Stretchies (aka stretch marks)

While I absolutely dislike the way that my stomach currently looks and I complain and all the "stretchies" that I got while pregnant the truth is that I love them. This is why:

"A mark for every breath you took, every blink, every sleepy yawn. One for every time 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 dreamed within me.

It isn't very pretty anymore. Some may even think it ugly. That's OK. It was your home. It's where I first grew to love you, where I lay my hand as I dreamed about who you were and who you would be. It held you until my arms could, and for that, I will always find something beautiful in it."

  1. I love this post and I totally agree with you. I am 24 weeks pregnant and so far no stretch marks, but if I get them, I will not be ashamed of them :)

  2. I saw something like this on another blog :)
    I gave you an award so go to my blog to check it out, wife! <3

  3. I feel the same! I don't love the way they look, but I'd take them all to have my baby girl! :)
