First of all, if you have never heard of
postsecret.com let me give you a little
history. Postsecret.com is a website started by this guy who first went
around a his town posting signs for people to send him their secrets. He
got an overwhelming response and published a book. Then decided to start
posting the postcards on this website. Because they are secrets, if you
post a picture usually the face is distorted in some manner in order to
keep the secret. Okay so that now with that brief history, read on.
I was browsing postsecret the other day and saw this
I was thinking how sad that was when I remembered my little secret.
With pregnancy comes "the belly." Before I was 4 months pregnant I had
never in my entire life had any type of belly. And so when you're
pregnant "the belly" is cute because there is a baby in there. BUT after
you have the baby "the belly" is just a belly which means it's not cute
anymore...not even the slightest bit cute.
In general I think a lot of pregnant women look at post pregnant women's
bellies to "monitor." The criteria in monitoring is to ask how old their
baby is and observe how little the mommy's belly is. Obviously the
younger the baby and the smaller "the belly" the more points you get.
It's kinda like a game I played and I'm sure other prego ladies do it
too. Well I wanted to be one of those mommies with a lot of points. I
would always hope that I would be back to normal as quick as possible,
but you just don't know how your belly (and body in general) will bounce
People have graciously commented on how well I bounced back, but
regardless of their kind comments I know I still have "the belly." Maybe
it depends on what I'm wearing....or does it. lol Hence my secret!
If I were to send in a postcard this is what it would look like:
Gosh especially now with my baby getting older I really gotta suck it
in. :) hehe I know, so mean, but I just can't help myself.
Special thanks to my husband for creating my post card.
Also thanks to Susy H. who enlightened me to the fact that the
accidental light on my tummy is in the shape of a heart (upside down).
