stretchmarked legs (Autumn)

i posted here in july of last year, here’s the link to that post: http://theshapeofamother.com/2006/07/autumn/

the first picture is of the stretchmarks i got on the back of my legs during my pregnancy. i had a hard time getting photos of them(cause of my posistion haha) but i did get one shot. both of my legs look like this from the back and the stretchmarks travel down to my calves, but those are harder to see since they’ve faded to white. the second picture is my stomach as of now-18 months post partum. my stretchmarks have faded and i swear get lighter by the second.

    Your tummy looks amazing!!! I wish my stretchmarks would of faded like that. Are you using anything on them??
    By the way, my legs look just the same way, though I have more sms on my upper thighs and on my calves. But the calves have faded to almost nothing and easily go away with a quick tan.

    How did you get a picture of my leg?! :-) I swear we’re leg twins. My youngest is 11 now, and while they’ve faded they’re definitely still visible. People don’t believe me that I have stretch marks all the way down to my calves until I show them.

    in response to tanya:

    thank you! actually, no i haven’t been using anything on them. i just kinda let them do their thing. :P

    in response to martina:

    for awhile there, i was feeling like i was the only one who got stretchmarks on her legs. i’m so glad this website is here, otherwise i’d probably still be feeling that way.

    people don’t believe me when i tell them either. hehe

    Hey,I have the same strechmarks on my body and legs, I had my daughter at 19 and my pre pregnancy weight was 117. I’m back to my weight, but the LEGS! I found a leg makeup called perfection and it works pretty good to cover the indentions.
