Ok, I have stretch marks from bearing the fruit of my husband's loins (also known as Rowan). I'm ok with that, I don't find them disgusting or repulsive and neither does my husband. I can't help but feel when I see women discussing stretch marks in such a negative way on other forums (the I really don't wanna be one of those young girls that have a baby and my body is done for....how can I prevent from getting ugly stretch marks after my baby is born?? chicks), I can't help but feel that they are selfish and immature. I mean, it almost seems like that's the thing they fear the most and I just think that's shallow in the grand scheme of bringing a new life into the world. Maybe I view my body differently than they do, I'm not sure. Any thoughts on this issue?
