F-ing stretch marks

Grrrr!

The ones I had from Jacob were small barely there, lower belly area. With Ethan they got a little longer ( he was largest baby) and maybe one or two new ones. Eli didn't even touch them(he was smaller). And now stretch marks are getting longer again! I sure hope it doesn't mean a super size baby! I'm scared.

Yep. I went a little mad when those "devastating" low-belly ones started to appear at 32 weeks. It was 34 weeks when the left side of my belly started ripping apart and 36 weeks before it got really bad over there. It was TODAY that my stretch marks finally reached all the way straight across the entire belly. Sad These are some big fatties.

I'm sorry girls. I can completely empathize with you both. I haven't gotten any new ones, but I still have plenty of time for then to appear. But, my stomach is seriously jacked-up from the girls. When I lost all my weight before this pregnancy my stomach was so stretched out & gross.

I still rocked a bikini. I dare someone to come say something.

For so long I just had a few that showed up on my hips, towards my back maybe around 20 weeks. Just little ones, maybe five or six on each side and pretty faint. Now towards the end I keep getting more and more and more coming around towards my front, and they're all getting longer and looking angrier/redder. Then it seemed like overnight I had a bunch pop up on one side of my belly button :confused: I hate those ones. I don't think I have any low belly ones but then I can't see that area so well.

Did anyone else get them on their breasts?? I did and I HATE THEM. I am cringing to think I will get more when my milk comes in.

I got them everywhere with Nicholas. It was no surprise as my mom has tons too. It looks like a tiger tried to claw my belly and I have them on my inner thighs, upper arms, and sides of my breast. Luckily they all faded to silver and *knock on wood* Emily hasn't made any new ones. I am thinking about trying out the mederma stretch mark cream when I am done breastfeeding.

Havn't noticed any new ones- but that doesn't mean they arn't there lol I had two little ones with my first pg but then after the section they had to stretch my belly to pry my dd out- I had a bunch. That was dissapointing! A few more with ds.

After dd my breast were covered in stretch marks- the joys of being a small b cup to a C/D cup!

my first baby gave me the tiger attack look on my butt and breasts but my stomach didn't get any. Luckily the really old ones haven't changed once they went silver.

I got a few silver ones on my thighs and I had one of the puple colored ones on my breasts after my milk came in. I think genetics plays a big part in this as my mom didn't have one stretch mark and she carried 3 babies.

I got some stretch marks on my belly this time around, but when I was delivering the Midwife commented that I didn't have any, s they must be barely noticeable. BUT, when I got my milk in, I got some pretty nasty ones on my bbs. Sad Dang stretchmarks. I'm sure my *** is all scratched up too haha.

I didn't have them until about 32 weeks, and they are right across the middle...I guess I was in denial about getting them, I really didn't think I would.
