So here it is- my first selfie since being a mom. It has really been the best 15 months of my life, but going through pregnancy definitely put my body through a lot. I am currently seeing a chiropractor because my hips never went back correctly, and I haven't been able to walk normal for 3 weeks now. I don't feel comfortable in shorts or a tank top outside my house, and the stretch marks on my legs look like the grand canon.
Moms, we have it rough. The worst thing we can do is compare ourselves to others or expect our body to magically look like it did pre-baby. I am thankful for a body that was pushed to its limits to give me my sweet Jude. I would do it 1,000 times over again.
