A Woman’s Body is an Amazing Thing

Let’s talk about pregnancy ….

Oh my word ! I know you get women that LOVE being pregnant and see it as this magical time in your life….

Well for me it was a bit different 🙈🤣

I had ; Nausea, headaches, heartburn, constipation, mood swings, irritation, weight gain, swelling, bladder infection, yeast infections, sore body , dehydration and landed up in the hospital, flu and the list goes on and on !

Although I do agree with the fact that it is a special time , I do believe that it is a kind of right of passage for a woman and it is all so so worth it in the end , it takes so much out your body !

In some ways my body is so different after giving birth , I had a c section so I have the well known belly flap , I cant hold my pee anymore ; it needs to happen RIGHT NOW 😂

But in other ways I am amazed at how well my body has recovered , the heartburn is gone , although the belly flap is still there it is already significantly smaller , I have no bladder issues anymore, my body feels healthy again (except the excessive hair loss at the moment) .

I find this fascinating , how your body can endure all that and only have little tell tails about it , yes I have stretch marks and my body looks a bit different, but I am healthy and I have a healthy little baby girl and thats all that matters ❤️

Thankful 🙏🏻💪🏻

  1. Amazing! You covered everything!! The inability to contain the urge to pee is what you struggle with for a long time after. I dunno if it even disappears. You forgot to add how your finger sinks into your stomach because it’s been outstretched and lost its firmness 😭

  3. Right on. I felt horrible during my pregnancies! Had a weird rash on my chest & arms during the first one. And my back KILLED me the second go-round. But… I now have two awesome daughters in their 20s and an adorable baby granddaughter too. 😍

  5. I find women who have been through ANY stage of pregnancy amazing, even those who do not carry to term. I am glad to see your baby was born in good health and that you also have maintained good health. We men can’t hold a candle to any of it.
