OK, then birth and beyond it is. But it surely couldn't go here. Nothing can possibly simply go here you know.

Her first baby was over 10 pounds (unattended 6 day labor in rural Korea), but she got almost all her stretch marks and saggy belly from Robert's looooong gestational period (and he was under 9 pounds).


To anyone, it's not that you don't get ANY stretch marks before, it's that those last weeks CAN cause tons MORE stretch marks to show up...my stretch marks were reasonable until those last few weeks, when it got out of control (though mine are nothing compared to some I've seen).

I've heard about the combo-C-section/tummy-tuck thing... but I hadn't heard about doing the C-section 4 weeks before the baby is due. That seems way too risky.

http://www.plasticsurgery4u.com/proc..._delivery.html

"Dr. Bermant frequently gets questions from concerned women about having plastic surgery at the time of delivery or c-section. Elective tummy tuck surgery at time of birth is not a good idea. A woman's hormones have changed tissues so the child can pass. There is much stress on the body during delivery. Distended tissues have not yet shown what laxity will remain. There is a new born child wanting care and attention. "

True, it's not even recommended to *get pregnant* that soon, much less attempt a VBAC! It will only be like 18 months since her first c-sec, that's very little time to heal. I didn't feel normal just walking around for at least 7 months, much less feel ready to give birth.
I've had a natural birth and I'm not scared of doing that again, but the thought of doing a VBAC is still a little frightening to me and its been 2 years since my cs. You guys should cut the gal a little slack.

It actually hasn't even been 12 months, yet. Her other baby was born the middle of last September.

Humm I got my worst stretch marks way before 36 weeks. My body must have misunderstood that it was suppose to wait until then!

I'm still not convinced that Brittney's c/s was "elective." There might have been a medical indication for it. I certainly consider her upcoming c/s to be "medically necessary" considering it's only been a year since her last c/s.

I'm assuming this pg wasn't planned- my 2nd wasn't "planned" and I had an entire 8 months of motherhood before conceiving again.

wow, even worse. That's scary :

ftr - DS2 was 2 weeks late and I still didn't get any stretch marks, so you never know. With DS1, all my stretch marks were on my butt and boobs - not much a tummy tuck can do about those

i'm only 30 weeks, and I've had "unsightly stretch marks" for a while now!
post #31 of 38
My children will be 17mths apart and i'm going for a VBAC, I would have a HB if the mw would let me. I can't believe a celebrity would want a horrible scar but try to save herself some stretchmarks.
post #32 of 38
I had DS1 at 36 weeks via emg inducment and that certainly didn't save me from stretch marks haha.

Why does anyone pay attention to insipid morons like this?

I honor a woman's stretch marks as the "service stripes" of motherhood!

There were similar news articles when Madonna had her babies a few years ago. Darn unsightly strech marks.
post #35 of 38
what about the csection scar??????

ive had many big babies, and not one stretchmark on my belly. (yes i do in other places)

i think the other risks are far greater also.

but id think the csect scar alone would be enough

Huh? I thought Madonna had vag births?

I think she had an emergency c-section with her youngest, though I don't know about her daughter.
post #38 of 38
She had a ceasarian with Lourdes for FTP.

For her DS, she had placenta previa, and an emergency cesarian for delivery...the placenta probably got stuck on the scar, which is a risk factor for future pregnancies after a cesarian delivery. This is often not discussed with mothers as they are prepped for surgery.
