that picture is fantastic, i really love it.
her stomach looks a lot like mine, though i can’t wear my belly button ring anymore cause of my belly button being so stretched out. it’s almost uncanny, though. her stretchmarks even go in the same direction as mine.
Your photo brought tears to my eyes..I dont even have words to express how it made me feel..all I can say (and it does your picture no justice) is that its BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!
I am a mother of 2 and currently trying to conceive my third,and I too have those marks..not only on my tummy,but on my breasts,my thighs and my hips…
I am also alot “bigger” than I was before I had my children and I am constantly reminded (by family and friends) that my body was great before I had my kids,which has always made me seriously self consious about what people see when they look at me now.
Looking at your picture I have suddenly realised that I dont have to be ashamed anymore..that I am actually lucky to have the marks I have.
Thank you SO much for posting that,your words are beautiful!!! I just wish others could have that same way of thinking..especially men!
In a world where women who weigh 130lbs are considered fat and anything not photo shopped is considered ugly,your picture is amazingly refreshing,real,heart warming and beautiful!
