  • I have loose skin on my tummy. I actually have to tuck the skin into my jeans when I sit down. It is depressing =(....

  • Each of us suffer from something from being pregnant some things worse than others, like I don't have any stretch marks BUT I got nasty vericose veins that stick out...so! You want to trade? I didn't think so =P cause I can't wear shorts skirts or bathing suits.

  • nature doesn't conform to Western standards of beauty. the cliche answer is "love the body that God and your new baby have given you--those stretch marks are battle scars! those wrinkles are the memories of thousands of moments of laughter..." don't like that answer? that's why man invented botox and tummy tucks!! we can all relate.
