March Birthstone

If you were lucky enough to be born in the third month of the year, you are indeed charmed. March birthdays are lucky in many different ways. March is the end of a long winter for many people, it is when we begin to see the first signs of spring.  It is the month for the Luck of the Irish with the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day on March 17th.  March is considered the first month of the new year by the early Roman calendar.

Another reason people born in March are lucky is their birthstone is aquamarine. The gemstone has always been considered lucky by sailors. They used to wear or carry them to ensure their safety at sea and a safe return.  They also believed that it kept them from getting seasickness. March has two zodiac signs that fall under the calendar month, but the majority of people born during the month of March are Pisces. It is so fitting that a water sign in the zodiac has a birthstone that resembles water.

The color of the March birthstone is a greenish-blue or a bluish-green. Some people think it looks like sea water, which is exactly what the name means in Latin. Most aquamarine gemstones come from mines in Brazil. Some also come from Madagascar, Mozambique, Nigeria, Zambia and Pakistan.  No matter what the shade of stone or the country of its origin, it looks great worn in many different ways. Even if you aren’t lucky enough to be born in the month of March, you can still wear the lucky birthstone, aquamarine.

Stretch Marks Showing

I never really thought a lot about stretch marks. I was lucky enough to never develop them during my pregnancies.  I was afraid that I would because my mom and sister both have them. I actually thought theirs were really bad until I saw coworkers one day at work by accident.

We were rearranging offices at work one day and we had even been allowed to go completely casual for the occasion with jeans and tennis shoes. We were moving some stuff off of the shelves in her office when her shirt lifts up a couple of inches when she was reaching over her head. It exposed about a two inch band around her stomach. I was shocked to see the way her skin on her stomach appeared.

She is the mother to six children. I have known her through the last three pregnancies, and she gains a lot of weight with each one, even though she quickly drops it after each child birth. I don’t know if the rapid weight loss each time contributes to the number of stretch marks she has or not, but I was just amazed at the sight of her stretch marks. They seemed to overlap from so many pregnancies. I guess they don’t bother her, she is extremely self-confident. She has way more confidence than I do. I know that some people will take this the wrong way, but it made me even happier that I had not gotten stretch marks with my pregnancies.
