  • I love my stretchmarks! My husband told me one day they reminded him of tiger stripes and that made me love them even more! :) Some women are proud, others insecure. And with having kids, there are many things that don't look like they used to, and sometimes it may be easier to lie then to admit it and be embarrassed. Again that's all how you view your body and how confident you are :)

  • I don't lie about mine.... i got one on my boob (underside of it) and everyone teases me saying I'm the only one who wasn't physically affected by the pregnancy and birth. I'm very proud of my stretch mark and my C section scar!!

  • why lie? i was ok after my first 2 babies (premature), but my son (born at 41 weeks) he wrecked my tummy. it was ugly as hell for a long time. now he is nearly 13 months and they are all faded.

  • Yeah, I dont understand why someone would lie about it. Its not that I love them or hate them, but they are there. They are very white because its been a long time since Ive been pregnant, but its not like I am going to show them to anyone, so it doesnt really matter what the truth is. What does it benefit a person to say that they dont have them? Meaning....does it make her feel better about herself? Just curious. That seems weird.

  • I don't lie, I don't have any. But if I did, I still wouldn't lie. Badge of honor!!

    That, and I really don't care about stuff like that. LOL
