Have you noticed any? Or are you managing to avoid so far? What are you doing to try and prevent them if anything?

I had been lucky up until a few weeks ago with only a couple cat scratch scars expanding. Then I had a look at my belly recently and it's starting to get all torn up. I have a hard time looking at myself when I get out of the shower now. They gross me out. Can't wait til they fade!

Mine... ugh....

My stretch marks on my belly go around my belly button and are probably about 8 inches long from top to bottom. I have them dotting my sides now and on my upper thighs.

MAKE IT STOP!!!!!

I have some stretch marks too, they are getting progressively worse but whatever. Not much i can do, right? I use vaseline with cocoa butter every day but im thinking a lot of it is genetics (and me being a fatty chub-chub in general.) At like, 219 lbs, this is the biggest i have ever been and i dont think my back is exactly thanking me for it. lol. But it will all be worth it of course! Only a couple months left!

I don't have any yet. I haven't really done anything to provent them but both of my sisters hardly got any so I didn't figure I would get very many anyway. Though at the start of my pregnancy my boyfriend kept saying he was going to rub butter on my belly so I didn't get any. lol

I don't think I have any although it looks like a couple may be starting near my right hip. I can't tell yet though. I have one small one from my first in the same area.

I've never had any. And haven't noticed any so far. Eek but you never know. My belly is itchy and I can't use bio oil this time because for some reason the smell makes me nauseous!

I know the minute I post this, im going to grow 8, but as of now I have none. My mom didnt have any so im not too worried. I have been putting on almond oil lotion about 2-3 times a week. The thing I hate is my belly button ring scar. Its turned brown and big YUCK!

I had some from previous and not sure if I have received any new ones. I do know that old ones have since split open at points (small tears) because of the pressure on my belly. But like others mine fade over time.

I have all the same ones from before. They are not bad though. 3-4 on each upper thigh that I got in labor with DD1 and 2-3 on each side of my belly near my hip bones. My boobs on the other hand have plenty.... nursing 4 babies when you are usually a A-AA can do that to ya!!
