Me and my children

Me and my children

I’m in my 30 years of living, I’ve never had any sort of surgery. I delivered all of my 3 children naturally and nursed all of them for a full year. I would say I took pretty good care of myself while pregnant. I exercised. I ate decently.   But there was still a little side of my body that never reverted back to my pre-mommy days. My husband and I decided quite quickly after we had our third child, with a count of 1 girl and 2 boys, all under the age of 5, that we were DONE! The chapter of baby-making was closing and the “Restoring of me” chapter was beginning. In fact, the wind was blowing the pages open.

I never ever second-guessed my decision to nurse my children. I went 14 months with my first-born, 8 months with my middle child and a full year with my last born. I even used a breast pump as well, to keep the supply and demand up. And now 5 years later, I look in the mirror and look for the missing boobs I once had. I long for those days when I was nursing, because my breasts were at their prettiest. I had cleavage… I had shape… I had my husband’s eyes locked on me…   Now fast forward 5 years and I’ve got nothing!

At the time I came to terms with pursuing breast augmentation, my husband, as well, was pursuing a new HOME THEATER!

My Husband's New Flat Screen TV

My Husband’s New Flat Screen TV

A new 52 inch flat screen TV, with a 5 speaker surround sound system. “Wow honey, isn’t the television we currently have just 5 years old?” Of course it was! “And so we’re getting all new everything because why?” I asked. Oh, because he wanted to. And then that is when it became clear to me. I, too, can have something I want and it certainly wasn’t going to be anything flat!

    Great story, Melissa. I like how you identified the period after your childbirth as “restoring” period. It is important to take care of yourself, especially as a mother, because your care of yourself ultimately means that you are in better condition to take care of your family. Best of luck. Hope to read more soon.

    JL,
    Thank you for your insight. We agree and have actually titled our documentary film “Restoring Jennifer” for exactly the same reasons. The film is posted with a link on our Blog.
