  • yes some women do look like they were attacked by a wild cat. sorry not much you can do other than take pride in them:

    despite having lost the child, for the time you supported life- dammit!!! YOU Supported LIFE! Rock the scars to prove it!

  • Yep. The color will lighten a little over time.

  • Yes mama. Look normal to me. This is your stomach right? And they are not painful bruised or swollen? Just stretch marks?

  • You should try Belli Stretchmark Minimizing Cream. It will help reduce the appearance of existing stretchmarks. I have stretchmarks for years without treating them and then I started using this cream and I love it! Everyone is different, but give it a try it, let me know how it works for you?
