Stretchmarks? No. They're love marks

Today an acquaintance of mine stopped by to see my new son. She wasn't invited but I was ok with the visit at first... About a minute into her visit she put her hand on my belly, jiggled my stomach and laughed. When I showed her that I was uncomfortable with what she just did, she went on to tell me something even more offensive about my new figure. That was very hurtful to say the least. Especially since she followed it up with rude comments and questions about my sons appearance.

As soon as she left I broke down into tears. I know I should ignore comments like that but I just cannot shake the things she told me.

Needless to say, I'm having a rough night but I was encouraged by this photo my aunt just texted me. I think it's beautifully said so I just had to share.

My belly may be looser than it used to be but it housed the most beautiful person in my life for 10 months. That's quite the accomplishment and i would give way more and do it a million times over for this beautiful gift that I get to cradle in my arms.


  1. Ugh I can't believe someone considered a friend would do something like that! Oh please don't let that get to you. So completely insensitive. It's hard enough as it is to deal with the new body we have after having a baby. I'm so sorry this happened to you! And by the way your son is beautiful!

  2. Thanks ladies. Im still in complete shock over the things she said to me. Oh well.

    P.s. My hubby read your comments this morning and texted me to let me know that my followers are cool. :)

  3. I've seen that photo before, and I think it's BEAUTIFUL! I am so sorry about the way you were treated after your pregnancy; dealing with body, hormonal, and lifestyle changes is difficult enough without others making snide comments. You are absolutely a lovely person inside & out, and your son is so very handsome. Much love to you!

  4. Wow, that's shocking that someone would be rude to you about your body right after having a baby!!!! My hubby makes silly comments about my newly squishy belly but I know he's just joking. Sometimes I get discouraged when I look in the mirror and wonder if my body will ever be the same again but then I look at my sweet little angel and know that even if it isn't, she's totally worth it. I saw that picture on pinterest a while back and I absolutely love it. I cry every time I see it. Don't stress out too much, mama... it won't be long before the extra lbs come off.

  5. Wow, sometimes it amazes me how horrible people can be. I hope this person never gets to see you or your beautiful little boy again. I am so sorry she hurt your feelings. Just know that you have friends, family, blog readers and of course that little boy who thinks any imperfections in your body are the ultimate sign of love. As much as it can hurt to think your body will never be the same, would you really want it to? Would you want all those signs of where your son came from to disappear? I love that picture because it shows the beauty of an "imperfect" belly.

  6. I have the best readers! Thanks so much for your sweet comments!

  7. That's it.... how far are you from me? I'm driving over and I'm gonna first punch her in the face for you.... and two cuddle up with that sweet baby boy of yours! Man I wish I could have taken his pictures :(

    P.S. is it too hard to drive there and back in one day?

    1. You are more than welcome to do both of those things lol. I'm about 2 hours from you... I would LOVE to figure something out for pictures of our little boy.


Thank you for reading my blog! I love love love reading your comments. They really do make my day!
