I hesitated in posting this image. It's intimate and personal and perhaps it's over-sharing. There's stretch-marks, blotchy pigmented skin, a few too many chins, an undressed child (and pillows for that matter)...
...but then I think there's something powerful in all those perceived imperfections... so I'm posting it anyway, despite feeling exposed and vulnerable.
This is me on the eve of my 40th week of pregnancy, with my firstborn darling daughter, who still loves nothing more than to be tucked up close to her mother in fetal postion.
My two babies - the ying and the yang.
