    LOL, I did a "blind shave" down there the other day. I have no idea how it all turned out?!?! Interesting about the scar (and the tattoo Noelle). I've had a belly tattoo that has been there for all of my pregnancies, and it handles all the stretching and growing really well thankfully. Every pregnancy I get asked if I had it done recently, because it doesn't look like its even been through one pregnancy. I must have some "elastic skin" genetics or something... very thankful for that! Anyway, even if things do get distorted during pregnancy, they usually return to normal afterward.

    Laurie - Mine was a bit of a blind trim last time too! This time I did some blind trimming, then used a hand mirror to see my progress. I'm sure it's not perfect but better at least! I hear ya on the elastic skin. Mine does well with stretching too! I have stretch marks on my hips from when I was much younger...but my belly fared well last pregnancy. The ONLY stretch mark I got last time was less than 1" long and was beside my belly ring hole. Had I not had the piercing, I would have been fine. I hope I make it out of this pregnancy ok too. I haven't used any belly cream this time. Eeeeps!

    CRAP! Do they mostly come when you're deflating? After baby is born?

    Ditto. Mine would look at me like this if I asked him --->

    AFA stretch marks, I have yet to see any new ones this pregnancy. My first, I got them all over the sides of my butt and undersides of my breasts, but none on my stomach. With #2, I got ONE new one right at the top of my belly button where a ring would go if I had had one (random, right?). And I didn't get it until my last week so I'm not out in the clear yet. My mom gained over 90 lbs when she was pregnant with me and only got a handful on her hips so I guess I have fairly stretchy skin genetically (?).

    As u can see by my one bare belly pic I am very prone to stretch marks. I had them on my hips b4 high school from a growth spurt even. I had one kid ask why I had spider webs on my belly when I was prego with elora, lol. Just something I'm used to now I guess, I have them everywhere, boobs, hips, legs, belly, arms, everywhere.

    I had no stretch marks first pregnancy, got some with my second, and noticed a new area a couple of days ago. Not too bad though.

    My DH would never trim me either. Lol. I do the blind shave thing too. It usually works out ok. I think

    I think my boys just stretch me so friggin' big that I couldn't escape them. But even with DD, I didn't really have ANY, until afterwards I noticed I got a couple on each side (love handle area). Now I have them all across my belly from hip to hip. None on my thighs or boobs though.

    stretch marks are genetically inclined right?

    I didn't have any from DS, but he was early. So far so good with this little one, but it's still early.

    Now I do have some on my hips and boobies from weight gain and loss over the years, but they are not terrible.
