It's been 8 weeks since I had my son, my husband left for boot camp 2 weeks after he was born and I'll be seeing him on the 30th when he graduates. I am SO nervous about having sex, I'm still randomly sore down there and it's freaking me out thinking about it. Not to mention the fact that I feel soooo unattractive, what with the stretch marks and the weight that I've gained.
Any advice, and how did it go for you guys? Just wanting some reassurance. Even if I wasn't worried about the pain, I'm just so worried about the way I look. I had always been skinny, fit, and tan... now I'm larger, have major stretch marks... and I'm paler than a vampire (minus the sparkles... those might actually help).
My husband keeps telling me not to worry about it, that I look great... but I dunno, it doesn't help that he hasn't seen me too much since the baby was born. Feedback would be appreciated!
