Your words sound like how I felt during pregnancy.
You know what? 8 months PP, my belly looks like one of the worst twin PP bellies that I've seen. My tummy is like 2+twins belly but worse (I know, as we've compared
). Most days I'm okay with it, but not if I fixate on it. I really have had to work on accepting it. Now I'm trying to work to get my abdominal muscles back together as much as is possible, and only if they continue to present a problem would I consider surgery. I am very scared of post-breastfeeding breasts now, though!
And to heck with genetics and belly butters. I had both in my favor. My Mom never had stretch marks. She also never carried twins to 42 weeks!!!
I hope that however your body reacts to a twin pregnancy, that you'll find peace with it.
