Re: Sretch marks?

One of my cousins didn't get any at all with her first...I got a few but not nearly as bad as some people I know. With this one, all the old stretch marks just seem to be getting longer! I had actually expected to get them much worse because when I had my growth spurts during puberty, I got stretch marks all over from growing taller so fast...I figured pregnancy would do me in for sure!

One thing I read somewhere when I was pregnant with DJ was about a study someone had done to see if getting stretchmarks was in any way related to tearing during labor...like if your skin is really elastic and doesn't get stretchmarks, you'll be less likely to tear? They found a slight correlation...just thought it was interesting...
