    thought i would do a thread on this to get ladies feeling better about themselves if they are stressing over their marks like i was!! ..

    im expecting my first baby and up until 3-4 days ago i hadnt had no marks whatsoever! so when i found them i was shocked ! they appeared out of nowhere and iv been usuing oils and creams religiously ! just proved if your gonna get them your gonna get them. my mum and a couple women i know didnt get any at all but one of my friends did and she said they went after , just faded cuz she kept using her cream :)

    anyway how i learned to see it is if its the price we have to pay for having our gorgeous babys then i know what i would pick every single time!! :D theres nothing wrong with havin stretch marks or any other imperfections! they are the marks of being a mum ! and there's far more important things in life to worry about than a few stretch marks! they are not gonna be as bad as they look now once you lose the weight and tone up, using ya creams they will always fade and look better! but our bodys are not ruined! we are tigers who have earned our stripes! :D i was a fitness freak and even though i know my body wont ever be the same, i couldnt care less!!. so what if im not going to feel comfy walking round in a bikini anymore.. theres some gorgeous one pieces and kaftans out there that make ya look stunning!! :)..

    heres an inspirational quote .. keep ya chin up girlys you are all beautiful !! xx

    a mark for every breath you took, every blink, every sleepy yawn.
    for everytime you sucked your thumb, waved hello, closed your eyes and slept in the most perfect darkness.
    one for every time you had the hiccups , one for every dream you dreamt within me.
    it isnt very pretty anymore, some may even say its ugly.
    thats ok.
    it was your home, it held you until my arms could and for that, i will always find something beautiful in it :)
