The Gallery – Motherhood – Boobs & bemused…
I wasn’t sure I’d be brave enough to post a pic of my boobs online but after reading that Tara’s prompt for The Gallery this week was ‘Motherhood’ how could I not? Plus some lovely, lovely people on Twitter told me to go for it 🙂
To me motherhood is two things: breastfeeding (look at us go on day 2! I loved breastfeeding…as you can read about here). Even having done it I find it incredible that a woman can make milk and provide her child with sustinance, needing nothing else for months. The body is an amazing and beautiful thing and despite all my issues, I’m very proud of mine for growing and feeding my beautiful baby boy.
And this slightly bemused look on coming home from hospital just a couple of days later.
Scared, overwhelmed, hesitant, panicked, afraid.
Happy, amazed, thrilled, emotional, completely and utterly in love.
Those first few days of motherhood are best (and scariest!) days of your life.
Good luck to 4 lovely ladies who are embarking on this most incredible adventure in the coming weeks. Shelley, Carly, Karen & Louise (in due date order!) – you’ll be fantastic. xxx
