Stretch marks and post baby belly

Let me just start off by saying we are beautiful no matter what shape we are.

How is it that some Mom's can bounce back from having a baby and don't look like they have given birth at all? And then there are those of us who will carry the signs for years to come.
I am definately not one of those Mom's who has the perfect, no stretch mark no skin hanging, belly's. I've worked really hard to lose the baby weight. 70 pounds were lost after Spencer was born. But I still have those darn stretch marks and the skin that is so not tight. And a weird fold where I was sliced into, all 3 times. So I'm curious as to how many Mom's out there don't have the perfect belly. And I won't even get started on the post nursing boobs. That is so for another post.

You look awesome girl - especially for 3 c-sections. I would love to have your body.

I agree. You look awesome and you are my inspiration to lose my tummy. 50lbs with each kid has left its mark on me :)

I am feeling your pain Kirst. I have that c-section fold from my 1st birth, and with Alexis I gained my most at 50lbs! I've lost 30 so far in her first 4 weeks and even when I lose another 20 (more would be nice) the skin will still be wrinkly and stretch marks too! If you find a cure for it let me know and I'll do the same if I find anything. But I think a tummy tuck is the only cure, lol!
p.s you look great even if the skin underneath still has signs of babies being in there you are more motivated then me with all your running!! Keep it up :)

Yep, it goes with the territory of having a baby. So worth as I am sure everyone would agree. And boobs, yes let's not go there quite yet...
