Four children have been grown and nurtured in my belly.
I see my shape formed from this stretch and release over three and a half years in total and love it now. The left side hangs a little lower if I lean over you. Someone’s foot repeatedly pushing on my stomach wall did that. The stretch marks appeared as my innie became an outie. I remember the wonder as I saw for the first time where I had been connected to my mother. The curves are still those of a fertile woman, hips large and rounded. I surrender to my history and biology. I embrace my future.
My belly has worked hard. Now is my time for pleasure and enjoyment. One of which is posting pictures of a fifty year old plus body with a sense of having finally come home to it.
Listen to your body. It knows what it wants.
