Does your S/O love your post-pregnancy body?

I was wondering if any of you moms have an SO that still loves your body even after the changes. Including stretchmarks. I was watching tv by the way and I heard about this new thing they came out with that gets rid of stretchmarks and it's not bio-oil it's something else. Have you saw the commercial? My bf still likes to rub my tummy and look at it but I'm embarrassed of it a little bit because it's so dark and my belly button is still poked out. What about you all?

  My fiance loves my body. So he says. He says I look more beautiful than ever. Even before my stretch marks when i was 110lbs. He says it so convincingly that I just have to believe him. Man I love that. I'm still kinda embarrassed but he still makes me feel great lol.  Blushy

My DF says he does... but you can tell he says it to make me feel better, you know? Cause in all truth, I KNOW my stomach looks aweful after 2 c-sections. I honestly dont care ONE bit about the stretch marks, but that freaking pouch hanging there is disgusting to look at. I am thinking really hard about a tummy tuck.

My first was an emergency, and with my second DD the doctor said that I was too tiny to try to push.... oh well. Whats done is done.

 Well.. it looks basically the same as it did before, minus the stretch marks. But those have pretty much faded. The only thing different is my boobs are smaller and less full, so once we are done having babies Im getting a boob job. But he doesnt think I need one, he says I look great the way I am. But he understands that its something Im self-conscious about so he's supportive in that regard.

Are you talking about the new Mederma Stretch Mark stuff?? I saw an ad for that online!

my hubby still loves me---ALL of me.  :)

he's always telling me I'm beautiful and sexy...and I love that he loves me no matter what. it took me awhile though to accept my new body and be "comfortable" with myself.

but, now that it's been awhile (15mos) since my son was born, it's gotten better. the stretchmarks fade and I lost all the weight. my body will always "look different", but I've come to accept it, and be happy with what I have! no sense in being unhappy over it, it's not changin!
