The Post Baby Body

I’ve been having a rough couple of days with my post baby body. Sometimes I could care less that I have stretch marks and extra skin, and sometimes it actually begins to affect my self-worth. I’ve yet to experience another attribute that allows me to devalue myself, quite like weight…
