Hard to look in the mirror sometimes (Anonymous)

May 29, 2008

On other websites all I ever see is perfect round bellies without any stretch marks or imperfections, so I was beginning to feel like something was horribly wrong with me and my belly. So many people on this site have inspired me and made me feel more normal… This is very embarassing to me :(( I have always had body image issues, and I think I cry almost every day about these stretch marks that keep growing. I really wish I could love my pregnant body … I know it will never be the same… and it makes me so sad :(( It’s so hard to accept the way that I’m carrying, the marks on my stomach and even some on my thigh. It feels like I am carrying so low that I look horribly strange… Well here I am. I hope that bye sharing photos of my belly maybe I can help another woman people feel more “normal” too.

    Wow you look so beautiful pregnant! What a perfect pregnant belly! Everyone carries differently, and I’m sure you’d be surprised if you found out how many people were photoshopping their strechmarks out of their pregnancy pics (I’m guilty of this!) before posting them on the net. You look fantastic, perfect, beautiful!!!

    You look perfect, I wish I had that figure pregnant! I have the exact same stretchmarks in the same spots as you. They all faded and are barely noticeable postpartum in a bikini. You are so beautiful!

    You look great!I also had bright dark pink stretch marks on my belly when pregnant. they are gone. I have some lighter than my regular skin color stretch marks left, but the pink will fade. I promise.

    The reason you are carrying low is because you havee a very long torso. I have the same body type as you (before two pregnancies). The great thing about is that your tummy will look great after a few months (as long as you work out). Accept your stretch marks…. This is your badge.
