Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

So I was just looking at a post about a woman with 5 kids and no stretch marks.

 Some of the replies,a lot actually,are other women saying they are proud of their stretch marks. I don't understand this. What is there to be proud of? I'm not saying anyone should be ashamed of them . But to feel pride for them makes no sense to me. I personally am pretty indifferent to mine. I don't need stretch marks to show I've had three kids. I have three kids to show that. Those I am proud of.

Hey, I don't like mine, but I wouldn't trade them to have her stomach with a 5 kid in it .. The bitch has 5 kids ... There was a reason I stopped.

I don't really like my stretch marks. The only one that I really like is right above my belly button its actually shaped like a playboy bunny and I think its cute

I have them. I am not too fond of my road map, but I suppose sometimes people need to say whatever they can to cope.

See, to me that makes more sense than being proud of them. I don't have many but I'd be happy if I didn't have any,too.

I'm indifferent to mine, as well. I wish they weren't there, but really I couldn't care less about them.

I'm not proud of them. I hate them. They're gross, not badges of honor. My husband says they're beautiful because he knows how I got them, the kids, I think he's just crazy.

They remind me how amazing my body is, that it created three beautiful, healthy children.
