I am getting strech marks already all over my tummy! I've been using shea butter everyday... My skin is going to be a hot mess. Sad part is this is my first baby :C I've been losing weight because of all the vomiting and not eating because Im not hungry. While i dont have a baby bump yet it is definitly pushing my tummy fat out making me look fatter and giving me strech marks. :C Ill show you ladies a picture when I get the chance its pretty bad for only being 7 weeks...

I'm starting to notice them on my boobs

I've been using lotion every day but its not helping.


I think some women are just prone to them. Oh well. I always liked this photo about stretch marks...

It's all about genetics. My mom had them and I've had them with both kids. Haven't had any new ones yet. But I love my marks it shows what I have gone through.

Lucky ladies. In the end I know its worth it to hold my little one in my arms. I just havent been feeling very attractive lately with all the vomiting, sweatpants, bloating and now icing on the cake stretch marks.

Oh I feel you. That's exactly how mine started last time. Maybe not this early, but that's what they looked like. Thankfully, and maybe you will be lucky too, they didn't stay red. They certainly aren't cute, but they aren't red. You will have a new found respect for your body after this is all said and done with.

Sadly it is more genetic then anything. The lotion will help the itching but if you are going to get them your just going to get them. I look like an oak tree that has been cut down...think RINGS! But it's okay b/c it just shows what my body has done to give life to my kids.

Sorry you are feeling down. Body changes are hard. The stretch marks might be red now but they will fade and become light and silvery as your body settles into normal after the baby.

I have a million you can't really see because they are very old. Being 17/18 years old with my first I was upset that I "ruined" my body but I matured and was able to look at my stretch marks as symbols of everything I over came and what grew inside me.
