Have you gotten any stretch marks from this pregnancy? If so, where?


If you've had previous pregnancies, did you get stretch marks? When & where?


What if anything are you doing to try to prevent/reduce them?

stretch marks... more like a map of the country! I have them all over my butt, hips, thighs and under my boobs!!!!

Ive been putting lotion on daily but it doesn't seem to be helping to much.

not this time around, yet.

yep, i got them last time on my stomach and two on each thigh (small, thankfully) at 39 weeks pregnant.

i used lotion last time religiously and got them, so i'm not doing anything this time around. i can't control the weight gain of the baby, nor would i want to, and i feel that his size is what caused the stretch marks so i'm learning to live with them as "battle wounds"

None this time. *knock on wood*
I got two very faint ones last time, 4 DAYS before I had Em.
I really don't want anymore.
I don't do anything to prevent them, they are genetic... if you get them, you get them.

Have you gotten any stretch marks from this pregnancy? If so, where? I've gotten a few more on my inner thighs


If you've had previous pregnancies, did you get stretch marks? When & where? Towards the end with ds I got them on my inner thighs, hips, and boobs.


What if anything are you doing to try to prevent/reduce them? I use cocoa butter but only when I remember which is rarely so not really a big help...

I have some left from my first pregnancy but no new ones yet. They didn't show until about 36-38 weeks last time though.

I did get them last time and they were on the lower sides of my belly.

Last time I was always rubbing tummy butter on but it didn't seem to make a difference. This time I haven't done anything.

If you've had previous pregnancies, did you get stretch marks? When & where? No previous preg


What if anything are you doing to try to prevent/reduce them? Using cocoa butter stick. I heard they don’t prevent them but they help get rid of them faster after you have the baby…hope they are right.

If you've had previous pregnancies, did you get stretch marks? When & where? I got them all over my thighs (all the way down to my knees!) and my bbs. I got them all early and they were bright red. I got my first belly ones at 35 weeks, but they remained on my lower stomach (easily hidden by pants) and never got very bright. They all faded very quickly and are not very visible.


What if anything are you doing to try to prevent/reduce them? Last time I used Palmer's this time I'm using bio oil. I fully expect to get them again but the later the better. lol
Am surprised my thighs haven't gotten them again.

If you've had previous pregnancies, did you get stretch marks? When & where? I only had a tiny little centimeter long one from DD.


What if anything are you doing to try to prevent/reduce them? Just moisturizing!

Have you gotten any stretch marks from this pregnancy? If so, where? Yeah . On my lower belly (I cant see them, I notice from a pic), my butt, inner thighs, boobs, and on my side. Thankfully they are individually not too bad, just a lot of little ones. I guess that would happen to most people who gain 25 pounds in 6 months


If you've had previous pregnancies, did you get stretch marks? When & where?


What if anything are you doing to try to prevent/reduce them? Got some palmer's for stretch marks. I don't think its doing very much, but makes me feel better about them and I love the smell. I might get some raw shea butter after I run out of this stuff.

None yet - using lotion every day, but don't think it really helps all that much...

I haven't gotten any new ones yet, just the same old ones from weight loss/gain previously (not preg).

I am using Palmer's for stretch marks, not sure if it will do anything, but it helps mentally lol (plus, DH rubs it on my belly for me...like a little bonding moment).

I got them with my son. First pregnancy but no new ones with this one or my daughter. I have them mostly on my stomack and boobs. Luckly no where else yet. Hopefully with my weight staying down with this one I won't get any new ones.

I just found 3...upper abdomen under my right boob.

If you've had previous pregnancies, did you get stretch marks? When & where?
I don't remember when...but on my lower tummy...from hip bone to hip bone...ugh!! They were more noticible after I gave birth than while i was preggo.


What if anything are you doing to try to prevent/reduce them? Nothing...if they come...they come. All in being a mommy :-)

I got a few last time on my underbelly and hips, but they mostly faded. This time I haven't noticed any yet, but I got them in the last month or so last time. I use vitamin E oil. My sister swears by it and says she got very few even though she was HUGE with her last one. I put in on morning and night with my first, but this time I only remember at night and sometimes miss that too Need to be better at it because it maybe helped last time...
