Hi. After viewing the other pictures, I feel brave enough to post mine. As a precursor, here is what my tummy looked like my senior year of high school.
I was 19 when I got pregnant with my son. I was never a skinny girl, but I was not fat either. My mother didn’t get stretch marks, so I assumed I wouldn’t.
This is me at 39 weeks pregnant. I gained 47 pounds. I have scoured the internet and I have yet to find someone with stretch marks this awful. But each and every one was worth it.
And this is 11 months postpartum.
And 12 months postpartum, 4 weeks pregnant with #2. I am a little scared of what this second baby will do to my belly, but I will deal with that when the time comes.
