i gave birth to my whopping 9 pounder when i was 17 years old. my other 2 were 8 pounders and i didnt get any new stretch marks but the chub is harder to loose each time. im ok with the way my body looks now. ive been wrinkly for 10 years now and am coming to accept it more and more, although ide still like to loose the weight. my last child was born almost 8 months ago and im 30 punds over my pre pregnancy weight still. my stretch marks remind be of my babies and how connected we are as the first and the last were placed in adoptions and so my body reminds me of the sacrifice and serive of motherhood. i love them in that aspect.
