When I took this picture I had 3 children (ages 5, 3, and 1). We thought we were done. I looked at my belly and would just think about how “empty” it looked. Stretched out and empty. A few weeks later I found out we are pregnant with #4. One more person is going to grow in this belly of mine. It is just an amazing thing. After my first I would look at my reflection and be dissapointed in how I looked, but now it seems more natural. This body of mine has produced some pretty awesome people! Thanks for your site, it is helping me overcome alot of my anxiety over how my shape has changed through the years. More pictures of my beautiful “creations” can be seen at

    Why do some women get stretch marks and others don’t?

    Thank you for posting your image. ‘Nemo, mama’ said my fish movie addicted wee one. Yes – your belly looks like the lovely anemone that houses the stripey fishie family.

    Wishing you well with your fourth.

    Thank you for being so brave and congratulations on your 4th! Happy & healthy everything to you.

    But this also is a testament to men. Who stand by their women even after the aesthetic has changed. Men are visual beings and knowing that love transcends that is a beautiful thing.
