My name is Taylor. I am 21 years old and currently pregnant with my first child. From the day I found out I was pregnant I used lotions and creams to prevent any marks from appearing on my body. I got my first stretch mark at 20 weeks. It was all downhill from there. Everyone else that was pregnant around me would post pictures of their beautiful bare baby bumps and I was ashamed to show anyone my stomach. I was even embaressed when my husband looked at me. He always tells me I am beautiful and I just wince because I never felt that way. I am learning that there is something extremely beautiful in the marks I carry with me. I am bringing a beautiful life into this world, and I will never have a perfect body, but I have a husband who loves me and I will soon have a baby to make it all worth it. I have never shown anyone but my husband my stomach but I feel its time to stop hiding my beautiful scars and share them with women who know how I feel. This site has made me not ashamed to let my tiger stripes show! Thank you!
