This site has given inspiration to so many women. I have to say, I’m truely touched by all of the stories and beautiful pictures. We should all be proud of the opportunity to have such marks. I have a friend that would give anything to birth her own child. There are so many unfortunate people that cannot have children of their own. I am proud to show off my scars and thank god every day for the 3 miracles he has given me.
I first got pregnant when I was 18. I gained about 45 lbs with each child. My two sons are about 2 years apart and my daughter was born 5 years after my middle son. I’m so thankful to have 3 beautiful children. I used to be so scared of what people might think of my body. Now I wear a bathing suit proudly, and am eagerly accompanied by my 3 soldiers to whom I owe my battle scars.
Here are recent photographs of me. My youngest will be 2 years old this August (2006). I am back at my pre-pregnancy weight. Thanks to all of the women who have posted so far.
