There is Hope, I am Proof (Jessica)

December 22, 2009

Original entries here and here.

This is my 3rd post. I am currently pregnant with #2 (25 weeks) I want to show you that there is hope and I am proof. I am including some previous pictures and some current pictures of my stretchmarks, because so many people tell you “they will fade”, “give it time” and you just don’t want to hear it. Here is the proof! I hope this reaches the right person.

~Age: 24
~Number of pregnancies and births: 2 pregnancies, 1 birth so far due 3/2010
~The age of your children, or how far postpartum you are: 16 months postpartum and 6.5 months pregnant

    This really did give me hope that I might look close to what I did pre-pregnancy. I have always been very thin and my body was one thing I always liked about myslef. I am currently 38 weeks pregnant with my son who is a true gift from god and took 5 1/2 years to make. I got to 37 weeks with 2 VERY MINOR strech marks, then all of a sudden I woke up and had strech marks. they are still very light and localized but every day that goes by I am seeing them more. My AMAZING and WONDERFUL Husband keeps telling me they are nothing to worry about and they will go away and if this is the worst of it… It’s not bad. I however feel like I will look like an 80 year old in my stomach when all is said and done. I plan on working my a** off to get in the best possible shape I can when the Dr. gives me the ok, but I just don’t know what can be done for strech marks and loose skin (which I hope I don’t get). I am going to fight to get my stomach shape and skin back and do everything short of plastic surgery (but if I need I will do laser). Looking at your photo of how significantly your marks have gone away gives me hope that mine will go away too and with work I can be proud of my body again.
