This describes my current life so well. Being a working/pumping momma is hard. You have to think about it constantly. Where to pump, when to pump, will you have privacy? All just to provide that sweet man with the nutrition he needs and has been getting to grow. Being away from him 40+ hours per week is hard, the hardest. . . But you've got to provide for the family you've started. I'll do whatever it takes to give my lil man the best life possible. The tiger stripes are just a reminder that your body gave life to another human, it's just incredible, even though I'll never wear another bikini.

"This is me and one of the most terrifying posts I've ever made. This is who I am, the mama to a beautiful baby boy who took 9 months to create. I'm making this post so that I always remember how special each stretch mark is, I won't always have to wear a sports/nursing bra, don't be so hard on myself, and that this is a journey. I look around and see women who just gave birth with perfectly manicured nails, an impeccable house, amazing photos and rock hard abs (obviously jealous) and think that's how I should be. No, I am a working mom, scratch that, a pumping working mom who may not have time to fit in a workout each day because I don't want to miss any special moments. It is so frustrating that society expects women to "bounce back" after creating a living, breathing human being. Creating this life took time and so will "bouncing back". I am here to say be healthy, happy, give yourself a break and you've got this." - @kaleenduh
