It’s been 2 weeks since the birth of my daughter via c-section and I’m pretty happy with how I’ve been healing. My pain is way down from last week and I’m able to take longer and longer walks. The scar looks great and I can finally take legitimate showers without help. My hormones are still a bit out of wack, but I’m definitely feeling more like myself.
Perhaps my favorite thing about this healing process has been how pleased I am with my body post baby.
So many women out there talk about how they can’t wait to get back in the gym to shed the extra weight or how they are bummed about stretch marks, and that’s all fine but, I genuinely love how my body looks now.
I love that I still have the Linea Nigra going vertically down my whole abdomen. I love that my boobs are a little saggier since I’ve been pumping my breast milk. I love that my belly still hangs out a little. And I love the scar going horizontally across me to show how my Lilly came into this world. I weighed myself the other day for the first time and honestly didn’t even care about the number that flashed on the scale.
I’ve had body issues most of my life and it’s so nice to feel 100% comfortable and happy in the skin I’m in now.
I look like a mom and I think it’s my best look yet.
