    HNT #19

    I'm posting a part of myself I hate the most.

    It's not a stomach, it's a belly because it's big.

    The squeamish have been warned!

    When I got pregnant, my friends all told me that I wouldn't get
    big or have stretch marks because I'm a big girl.

    They were wrong. When daughter #1 was developing,
    she left horizontal stretch marks.

    Daughter #2 left vertical stretch marks.

    Combine the two and you have plaid.






    Happy HNT!

    Now go see the Half Nekkid King
    Here.

    *poke* I looked but I dont really see any marks? just a lickable tummy!

    Phain said...

    My two kids left me marked as well - I've thought many times about a stretch-mark edition of HNT - but I haven't found the guts (pun intended) to do it yet - kudos to you, the pic is great! ~HHNT~

    I think you must be your worst critic! I think it is a great picture...
    Happy HNT!

    Suze said...

    Jenn, they show the true beauty of a loving mother. Love your cute tummy button.

    Happy HNT sweetie. ;)

    Don't be so hard on yourself. Stretch marks is something we can inherit I believe...at least so I've been told.
    Happy HNT!

    Madame X said...

    Good for you!
    I've got stretch marks too and at one time I was disgusted by them but now I realize that my body CRADLED ANOTHER HUMAN WITHIN IT!!!!
    How cool is that?
    Strech marks are just a reminder of what we have accomplished!!!!

    Happy HNT SG!!!

    DZER said...

    I don't see the marks either ...

    happy HNT beautiful ... *smooch*

    HM said...

    Our stretch marks are reminders of our beautiful children. I, too am covered with them.

    I think you look great!! Happy HNT!!

    WDKY said...

    Well, that's fine... you're a REAL woman! Happy HNT x

    Lara said...

    Hey, move your hands, I couldn't see the stretch marks!!! (Don't worry, we all have them. Oddly enough, mine are on my upper thighs instead of the tummy, and were all from kid #3. You'd think the first two kids would've caused some too!)

    Stretch marks & the belly are nature's way of reminding us we have kids when they're driving us so nuts that we're really really trying to forget. hehe

    Happy HNT!

    No One In Particular said...

    Yeah, that's a "gutsy" post. Very brave, but I see nothing at all wrong with your tummy!

    Happy HNT!

    bubbles said...

    I agree with No one in particular. I too have 2 children(boys) and I am not ready for the tummy shot...those dern strechmarks.mine are all vertical....does that mean it will make me look thinner??LOL! HAppy HNT!

    Crimson said...

    Robyn said...

    Jay said...

    Stretch marks don't detract. They are a sign of courage and honor. Very nice pictures! Happy HNT! :)

    lily said...

    sexy is about who you are and not what you look like - and you are a very sexy girl ;)

    Happy HNT!

    Jericho said...

    yes, you are sexy... and part of what makes you so is where you've been...

    your words are wonderful, as always

    Avery's mom said...

    terry said...

    BTExpress said...

    Oooo, very nice belly button sexy. HHNT!

    honkeie2 said...

    So far I see nothing wrong here....Happy HNT. The sad part about the things 'we' see wrong with ourselves is just that....we are the only ones that have a problem with it. ;-)

    barman said...

    You look fine SG, actually very sexy. Don't tell Mr Sign.

    I know guys are less self contious than women but I had a full blown gall bladder surgery that left a huge scar. I was so self contious of it for some time. Now I just accept that it is part of what makes me.

    By the way, I love the belly button. Happy HNT.

    Thomcat said...

    slurp!

    happy hnt!

    barefoot_mistress said...

    Reading your HNT, then your previous post, i'd say the stretch marks were so worth it.

    I am crying right now after reading your story about your friends boy...I am so sorry, and as for advice, you know, as a mom, and I am one too, that no pain could be worse. I really dont know what to suggest...but, I send my best thoughts and prayers for your friend.

    Tumbleweed said...

    You're a hotty, I don't see a dang thing that isn't touchable there. The plaid thing is hysterical!!

    MamaKBear said...

    Plaid?!? You crack me up!

    I wish I had stretch marks...I'd be proud of them!

    Happy HNT! :)

    crabcake said...

    PAH! I don't see anything wrong with your belly! You are too blasted hard on yourself, missy!

    Robert van de Walle said...

    Bold women wear plaid.

    I love the emotional risk of this pic. very alluring!

    Yumm.

    Top cat said...

    Nonny said...

    You are my HNT idol. Plus your way braver than me.

    I don't think it looks bad at all. Trust me, I work for an OB and I've seen ALOT worse looking stomachs than that.

    one said...

    Stretch marks are something to be proud of. My wife calls them her "natural" tattoos.

    Happy HNT!

    The Taker of Gist said...

    Happy Gistday. I mean Thursday.

    Shay said...

    That's cool!
    they must neutralise each other because I don't really see anything!

    ~TVS said...

    LOL at the plaid remark. Maybe a checkerboard?
    HHNT!

    Fridaysweb said...

    SG, I like your tummy very much. May I lick it? I have this thing about wanting to lick attractive people. Not in a weird-wacko way, but just a little taste. I think you're beautiful.

    littlefeet said...

    hey...does this mean i might get to have plaid too?? :) then we would match...

    peace...

    HNB said...

    Okay I don't see big or stretch marks. What I see is a very cute belly button. Quite lickable and tickable and delightful.

    Spinning Girl said...

    Very cute!
    Finally made it here! Happy HNT ... or actually HNS.

    American Navel said...

    This is my favorite HNT that you have ever done! I can't believe I didn't get here on HNT day to enjoy it with everyone else! BLAST MY INCOMPETENCE!

    Also, what would you think about submitting these to my blog? please!?!?
