    Hi Becky – I wanted you to know that you look beautiful. Giving life is a sacred and wonderful thing, you may feel low right now, that’s a fair feeling to have, but in time you will watch your child grow and know that it was all worth it. Your husband is a lucky guy, you’re a real knock out.

    first off, you are a great writer!

    secondly, you just had your baby! now your stretch marks are obvious to you but I promise, no I guarantee! that they will fade. You are correct, wraps and potions won’t do it, but still do go ahead and keeping nourishing your self by lathering up in good topicals; shea butter, cocoa butter, carrot seed extract all are great. but do it out of self love & care. after returning to the gym and regaining your strength again you will realize how much stronger you have become. and your body will change once again…

    I feel your pain. Although my first husband was not as supportive as yours was and instead made me feel like I was gross and would never said it was ‘ok’ for bearing him a child. My self esteem plummeted from then on and I was extremely self conscious about my marks. 14 years later, pregnant again with a new husband that reminds me everyday how beautiful I am. Im starting to accept the fact that I have them and it’s part of the process when you’re not one of th lucky ones that have none. But for a long time is sad to say some sort of hatred and jealousy will fill my heart whenever I went to the beach and see a mom with perfect body and no marks.

    You’re BEAUTIFUL!! She’s fresh out the womb. Give it some time, they’ll fade.

    Hello Becky, thank you for sharing your journey in motherhood. I’ve always believed that beauty begins from within and I am amazed by the sacrifice you have taken to carry and give birth to your daughter. I have a daughter who is a twin but I didn’t have to grieve for my body in the same way because I didn’t value it like you do. I’m making up for lost time now by doing yoga. I’m finding yoga helps improve how my body looks and how I perceive my body. The impact on my body for giving birth to her now seems like a small price to pay. All the best with bouncing back.
