I know my body has been through a lot. I’m going to use the p word– I have been pregnant twice. I have seen a story or two about “pregnant ftm” or trans masculine pregnancy, but those stories seem so sensationalized that it is hard to relate to them. I’ve given birth twice.
My belly didn’t used to look like this, but it is the work of bearing that did the first round of change; then the second round was phalloplasty nerve hookup, then there was another round of change after the stretching of lapro hysto; then finally, there are new bulges from the implant tubing. But all that’s okay, I guess. Small sacrifices, for the daily, all day long joy of having this dream come true.
