Stretch marks are the devil!

To those who are proud of your stretch marks, God bless you, but I HATE mine. I always knew I'd get them, but it's still hard. I tried everything to prevent them, hydration, exfoliating, bio oil, cocoa butter, healthy diet, exercise, and gaining weight slowly. I'm 36 weeks and only gained 17 pounds ( all in my belly it seems). Nothing stopped these awful marks because... Genetics. It's a constant reminder I was born with terrible genetics ( skin wise) and that will be passed down to my daughter. I so wish they didn't exist. My husband won't look at me with my shirt off and forget him touching me. I don't think I'll ever look at them and call them my tiger strips proudly. I know they'll fade, but they just always be there. 😔
