I got stretch marks around my tummy when I was pregnant. They told me not to scratch when it’s itchy because it will result to stretch marks but I can’t help it. It’s alright to have it in my tummy since I am not wearing swimsuits. I am proud to have tiger stripes on my tummy because it only proves that I was able to nurture a child inside me. Not everyone can have the chance to be pregnant and stretchmarks serve as our trophy. How cool is that?
I take Depo Provera(DMPA) a month before Elijah turned one and still using it until now because I am not religious when it comes to taking of pills. I might forget about taking pills everyday so DMPA works best for me. Since then, I always gain weight from 3-4 kilos every three months. I was 55 kilos last November 2011 and will check my new weight next month. I wonder how much kilo do I gain after celebrating holiday. I am getting bigger each day and tiger stripes are getting visible in my legs, I can’t even wear shorts.
This weight gain happened because I let it. I eat a lot and never thought of getting this big so I have to pay for it. If I want to use skirts or shorts, maybe wearing boots can hide the stretchmarks. I’ll borrow my sister’s cowgirl boots the next time I am going to town.
