Stretchmarks..

Hi Ladies,

Has anyone started seeing stretchmarks with this pregnancy? I thought I saw 3 last night, but this morning nothing was there. I use Vaseline on my belly every night before I go to bed. I know stretchmarks are mostly genetic, anyways if I do get them, I don't want to say I didn't do anything to help not getting them..lol. With my DD I was lucky and didn't get any..but that was 5 years ago, so who knows..

I've gotten some :( I've been putting Bio-Oil on my belly, but I've heard it's genetic as well...my mom got them bad, so hopefully mine won't be as bad, but they're definitely there!

During my last pregnancy I used Palmers, they have an anti stretchmark lotion and an oil. Both worked really well, I never had any itchy feeling. The only issues with those products were that they stained my clothes..and the staines never came out.

I have them from DD, so if I have any new ones I really can't tell lol. I do itch a lot for whatever reason bellow my belly button, but of course I can't see that low to check

I have them from my first however with my belly expanded out, the stretch marks aren't visible right now, I guess they are literally stretched out. I'll be able to see them again after I deliver.

Not yet, knock on wood. Although I'm not holding my breath - I have a feeling they're a-comin'. :smileysad:

I don't have them yet either but they're probably going to start showing up soon. I got strech marks on my hips going through puberty so I'm thinking I'm prone to them...

So far no new stretchmarks. My oldest did a really good job of making my belly, thighs, hips, but, breasts, and arms look absolutely horrible. My son added a whole 2 new stretchmarks to the whole mix, but by that point my belly was already so bad it didn't matter. When the sales lady at Motherhood asked me at the beginning of my pregnancy if I was interested in buying the Palmer's Body Butter because it helps prevent stretchmarks I just laughed and told her that there's no point in trying to prevent what is already there.
