Anyone make it through 3 or more pregnancies without getting stretchmarks?

I have three kids and am pregnant with my fourth. I made it through the first three without stretchmarks but I am wondering what my chances are of making it through another pregnancy without getting them. I know it is totally vain to be worrying about this but I am just wondering if there is a possibility.

First off I am sooo jealous of you!!! I get stretch marks without being preggo. LOL. I would say if you keep the weight gain about the same and stay about the same size as with the others then it should be fine.

This is my sixth baby. My only stretchmarks are on the underside of my breasts.

I think you have a good chance of avoiding them.

It's all genetics you lucky duck! I got stretchmarks during my 6th grade growth spurt so I'm pretty sure it's going to happen while I'm preggo, LOL!

I'm on #4 (almost 37 weeks) and the only one I have is where I used to have my belly button pierced. And that showed up with #1 but has stayed the same since

I just had #4 and have avoided them so far! (other than a few small ones on my breasts...but I get REALLY engorged with each kiddo...on a side note, isn't that an awful tease for poor DH!!) I've gained roughly the same weight in almost the same way with each munchkin. Plus my Mom never had them, FWIW.
