I Love My Marks (Charlotte)

April 4, 2012

mom of an 18 month old and 20weeks pregnant with the second!

I was very shocked to find out when I was pregnant with my son. Mostly because I found out just 8 days before he was born! My boyfriend and I were panicked to say the very least. I didn’t have a single symptom, or stretch mark, until the end. My stomach Exploded with stretch marks. All of my friends who have kids are so disgusted by their stretch marks, and now, being pregnant with baby number 2 (planned this time), I’m embracing all of the changes because I know this will most likely be our last. I wrote down how I feel about my stretch marks, and loose skin, and cellulite, and everything else that came with willy (my first) and attached it to my favorite picture of the two of us.
