27 YR OLD MOTHER OF THREE…….MAN I MISS MY FLAT BELLY!!!!! (Angella)

April 23, 2007

I have horrible stretch marks, and that “bump” that just WILL NOT GO AWAY!!!!! I struggle with it all the time. I won’t wear a bathing suit, won’t let ANYONE ever see my stomach, and have to have sex with the lights off and one hand on my stomach. It’s crazy, and I hate it!!! I am 6ft tall,140 pounds, I HATE when people tell me (which is often) how skinny I am and “how do you stay so thin?”….or my favorite….”I can’t believe you have three kids!!” It makes me want to cry….they have no idea what is hiding under the cloths! This is a great site and it helps to know I am not alone….kudos to all of you! Have a blessed day! Angella

    You do look great! I know what you mean though. I’m a relatively “tiny” person and I am always on a new diet or exercise scheme. People tell me how tiny I already am, but they don’t see the post partum pooch or sagging breasts. Thanks for showing that even thin mommies can have mommy bodies. I’ve learned that it’s okay to be a little insecure. I don’t have to feel guilty for wanting to improve on my body just because other people are heavier.

    You honestly look great for having 3 kids, but I do understand your frustration with people telling you that you look great. I get that too and I feel they are saying that out of kindness. Though really you seem to hard on yourself, I wish I looked like you and I only have one child and I’m on my second, I know for a fact my stomach is going to be much worse afterwards.

    I don’t know how long you’ve been reading this site- however you MUST read this woman’s entry. It’s beautiful and I believe it may help you accept yourself, and be proud of what your body has accomplished. That has been my favorite entry so far and I always refer back to it every time I need a reality check. Good luck!

    I understand your feelings, however be glad you’re not shorter and heavier and people ask me all the time “When are you due?” I’m not pregnant, and it really makes my self-esteem take a nose-dive! ughh…That question should be banned. :-) You look great though!

    You sound alot like me. I dont let anyone see my stomach.. I wear a bathing suit though, but its usually a tankini.. I hate when people tell me how skinny I am as well, because I know there is that pouch underneath the clothes..

    I actually think your streach marks are beautiful… looks kinda like a pink tribal tattoo.

    :) I so hear you! I hate it too when people tell me I look good for having “so many” kids. Sometimes, i say “you havent seen me naked!!” The day i will accept my new body “naked” will be a victory. haha
    You look awesome tho! Your shape is perfect :)

    i have never seen someone with stretch marks that look just like mine!!!!you have them in the same places,width,height,color everything.i bet if i took a pic of mine and we put them side by side we couldnt tell whos who!!!!but i am so ashamed of mine.i dont let my husband even touch my tummy.i tell him the only reason the scars dont bother him,is because he loves me and had i had tem when we first met as bad as i do now he wouldnt have been attracted to me.he says he would have.ihad very small scars after my 1st child and my first husband told me”yeah you might be pretty in the face but as soon as some guy see’s your stomach he’ll go limp”that is still with me to this day .

    OMG, me too. People always tell me what a great figure I have, how skinny I am even after 2 kids but they have no idea about my stretch marks and pooch and I’m so conscious about being totally naked in front of my husband although he says no matter what, he loves me and they are trophy marks for having his kids. My pooch annoys me.

    Your stomack looks better than mine. I am 27 also with three children. I think the saying “You look good for someone who has 3 children is an insult”. Why can’t I just look good. My children does not need to be mentioned.
