i have also felt that up until just recently my son is now nine months old when i finally started loosing weight. and the fact i started to realize i am a mom i am proud to have my marks i have a reason for them. but until this i always had the lights off wore shirts and pants that coverd everything. and come to find out my husband thought it was a turn on he loves my belly. that helped alot too

Obviously if he is upset by you covering your body he either 1. doesn't notice them AT ALL (which is very common...they don't even remember seeing them until you point them out) or 2. knows about them but thinks you're sexy (as he should) and just wants you to be comfortable and sexy for him.

I look at stretch marks as a right of passage. You have a wonderful little miracle out of it (if not multiple miracles) and it's a way to prove it. I don't like them, but I don't let them bring my self esteem down.
If anything is going to turn your man off it's going to be lack of self esteem...they don't see the little things like we do and they are so smitten by the time your clothes are off..that finishing it out with feeling sexy will just make the sex that much better for both of you....because after you're ok with yourself, you'll see that he WANTS you! and then you'll feel even better day by time, each time you get intimate. :)

I think it happens to us all after we have a baby.
What worked for me was to go buy something that makes you feel sexy and hides the bits your not so happy with.
It wont take long for you to realize as i did that our hubby's don't care as much as you think regarding stretch mark's.
Trust me i look like a tiger naked, my hubby calls them my tiger stripes and they don't bother him in least and they don't bug me anymore ether.
