Are you ashamed of your stretch marks?

My baby was 9lbs and 12oz when he was born and my tummy reeped the consequences...BIG TIME!!! Although they have faded alot i still have a hard time being comfortable naked:(

  • Nope, they are the marks of a woman. :)
    They are the first present my children ever gave me, and
    I just so happen to get to take that present everywhere I go.

  • The only one to see my stomach is my husband. And I figure he's half responsible for the cause of the stretch marks. :-)
    I don't worry about them. I'm on the big side and my belly's far from flat and smooth, but it's mine. :-)

  • I am! My son was only 6lbs and I lost weight during my pregnancy but I still got bad stretch marks.
    Theyre only on my stomach but I still hate them. I always try to leave my shirt on during sex but my SO makes it a point to take it off. If im on top Its all I am thinking about )= and my lovely fat gut lol.
    I got loose skin on my stomach, I wish I exercised before so it would bounce back.

  • No, they don't bother me. They were more than worth it & faded much faster than I ever expected.

  • My last was 9 pounds 1/2 oz. Tho I didn't get many stretch mark. They don't bother me because they are barely there.. Its my extra tummy skin that I am sick of.. and stupid love handles. =(

    I saw a movie the other day that said "stretch marks are the badge of a real woman." lol. I was like yeah! you tell em! haha
