I always was very thin growing up, 5’6″, 120lbs. My pregnancy wasn’t planned, but was a pleasant surprise. I’m only 20 and my husband is 21, we were scared but excited. I was 124lbs when I found out I was pregnant. It took forever for me to start showing. People never believed me when I told them I was pregnant and couldn’t even fit into a Small in maternity clothes until I was 6 1/2 months pregnant. I started eating tons, hoping that I’d develop a belly, I wanted to LOOK pregnant. I went from 124lbs to 169lbs. I didn’t get a single stretch mark until I was 8 months pregnant, then I just blew up in them. I’m very self conscious about them now.I only have them on my stomach and sides but I hate them. I have a beautiful daughter that I’m so thankful for, but I can’t stand to look at my stomach in the mirror. I went from 169lbs to 148 the day I went home from the hospital, but I haven’t lost a pound since then. I walk daily, and do pilates 2 times a week. I try to watch what I eat, but I admit sometimes it’s easier to get pizza for supper then to cook something. My sister showed me this site while I was pregnant and I just now had gotten the courage to post my pic. I love this site!
