Re: When did the stretchmarks come for you?

I already had some on my hips from puberty. But I've gotten some on my lower belly during this pregnancy, probably started at about 30 weeks. And I've definitely gotten more in the past couple days since baby has dropped.

I'm not too bothered though. I really expected it.

I didn't really get any till the last two months. I was so sick through most of my pregnancy I actually only gained 6 pounds but I was already overweight so it was okay. I gained those 6 lbs in the last two months when I finally got over the terrible morning sickness. I thought I was lucky for not getting any but I had so many by my due date.

There's no option for never!

This was my single worst fear before and during pregnancy. I got nothing. Not one. I applied cream religiously, gained 30lbs and drank a lot of water. Those were the only things I heard MIGHT work. I put all of my weight in the front like a huge basketball and for months could feel my skin stretching. Somehow, despite having stretch marks on other parts, I dodged the bullet. But here's the sucky part: I got a really dark linea negra, instead! Ugh.

LandSalm0n, this is what I'm afraid of! I'm almost there and none yet, but who knows...oh well.
