She was in for 9 months, she's been out for 9 months. .
I've come a long way but I will always have the "stripes" to remind me how incredible my body is for growing such a devine human. I mean, you can't get that big (swipe left) and not have some stretch marks, right!? I know some women get away with it but let's not talk about that haha .
First photo was taken toady as I adjusted my top and noticed my stripes in the car window. They're not usually that noticeable (to me anyway) so I had to take a photo.
Second photo I was actually in the very early stages of labour. So early that I'd just showered and straightened my hair hoping that it wouldn't take that long 😂 if only it was still straight when I gave birth 40 something hours later!!! . .
P.S. Love your body mummas. You created and birthed a/multiple human/s. You're amazing. Be proud. Respect your body. Own your journey. ❤❤❤ .
Yesterday, we went for or first long walk/run in a very long time.
It felt good for a while, then it didn't feel so good anymore, then it got better again.
I'm still having the same pain/uncomfortable feeling I was when I tried running again after Ruby was born, although it's not as bad now and only seems to happen when I take big strides.
I hadn't felt it for while so I wanted to see if it was still an issue.
Turns out it is. 😣
It's amazing that I'm still recovering from growing and birthing my baby (almost 9 months later) but I respect that and will continue to let my body heal without pushing too hard.
I absolutely love running, and look forward to being able to running distance again, but I just have to be patient; it'll happen in good time. .
Can you tell Ruby loved it too? 😁 .
So my little peanut is 1 tomorrow. This picture is so beautiful to me... seconds after he was born and placed in my arms...quickest yet scariest labour ever...a month early, no hospital bag packed and pains going from 0-10 in a matter of minuets. Midwives didn't believe me when I said he was going to be born in the car 🤣 being alone through the scariest part I remember thinking... just do it...push, in my head I was preparing for the worst..as were the midwives...but my little man just wanted to scare me, and keep me on my toes as he has done from day 1... what a rollercoaster this year has been...and I couldn't feel more blessed to have two beautiful amazing loving happy babies and only myself to thank for it. #mummasworld#1wholeyear#timegoestoofast ♥🎁
