    'When I look down I see stretch marks that are here to stay': Professional runner and mother-of-two posts candid photos that show the REAL effect having a baby can have on a woman's body




    From the photographs the world sees of celebrities so soon after they have given birth, it would be easy to think that having a baby doesn't do much to the overall shape of your body.
    It would be even easier to assume that the fitter and healthier you are, the less pregnancy will take its toll on your stomach.
    Which is why these incredibly honest and inspiring photos, from elite athlete, Stephanie Rothstein Bruce, have gone viral and are all the more surprising - they show a bodily experience that is similar to most women's.
    And it's not always pretty.

    'When I look down, I see stretch marks that are here to stay, ab muscles that need continued strengthening, legs that are powerful, and feet that are ready to fly!' the 32-year-old elite pro runner recently posted on her Instagram page, which she uses to spread her positive message about running and being a mother through the #journeywithsteph hashtag.
    'It [her stomach] still looks like a hot mess but the stability and strength is coming back to my core,' she writes in another frank post.
    While Ms Rosthein Bruce, from Arizona, is currently training for the Olympics, aiming to qualify for the 10,000 metre run as part of Team USA, she is also the mother to two adorable babies, aged just 21 months and six months.

    I can run 5:20 for a half marathon, but I still pee my pants
    She uses her Instagram page to talk about the changes that every body goes through after giving birth, however unappealing they are to look at.
    'I can run 5:20 pace for a half marathon, but I still pee my pants, have diastasis recti, stretch marks, and other postpartum issues,' Ms Rosthein Bruce shared online in one post.
    'I share this so moms and soon-to-be moms know you can still get back to your athletic self, have big goals, be a mom, have imperfections, don't be embarrassed by them, and have confidence in yourself.'

    Reason for being: She says that she shares such realities in her posts so that other mothers can know they can get back to their athletic selves
    The 32-year-old is unusual in her field, having taken a break from training to begin a family when she did, but it looks like she will qualify for the next Olympics.
    However, life hasn't always been easy for the mum of two.
    After years of illness and injury, Ms Rosthein Bruce was diagnosed with Coeliac disease in 2010, but instead of letting this stop her from running, she used it as platform to get better and run faster - launching her running career and blog.

    And while her Instagram page was initially set up to keep friends and family updated with motherhood and running, it has since become much bigger.
    Ms Rosthein Bruce now boasts over 22,000 followers on Instagram and has a website where she shares detailed news about her profession.
    Proof that pregnancy doesn't have to end any dreams - whether athletic or not - Ms Rosthein Bruce is evidently a master at juggling kids and a training routine.
    But what sets her apart from the other 'fitspo' posters out there is that she is real - her life has had setbacks and her body isn't perfect, but she's still supremely fit.
    Anyone for a jog?

    'When I look down I see stretch marks that are here to stay'

    That's a Howard Stern quote if ever there was one.
