1 Bump

stretch marks

I cocoa buttered my ass off, I excercised..though I ate a lot, I only gained about 25 pounds with both of my pregnancies and delivered very health 7 almost 8 pound babys. I was all baby. My kids are 15 months apart. Im trying to lose the skin, but i'm very self concious about my lose skin and stretch marks. My boobs are two cups sizes different. I'm 22 and it makes me sad at time because I know girls that have two or more kids and still look fabulous, no stretch marks and still great shapes

  • I'm sorry! Some people are just lucky like that. I have stretch marks but they are all from just getting fat. I hardly gained any weight while pregnant.

  • I just suck it in lol j/k lay on your back, put your child on yout lags and lift them up then back down, do it a few times a day, you'll see a big difference in a month.

  • I know what you mean, probably many of us do. I know a girl who has had 2 kids and she looks the same way she did 10 years ago when i met her, me in the other hand, I've delivered 3, haven't gained much weight during the pregnancies but my last one completely reshaped my body, my already big boobs became ginormous! Like someone else said, some are just lucky that way, some of us just have to work a little harder to get our groove back. You're not alone!

  • Try microdermabrasion.. seek a salon that offers it or a salon that caters to womens stretch mark zones.. they will help reduce them.

  • i know what you mean. im 23 & i feel that way about my saggy boobs. i all intentions on getting plastic surgery for them as soon as i can afford it, because i refuse at 23 years old to live with saggy boobs for the rest of my life.
