Aw, bless, he sounds like a well-meaning guy who hasn’t got a clue about how his gift comes across. It would probably just make me laugh if my DH did that, mostly because I find it endearing that they’re so clueless in their attempts to be helpful sometimes.

@KH:  I would have made a sarcastic comment to him, but dont be upset he didnt mean anything by it .

for me it depends on presentation. If he tossed it at you and said something along the lines of  “ummm you really need this, it’s getting gross” THEN I’d be upset. But it seems he meant it as a gift and with good intentions. I would appreciate he is accepting my body and it’s changes 🙂

My Fiance tells me we are putting Palmers on a daily basis when I’m pregnant.(even though I don’t even think that works!!!) He is Carmel color tan Puerto Rican and I am white. On his body, stretch marks show a lot worse than on mine. I think bc his sister’s pregnancy stretch marks showed so much he is totally freaked out by them now. I know I will probably get them but I think they will show less bc I’m very white Casper looking. l wouldn’t worry about it, he is probably trying to be helpful in “preventing” them but i think they are inevitable. It’s a sucky thing but the baby will make it worth it!

Glad you are getting your head in the game about this and feeling better!! Be proud of how your body changes, it is not just YOUR body anymore! It’s changing to support and give life to your little one! Let everyone else keep their hang ups about what pregnant women are supposed to look like.

Easier said than done, lol, because of course it bothers you too! But your opinion is the only one that matters about what you look like.
