Of stretch marks and crazy brides...


Hiya Dolls,

Being preggo has brought on a few perks but it has also come with an avalanche of problems. My biggest is the stretch marks(am vain so sue me!). Anyhow, I knew the damage was bad but it didn't really sink in till the boy(I think we should start calling him the dad/baby daddy? Yes? No?) decided to make me stand in front of a lamp and scrutinize me for minutes on end. He was amazed at how much my body has transformed in such a short period of time but he was really shocked by the stretch marks. Understatement of the year-he was more in horror than shock!but am still in denial so i can't admit it. Weeps silently! Am all for loving your body,faults and all but lately when I look in the mirror I see an alien and this frightens me. I am worried about how I will look when it's all done, will I still love me. Too much to think about(sigh!!). But apparently when I see my little bundle of joy, it wont matter. But I want her(I don't know the sex but am rooting for a girl so we'll call it a she) to have a pretty confident mummy. So I went online to hunt for a cheap practical solution to my dilemma. Well, all I can tell you is that short of laser skin resurfacing(which is both quite expensive and unavailable in Uganda) there's not much I can do. I know most of you are screaming bio-oil..but trust me dolls. It doesn't work. But I wonder, will I at some point outgrow them. HELP!!

In other news, there's this show starting on the style network about brides competing for their dream plastic surgery procedures. Crazy,ain't it! Check it out here. Which begs the question, Would you? I wanna know what you dolls think. Me, I'd never. Am a big fat chicken! Too scared of going under the knife just for looks.

Feels good to be back.
