this candid look at the way most maternal bodies look, don’t let it scare you away from pregnancy. I would have been a little icked before I had my children, but pregnancy and mothering has a way of altering your perceptions. I am vain. Very petty and very vain. I have always loved the way my toned, flat stomach looked in a bikini. But while my belly grew (and grew, and grew!*) I was delighted by the signs and sort of relieved that I didn’t always feel the need to hide the bulge or hold my tummy in. Now, three years after my youngest was born, I’m starting to see myself as a bikini hanger again, but for 6 years, I’ve been completely content playing the role of bountiful fertility godess. Oh, and I gained a cup size, and it seems the titty fairy is letting me keep them.
*I gained over 60 pounds during my second pregnancy and weighed in slightly under a deuce on the morning of his birth. Happily, no stretch marks!
