Loving Your Postpartum Body

OnSugar Blog: Marks of Love

Lots of moms like to think out loud, and CherylDee is one of them. Here is one of the latest posts to her Lipsticks to Baby Bottles blog.

I know my stretch marks that I started getting as soon as I hit the 8 months mark of being pregnant, which has lasted me until now, always seemed to bug me. They're not as dark and as yucky looking as they were at the beginning. They're starting to fade to white but I can still see them. I felt so insecure about them for such a long time. Plus modeling before also meant that going back to modeling now, I had something to cover up, something to hide.

But then I came across a picture and I have to say, it made me feel better. Made me proud to carry these marks. It was all worth it, every line, every scar, every ounce of pain I felt. I would do it again. A million times in fact. Because what I had in return, is such a beautiful little angel. I still tear up when I think about Kiara. She's been so amazing. She's changed my life, taught me patience, and taught me to love to a whole new level.

So here's to you, all you Mothers. Don't feel ashamed of them anymore. Wear them proudly. I know I am.
