Modern women aren’t afraid of showing off whether it comes to stretch marks, pregnancy, body hairs or cellulite present on thighs. Even the most fashion conscious women now openly flaunt her physical weakness.

It became a trend recently, and nearly all the women had photoshoot to track progress their protruding stomach with baby.
