Im 42 with two grown kids and Im still am affected with the stretch marks all on the front of my stomach. But the one thing I can tell you, my husband has NEVER, EVER made me feel any way about them. He says they are a sign of maturity. its great when your husband doesnt care about those things, as a woman I do know how you feel, I still dont like to look at myself naked or with underwears and still feel insecure in front of him, but its not because he makes me feel that way, its just me. I agree 100% with reb_hun about earning our stripes! Ive even heard, theyre just battlescars of motherhood, our fight will never end when it comes down to them, b/c we'll fight anyone for them...lol!!!! Congratulations also!!!View Thread
