I just wanted to take a moment and tell you guys a little more about myself, and why I chose to post my bare belly picture with my newborn baby! As most of you guys already know from my instagram, my name is Alex. I gave birth to my first son eighteen months ago, his name is Bryan. I found out I was pregnant with my second son Anthony when my first son was four months old! I’ve got irish twins!! I suffered from postpartum depression after both of my boys were born. I chose to post my stretch marked belly on instagram to connect with other mamas who can relate to me. Not just with my stretch mark covered belly, but the struggles we go through with breastfeeding, the constant upkeep of a family of four, the ongoing challenge of raising two children that are thirteen months apart, and I also want to connect with woman who’s spouses work constantly to support their families, like my husband does!
I started this blog to connect on a more personal level, I don’t want to just talk about me, I want to know about you guys also! and its getting pretty hard to communicate through instagram and Facebook! I would like to hear other postpartum journeys, how you made it through, what makes you feel better? I’m also anxious to talk to other mamas who’s spouses are gone often, how do you cope with taking care of your children and homes? These are the type of things I can’t achieve through instagram or Facebook!
Thanks for reading, I hope to hear from you guys soon!
