Pregnancy Memento at 26 Weeks

This is me and my tummy at 26 weeks or 6 months pregnant.

I am trying to embrace all the changes in my body during this pregnancy.

About 26 weeks pregnant and already gained 10kg.

Whenever my husband notices that my tummy has grown bigger and bigger each day, he is happy (for our little one who is joyfully maturing inside me) yet pities me at the same time. He is sad to see how my tummy skin has been extensively stretched, until it feels so tight, to accommodate our growing baby and my expanding uterus.

But hey, it's just one of the sacrifices a woman makes for her baby, right?

  1. You are young and after your baby is born, your skin will go back to being smooth and flat. It doesn't take long either. I gained a lot of weight when I was pregnant. But I was very young. And my stomach went smooth and flat again easily.

  2. I hope so! I have high hopes on the stretch mark lotion product I currently use.

  4. A lot of the changes your body goes through will be something in the past after the baby is born. Remember that women's bodies were designed to have babies so your body will go back to what it was in time after the baby is born.
