I feel the same way…..And my youngest is 4!!!
Your stretchmarks will fade but you’re right they will never go away. My only advise to you is don’t let it control you like it has me for so long. Excercise and eat healthy and your body will come. I left my body and emotions for so long that I feel it useless to start now (which I know it isn’t) but I hate that I couldn’t find the will power to do it sooner. I’m 28 turning 29 this summer and my goal is to be at my goal weight by 30. That means I have to lose 90lbs.!!!
So please take my advise and start now, The weight creeps up so fast and will make the stretch marks worse and self esteem worse. Good luck and congrats on the beautiful baby :)
I had my first baby and got a few stretch marks that were white and didnt dream i would get more after my second but I had loads on my stomach and they were bright red I felt so so down i hated looking at myself too. I bought a cream called trilastin sr and used it for two months it was amazing it faded them so much it is expensive though but it did work but then i was left with the indents :( so I looked into what I could do and since july last year I have been having a thing called derma roller every 8 weeks my marks are now hardly noticeable and i wore a bikini with confidence on holiday, a year after having my second baby!! Dont get too down as they will fade in time x
Hey im 22 I had my beautiful daughter in oct 2011 and I have stretch marks some days they dont bother me other days they do. We are tigers who earned our stripes. Stay positive and be happy! :) nobody can achieve anything being upset.
Hey im 20. 5’2 and 125lbs. before i had my kids i was 110. and i reached up to 150 in my pregnancies.i have always been a small girl. small breats small rear(butt) and so when i had my first baby,May 2011. i had stretchmarks everywhere. due to the fact that i was always small and everything enlarged. i ended up with a few under my breast and thighs.and of coarse my belly. but wen i had my second baby, April 2013. i noticed in between my legs around my waist and they were deeply red! i was so ashamed of my body.. my self esteem dropped so low it brought problems with my husband aswell.. but it takes time for them to adjust and u will see theyr no longer bright red as they were.. theres alot of producrs and remedies out there and it might be time and money consumming but if its wat it will take for u too feel better about yourself go for it!! bit all i can say is uve done a pwerful thing by carrying inside a precious gift.. try to work out and try to maintain healthy and ur body will not look bad as bad with stretchmarks. im working out on my belly and its getting alot firmer and i wear clothes that compliments my body .. and i feel better about myself.
Omgsh! My body looks exactly like yours does and I’m about to be 21 and I just had a baby boy 2/7/2014 and I feel the exact same way I cry about them all the time cause like you I was toned and looked great but said thing I actually lost some of my boobage to hah I hate it but I have to try and feel good about myself because my husband still loves my body and it kind of hurts his feeling ls when I don’t love it myself.
