Ask Mom: Stretch Marks

Ok, ok, so this, I feel is one of those topics that no one talks about too much, but well it's my blog and I'm going to, dag-nabbit!  Since having Everett--my first and only child right now--my body has been painted with stretch marks--gross.  Sorry if TMI. I feel like I am supposed to look at them as sweet little reminders of my babes birth and count them all as little marks of his blessing us here on earth.  Well, I get that, and if you have that mindset more power to you, but really---I am not to that point yet.   I understood when pregnant and still understand that my body will never be the same and I am still getting used to that and would totally do it ten---ok maybe nine (baby boy hurt like a muthah!) times over again for Everett.  But really, God---why did you have to involve stretch marks in this process!  I didn't do a whole lot to fight them during my pregnancy because I did not really start to get them bad until the last month.  And since then I just have experimented with a few potions here and there.   Even though this kind of sounds like a rant, I really don't dwell on it too much because I know more likely than not, it will not change.  It's just a change in appearance that every so often I catch a glimpse of and still have a hard time seeing them as something beautiful.  You feel me?  Am I awful to think this?  I wanna know the honest truth, moms:

How do YOU feel about your stretch marks and do you know of any secret potion that can cure us all?  :)

  1. I feel the same way about my c-section scar too. It is just a momma marking. I feel the exact same way that it is not beautiful to me either. Maybe it comes with time? Or life change. So, I know just what you mean. Thanks for being willing to talk about this!!!
