Mother of One (Anonymous)

Age 21; Pregnancies 1; Births 1. I had to have my son by c-section after 16 1/2 hours of labor and never dialating past 1 cm. I was 18 when I become pregnant with my son and 19 when I had him. He is about a year and a half now and he is my everything. My pregnancy was a fairly normal, smooth sailing one. Besides going over my due date by 4 days and being induced. I was 120 pounds and in VERY good shape when I become pregnant, I didn’t recieve stretch marks until about 37 weeks and the were on the bottom of my stomach and on my sides. After having my son all those stretch marks came up and were everywhere! I have them on my inner thighs, butt, breasts and of course my stomach. I was very ashamed about my body for a long time, I didn’t even want my fiance to see me with clothes off. But one day he just sat me down and told me that there was no reason to hide, he loved me for me and my stretch marks didn’t bother him. This summer I have decided to wear a bikini again, I am very nervous but I am not ashamed anymore. I wish I could go back to my pre-pregnancy body but I have this one b/c of my amazing little boy and I wouldn’t trade that for anything! The picture is my stomach now.

    You look amazing in your bikini! Your stretch aren’t very apparent and I doubt anyone will even pay attention to them.

    Girl you look great- after some tanning you wont even notice the little light stretchies you have!

    OK, this may sound weird but I actually think your stretchies look kinda sexy… Just my humble opinion :)

    People will ntocie your sweet little boy, not your stretch marks. DOn’t worry. Spray tanning or self tanner will disguise them also, just a tip I used to get thru the first Bikini season after my first.
