Time's ticking and baby's still kicking
« on: May 05, 2008, 07:32:39 PM »

Less than two weeks to go! I thought I would share this vid I stumbled on, as it's a pretty acurate portrayal of what I am going through right now. :)

I think the planet Saturn is a more accurate description... it's way larger than the moon, LOL. You can count my stretchmarks as the "rings".

As long as the baby is healthy you can deal with the marks.
 
I was told Cocoa Butter helps eliminate them.  That and sit ups pulls everything tight again.  What do I know. . . 
 
I carry a baby elephant on me. .. .  But I don't have stretch marks.  It's just a stretch to put my socks on!

Ha! I showed the video to my daughter and she said that's exactly what she figured was happening to her just before she gave birth last Dec.  

Stretch marks are a badge of honour! 

However, the ladies in my family are all convinced you can greatly reduce them with liberal use of skin cream containing lots of vitamin E.  Note, 9 lb babies are considered a norm in my family, so I expect the ladies know all about stretch marks.

Steve - men don't get stretch marks, must be something in the beer!

I was kidding my wife about my remark to Steve, that men don't get stretch marks, and she came came back with "How the heck would you know, you haven't seen the front of your gut for 25 years?"  I really thought she'd be more sympathetic after 42 years!
