Another milestone

I knew I was forgetting something yesterday when I was talking about milestones. Here's a dubious one. My first stretch marks appeared this past week. People are saying it's early. Sigh. It's not exactly unexpected. I've seen my mother's stomach. I already knew I didn't have good genes for stretch marks. Contrary to what some might think, you can't control, reduce, or eliminate strech marks by applying lotions, cocoa butter, etc. (Products claiming otherwise are lying.) You either have genes that are resistant to strech marks or you don't. Apparently, I don't.

The good news is, for my second son, I didn't get a single stretch mark.

The day after I wrote this entry, more strech marks appeared. At first, I had two. Now I have five!

Welcome to the club. My doctor called them Badges of Honor.

I suppose that can be my nickname now -- "Stretch."

LOL! Love the nickname! Going to start using it immediately!
