Though I have been piling and creaming my belly on a nightly basis I noticed last night I have stretch marks on either side like an accordion! This is not my first baby but I definitely got more stretch marks this time around. Oh well.

Same here!! I'm getting way more than last time. I'm so bummed. My doctor laughed when I told her about my cremes and whatnot. She said it's totally genetic and there's absolutely nothing you can do. Kinda made me feel better...

Haha right now above my post there's an advertisement for stretch mark removal. Hehe.

Even if they don't work it makes me feel like I am doing something in the battle. I will bathe in bio-oil once this is all over!

Last time I didn't get any until 36 weeks and I foolishly thought I was going to make it through the whole pregnancy without any. This time they became visible pretty early on and I am not sure if I am getting new ones or if the old ones are just showing up more and more over time. Mine did go all the way away after awhile because I was pretty surprised to see them again.

I got them last time, for sure. No new ones this time yet but I'm not nearly as big this time around. And I believe that no amount of cream will keep them away from me...I'm just one of those people destined to get them. :/

So far Im doing ok, but my first ones didn't show up until 38 weeks with DD. Im hoping for no new ones (yeah right) and that maybe my old ones will be enough, lol. Did Bio-oil seems to work? I have been bathing in coconut oil to help keep my skin hydrated.

I never got a single stretch mark with either of my two other kids. Not.a.one. I wasn't so lucky this time ; )

My body looks like a road map! Stomach, boobs, upper thighs, even on my face!! Almost all of them are from my 1st one, but they do at least fade over time. I couldn't even begin to tell if any of them are "new". I don't worry about them, though. My clothing all hides them (except the face ones, and that's what make-up is for).

I have stretch marks literally from my boobs to my calves! They all came with pregnancy #1. I only added 1 new mark with my 2nd and 2 new with my 3rd. So far there aren't any new ones. But then again I didn't notice the additional marks until after delivering 2&3.

I have exploded in new stretch marks in the last couple days! With my first DS I didn't get a single mark until 37 weeks (he was born at 38 weeks) and then they were just everywhere. His were all vertical. This time it appears baby Widget was nice enough to give me a bunch of horizontal ones UGH. At least I can tell which marks come from which baby For me they are all on my stomach and then my boobs too.

I got a bunch on my hips, butt & boobs with DS1, with DS2 they just showed up more but didn't seem to be more of them, just more prominent.
With this pregnancy so far I have only gotten one tiny mark right where my belly button piercing was (way before DS1). And I am way bigger this time than I was with either of my last pregnancies. My mom got them horribly on her stomach with me & my brother but my grandma didn't get any at all. So maybe I will escape this last pregnancy without too many more than I already have.

I don't have any. I'm convinced that my skin has been slowly stretching for years because of weight gain/loss and that is why I have been lucky. I gain and lose weight all the time so I feel like my body is used to it and is already stretched out. But I delivered DS at 37 weeks so maybe if I carry this baby longer I won't escape again?
