    Okay, so I decided to be brave and share mine too....I took a few with the flash on, but they showed my stretchmarks horribly, so I'm not posting those. I'm not quite brave enough to share that with the world, lmao!! This is 5 and a half years after having my son, I am currently at 84kgs....2kgs heavier than I was at full-term in my pregnancy!

    without the first (the huge gash across my tummy) I would not have survived to get the second, third or fourth.

    I was born 8weeks prem 25 years ago weighing only one pound, I had bowel blockages that were so severe that they required 30 cm of bowel removed at 3 days old (they didnt even know if Iwould survive the surgery),mum and dad had to make alot of very hard decisions with me, they fought very hard to keep me (I had surgery at days on my stomach, 10 months on my brain and lower back and 12 months I had an entire hip construction in the hopes it would enable me to walk, I can walk just and barely. I have very limited hip function)

    But I definately would not have made it to 25 without the first operation as I could not absorb food

    All these battles and still being able to have a child of your own and being around to see him grow up too, makes a physical scar look so insignificant.
    You need to be kind to yourself hun. I don't think anyone would think "OMG they look horrible! Soooo ugly!".
    People might just wonder what happened to you in the past to have received such scars and you'll find that most people will be empathic towards you and nothing else. They wont judge your looks due to some scars. They will judge your personality as being a strong and determined one.
    These scars are trophies to be proud of.

    I think everyone looks beautiful. Our bodies made our babies and that is priceless
    Um, can you please tell me where you live so I can move there, too? Who gets to wear a bikini on the beach in the middle of winter?! Was about 12 degrees here, I'm jealous!

    Well you should see *me*. I'm wearing thermal underwear, flannelette pyjamas, explorer socks and a hand knitted woollen cardigan so that I don't freeze when DD wakes to feed. Yep, I'm one hot mumma here! Lol. Oh well, at least I'm warm!

    sounds cosy!
    My trackies have pink bleach stains on them as well and a hole on the seam of the bum! I'm a perfect mess
