I have been reading the posts on the BlogHer "Own Your Beauty" wall and, like it's intended, got me thinking about my own "beautiful moment."
After I had Athena I wasn't expecting to leave the hospital looking like I was still a good 7 months pregnant. I was in so much pain, struggling with breastfeeding, and hating my body. Mix that with postpartum emotions and you've got yourself a hot mess.
I was sitting in bed across from my husband, using my breast pump, and praying to God THAT MILK WOULD JUST COME OUT!!! I looked down at my pump, my stretch-marked boobs, and swollen stomach and started to bawl. I began blubbering things like "Please don't look at me!" and "How can you stand to see me like this?!"
My husband's eyes filled with tears and he said "Never have you looked more beautiful to me than you do right now. You just had my baby and now you're going to feed her yourself."
