stretch


dress: Ross, cardigan: Nordstrom Rack, sandals: F21


no JF yet. the waiting game is killing me! but now i'm really wondering what the ominous chirp was all about yesterday. 

you guys. shit just got real. REAL DEPRESSING that is. yesterday...i found...sob...stretch...marks...on my belly. i thought i was in the clear since my mom never got them and i had gone the whole pregnancy up until this point without getting them. but they are here and i'm devastated. i can never wear a bikini again. i can just see my future trips to the beach: walking from my minivan in a lands end tankini with matching sarong and lime green crocs. *shudder* it's so sad. stretch marks are unfair. what is their purpose other than to upset women? and why hasn't anyone invented a way to get rid of them? scientists need to get on that shit. like, NOW. 

i had a nice dramatic, vain cry about it yesterday. but really now i feel like i didn't properly say goodbye to my pre-JF body. i should have taken pictures of myself in a bikini and said "goodbye tiny tummy that is stretch-mark and fancy free!" i'm going to miss that tummy i think.

  1. Wait until they become super pronounced with your subsequent pregnancies and your child (the devil who started it all) says with disgust, "Mommy, what ARE those things?" yes, your darling niece said that recently. You're going to be fine! They recede, and you're young! Have faith and get out the Shea butter!

  3. You look so freaking adorable! And when I gained the freshman 15 in college, I got stretch marks. Still have them. That's how fast I stretched out. I still shea butter that bitch like its my worst enemy. It's gotten a lot better though!

  4. I didn't get stretch marks until I was exactly 36 weeks pregnant and then I saw the first one, and I knew it had friends joining him. I cried too. Stretch marks are stupid, but they do fade, and you will not care as much as you think once the little guy gets here.

  6. A friend of mine used bio oil on a snowboarding scar she got on her hip. She pointed it out to me and I couldn't even find it! I'm nervous for stretch marks when it's my turn, but there is always bio oil!
