So has anyone started getting stretch marks yet?

With my first pregnancy I only got them on my legs and hips, and not one on my belly. But already I am getting them on my belly.

Anyone else getting any?

Thank you to Mistyx6 for my siggy!

I still have zero stretch marks and I think it's because with all four previous pregnancies I have used the stretch mark cream they sell at the maternity store. I had plans to go buy my first jar for this pregnancy today.

No, not yet. I didn't have any until week 40 with my son. He was a week overdue and that last week, I got a bunch! That seems unfair...

I didn't get any until I was 36 weeks along, except a couple of little ones here and there. I'm not worried about getting any because my stomach is absolutely covered with them anyway. They're almost invisible now, so they don't really bother me.

None so far but I've been losing weight or staying the same for a few weeks because I can hardly eat anything without making me sick. I'm using stretch mark cream as well so maybe that is helping. But I have a feeling since my frame is very small the baby really doesn't have any place to go but out. So ask this same question in a few weeks LOL.

I don't have any yet (well just old ones on my hips from college!), and I just bought some Palmer's Cocoa Butter formula for stretchmarks. I've heard heredity has a lot to do with it too though. My mom only got them on her hips and boobs, but her belly was spared. So I hope I'm the same way. But I'm using the cream just in case!!

Maica destroyed my belly and i used every cream in the book!! its definately a hereditary thing, unfortunately, if you're going to get them you will. staying hydrated can be an important factor too.

Beautiful Siggy by Claire!

None here. I was lucky enough not to get any with my first pregnancy either. I do use Palmer's, but am not sure if that has anything to do with the lack of stretch marks.
