I feel like I'm the only woman in the world that got stretch Bee. 1 child; Halifax, NS, Canada 683 posts

Everyone that I know that had a child doesn't have one stretch mark. I see girls on Facebook posting their after baby bodies and they're completely stretch mark free. I got them on my hips, breasts, thighs and then when I tried to workout and lose my baby fat....I got them on my legs because I tried Aquafit (working out in the water) and I guess all the bouncing in the water didn't agree with my skin. I literally can never show my legs again....unless they disappear or fade (because they're not deep)....which I highly doubt. The only place I didn't get them was on my belly....makes no sense!



I'm full of stretch marks! It sucks....I went from 120lbs stick thin.....to now 170lbs and scarred all over :( I can never wear a bikini again....let alone go swimming because I'm embarrassed of how my legs look now.



Why does it seem like I'm the only woman in the world going through this?

Your not....... Lol I have them real deep on my stomach. Makes me mad when I see girls without them. Not to mention I have some serious varicose veins that put the older folks to shame

Ha... I've got stretch marks that you wouldn't believe. My genetics suck. I swear if I look at my skin wrong then horrible stretch marks will appear.

I have stretchmarks on the back of my knees, top of my thighs, stomach, b**bs, and by my arm pits. They have faded a lot and I still wear shorts, tank tops, and a bikini.

I had stretch marks before I got pregnant. It is what it is. My husband still thinks I'm sexy and that's the only person that looks at my body so it isn't a huge deal to me.

The girls who post pictures are the ones who didn't get them, or they post pictures after they fade. Plenty of women get stretch marks, but they are not typically the ones to then put up pictures on FB showcasing them.

I have stretchmarks everywhere even from before I had kids. Like on my arms, shoulders, b**bs, belly, thighs, behind my knees, they're f**king everywhere. I think I am super prone to them.

I have stretch marks from my hipbones up to my b**bs. I also got stretch marks on my ankles when they got really swollen during pregnancy but I have freaking awesome genetics which is all kinds of fun.
