Thought I might avoid them this time since my body has "been there, done that" with the weight gain.. I was wrong! Got about 3 real lovely ones that are going up my back! GRRR...Belly is still free and clear so I guess that's something to be happy about but with 10 weeks left to go I am not thrilled!

I also need to add that the skin under my boobs feels like something from the pits of hell.. I mean cat scratch on top of a sunburn pain and it's constant!!! Is July here yet??

I still have not gotten any new ones yet. IDK if its hereditary or because I have been slathering myself in Cocoa Butter Gel Oil for weeks like you would slather butter on a turkey. LOL. I know my mom got them when she was preggo with my brother. But I don't know if she had them with me.

I also noticed that some women have their belly buttons pop out by now...mine is still an "innie" and as of this Saturday 32weeks = 8 months. So it's possible I may avoid the stretch marks and the outie belly button altogether.

Boo! No stretch marks here... yet... I feel like my stomach is already pushed to the max though. I've been an outtie for probably 6 weeks now and I'm not sure how much more room there is for baby to start putting on weight. We shall see.

I don't know if I have any new ones yet, but to be honest I probably wouldn't even be able to tell where the old ones stopped and the new ones started. The ones I already have though are becoming more noticeable as they are starting to stretch out again, so that's unpleasant.

Ugh! At least so far you only have them on your back!

I haven't gotten a single one yet *knock on wood* but I still have almost 9 weeks until my DD. My mom didn't get any during her pregnancies, and I've been slathering myself in cocoa butter every single night.

I'm pretty sure i maxed out my Stretch mark quota like 13 years ago cause the last 3 pregnancies have resulted in no more.

I think I have a couple lines under my belly button, but they are so faint its hard to tell. Those will probably retract into my belly button again after baby but for the last couple of weeks I have been trying to remember to use petroleum jelly on my stomach since it seems to stick so well. Belly button is still an 'innie' but looking pretty odd by now. I had it pierced when I was 18/19 so that just looks funny now. Its pretty shallow but I'll be shocked if it pops. I still feel like I have some skin left to spare but it seems to be under my belly where I am stretching most up top.
Fingers crossed it doesn't get much worse!!!

I have a pierced belly button as well (had it done when I was a teenager and haven't worn anything in it for years). It has stretched so much... it's a big distance from the hole to my belly button now!

Eh just a few new ones that are small, but really low. I carry so low though I might be missing some that I can't see.
