Re: When did the stretchmarks come for you?

I got them during puberty on my thighs but haven't gotten a single one with any of my three pregnancies. My doctor also said there is a correlation between vaginal tears and stretch marks... It's all about how elastic your skin is... Makes sense I guess. I have only ever had small superficial tears during childbirth too.

I have stretch marks on my knees from growing. I've had two pregnancies and no stretch marks. My BFF had them at 8 months.

My anecdote cancels out your anecdote. I got horrible stretchmarks with my first pregnancy and didn't tear at all.

Re: When did the stretchmarks come for you?

I got them the earliest with ds1, at around 7ish mos. All along my belly and thighs. With the others I only got a couple near my pubic bone when they dropped in the last couple weeks.

After birth. They are hard to see until your belly goes away sometimes.


I only got stretch marks after my first was born (I was 17 and 95 pounds). I only got them on my hips. Then I got 3 tiny ones on my belly after my 7th.

I do have some on my breasts now after nursing for 10 years.

I have some on my butt and thighs from life... but none from my pregnancies. I do nothing to prevent unless you count making sure I stay properly hydrated.

I am genetically predisposed to not get them, although my mother did get them on her boobs when they engorged. I didn't with my first, we'll see about with this one.

With my first I moisturized every single day from the day I found out I was pregnant. I ended up getting a lot the last month of my pregnancy on my stomach and some on my hips.
With my second, I didn't do anything to prevent more and only ended up with like one or two new ones.
I'm pregnant again but I'm only 7wks. So, not any yet.

Re: When did the stretchmarks come for you?

With my first I didn't see a single one until I got home from the hospital, I was so pissed! With my subsequent pregnancies they darkened during pregnancy but I didn't really get any new ones.
