For those of us who were "blessed" with stretch marks, how do you feel about them?

Why does my Pre-Schooler ride Rear-Facing? Because she is not a minimum. She deserves more than that. If we get into an accident, I want to know that I have done everything in my power to protect her.  Rear-Facing is endorsed by every car seat authority in the US. It is PROVEN to be safer. Why would I choose to take an unneccessary risk with the most precious gift that I have been given? PM me for more info!

 real women have stretch marks...

 my ass! lol

 you never hear a 20 year old  hard body saying those words.

 i dislike them.. but what can you do? sometimes you get them.. sometimes you don't. it's life.

you certainly don't need to be pregnant to get them so i don't know how it could be a badge of motherhood when fat men have them on their titties too.

I don't think it's the stretch marks I hate as much as the loose saggy skin on my belly. It will never go back to where it should be with out surgery.

I hate them and had surgery to remove most of the them. I still have a few but 90% of them are gone. I agree that real woman have stretch marks saying just doesn't work me. I wasn't any less of a woman when I didn't have them and I am not any more of a woman because I do have them. Not too mention, in the summer time when I am in my bikini I will be glad this real woman's stretch marks are few and can't be seen! = )
