How can you tell the difference between new and old stretch marks? I have a few from my first pregnancy and I've noticed as I've been lathering on the lotion there seem to be more than before, but I can't tell if they are recent or not?!?
my old ones are actually starting to look pinkish, very similar to how they looked when I first got them. Mine didn't turn red until after delivery, and then about a year later they faded to silvery/white. But now they're starting to look pink again. Weird.
I think I noticed a new one this morning but I can't remember the old pattern that well. I'm going to have to start paying attention. Not that it matters, but I guess it would be nice to know how bad I get them this time compared to last!
So far, the only place I'm seeing stretch marks in my breasts. After I retired from gymnastics, my boobs grew 2 cup sizes in a matter of like a month. My old marks (from back then... I was 17 at the time) are a white/light color. Not that noticeable unless I'm focused on them. My new ones from this pregnancy are purple/pink.
I've been really, really good about putting my oil and lotion on my belly, but not so much my boobs. I have none on my belly yet, but my boobs are a disaster haha! Its ok, only me and DH see them anyway
