Thank you SO much for this site! My skin had stretched so thin while pregnant that people could literally see my babies’ knuckles & fingernails through me. I have stretch marks across my belly that run all the way around the sides. I have them in my upper arms, around each of my breasts, and down my thighs.
I have learned to accept them. It’s taken years, but I now see each & every one of them as “battle scars” to be worn proudly. I worked HARD and earned every single one of them, and nobody is ever going to make me feel anything but proud of them again. I am a mother of two and this is my belly at 6 years, 5 months postpartum.
