LOL about them showing up post-partum. With my first son, I couldn't see any stretch marks while I was actually pregnant. The second he popped out, I could suddenly see them. The very first thing I said after he came out was, "Are those stretch marks?!!!" Yeah, I was upset. They "weren't there" before he was born and then suddenly, they were.

My hips are covered in stretch marks.

Re: weight gain mostly on hips/thighs/butt?

Is there a way we can get some sort of therapy for this, bc I too just sometimes break down when I look at my hips and butt. I absolutely hate hate hate it.
I do have a friend though who has my bumpy butt as her arm....now I'm not sure if I'd rather have a fattiicious butt or arm.

My thighs and the very beginning of my butt still have the marks. I hate them. My actual rear end is just oddly shaped.

On another note, I have a stretch mark on my belly button! My belly button! I thought to myself, seriously kid?!

Re: weight gain mostly on hips/thighs/butt?

Yep put me in the "fat bottom girls" club
I gained weight in the hips, butt and thighs long before I got my baby belly. Oh and I should add that my boobs went from a D to a G! I totally feel wide and gross but it is just how my body responds to pregnancy so I try not to let it get me down. I am usually pretty slender but I do have "birthing hips" too when not with child. Do as I do and constantly remind yourself that it will go away when the baby is born.

I gain weight somewhat all over, but definitely in my butt and thighs. I have 10 pounds left to lose, and I know it's all there....

Re: weight gain mostly on hips/thighs/butt?

By 8 weeks pregnant I got stretch marks on my butt crack. I have a grouping of like 5. I had only gained a few pounds at that point too. No fair.

I'm all butt and thighs this time around. It's depressing.
