They are normal.
Some women gain them, some women do not, yet we are all equally as beautiful as each other. We have all endured the same thing. Pregnancy. And for that I applaud all of you. If you have gained stretchmarks throughout your pregnancy, that’s ok. I love that women call these their ‘tiger stripes.’ Absolutely! You have earned those! Don’t ever be envious of the mothers who didn’t get a single one, because they have had changes in other ways, like hair loss or weight fluctuation. Pregnancy and motherhood bares challenges on our bodies. Let’s support each other and look to one another as inspiration. You are all amazing.
