While researching on the internet about post pregnancy body I ended up finding this webpage. It called a lot my attention and I was touched by some of the stories. Why not to share mine as well?
My daughter was a premature baby (7 and 1/2 months) and the cesarean was a choice of mine. It was actually planned from the beginning on, but my little girl was not so patient and the water broke on week 35.
I carried her for months inside of my belly, felt her moving when she was growing and loved her from the moment I got the positive result of the pregnancy test. Being a mother is much more than pregnancy, labor or delivery. Being a mom is pure miracle. It is genuine and unconditional love. After all, mothers of adopted kids are no different than us.
My cesarean scar is far from being beautiful, but it does not bother me that much. It is just a scar. What do I think or feel when I look at it in the mirror? That I am a very proud mom of a beautiful and healthy little girl.
