My Name is Rachael. I am 22, I live in Bunbury, Western Australia.

I had my baby boy “Traye” on the 21st of February 2010… so that makes me 3 and a half weeks “PP”.

I knew i was going to have a bad stomach because of how quickly my stretch marks came up.. i started showing at like 2 and a half months..

In my whole pregnancy i put on 28kg, something i so was not and still not proud of… when Traye came out i lost 6kgs.. and now ive lost all up 10kgs…

Ive still got along way to go… but i no now by tuning in to the lifestyle you channel on Foxtel with Louise Redknapp Episode that if it took 9 months to put the weight on its going to take at least that to get the weight off..

I look at my son and think well at least something great came out of the pregnancy. labour and delivery ( im sweating just thinking about it )

Thanks for reading this

From Rachael

    Hey you are my belly twin!!! :)
    You had such a pretty pregnant belly! :D

    I am 4 months pp now but those pictures you posted could be of me at 3 weeks pp. I can only tell you that things only get better and it WILL tighten back up. My stretch marks have faded alot and I had just as many if not more than you.

    I think you look GREAT for 3 weeks pp girl and kudos for the good attitude! =]

    don’t worry about the stretch marks hunny!!! Mine were almost identical to yours, and for the last 2 years I have been using alot of bio-oil and mine aren’t even red anymore!! It will take time, but they will fade! I posted on here too, (self hate why not celebrate) look at my pics, and remember that right after i had my son my stomach looked just like yours!

    I got stretchmarks in the first trimester too.. Weird. Whats even stranger than that, is everyone I talk to said they never got any! WTF?? I think thats the only reason we trip on it. It’s such a taboo thing still. I also wanna say that your stomach is super flat! I love the preggo pic lol! thats what every preggo feels like doing the whole time LOL! Your stretchmarks will fade in no time. Just enjoy your baby and everything will go back to its new normal :)
