First of all – kudos to the creator of this page and to all the women who posted their stories! Here is how my story goes: I got pregnant after 2 years of trying, fertility treatments and one round of IVF. Got blessed with boy/girl twins, whom I carried to 38 weeks. They were born at 6 lbs 9 oz and 5 lbs 2oz. Unfortunately I don’t have any digitals of my pregnant belly, but it looked like it was attacked by the angry tiger. Even my stretchmarks had stretchmarks! What can you do – bad skin elasticity! I am 5’7” and was around 130lbs when I got pregnant at 29, gained 65 lbs and lost it all within a year. I looked great in clothes but my tummy looked like a deflated baloon, something that even 90-year-old grandma won’t claim as her own, and I was constantly getting infections in my belly button (or what was left of it) because it got closed. I’ve contemplated plastic surgery for years, and finally when twins were 4 I went for it. People thought I was crazy, so I had to lift up my shirt to prove my point. :o) The surgery went very well, and recovery was pretty easy for me, but my skin is being my skin – it scars very badly. I knew it going in though. So almost 4 years after the surgery my scar is still angry red/purple and wide. It is starting to fade in spots though lately. Since I had stretchmarks way above the belly button, they are still there after the surgery, and while it looks ok standing up – if I bend the skin still wrinkles and sags. Or well, at least if my shirt rides up, the site doesn’t induce vomit reflex in onlookers. :o) I am almost 38, and even though I thought I was done with having babies, I think I am getting a baby fever. the thought of what the pregnancy will do to my body is frightening though. So most likely – no more babies for me.
