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

I haven't gotten any new ones, I just have them from DS, and I think those are getting a little darker from being stretched. I use lotion occasionally but when I used it daily with DS it didn't help, so whatever.

I don't think I have any new ones. I just have the ones from DS. I use cocoa butter lotion everyday to see if it will help.

I have noticed some on my hips already but so far none on my stomach (crossing my fingers). Some of the stretch marks were already there from before being pregnant but definitely have a few more. I feel like my whole body is stretched to the max already and I still have 13 weeks left... oh well. It will totally be worth it once our little guy is here

I noticed 3 new ones last week. Only had the super pale ones from Chase prior to that.. These new ones are small but they're really red! 3 more months to go, I think I'm going to be covered

*Thank you to
*Kiliki* for my beautiful signature!*

There is no escaping them for me. I have a ton now, but i've been lotioning just to help, even though it won't keep them away.

Thank you, Jaidynsmum, for the amazing siggy

No new ones, but her positioning is totally different then Orion's was. He was low my *entire* pregnancy so all of my stretch marks are low around my hips and under my belly button, she likes to hand out much higher and even though it doesn't look like it to me in pictures, she's always up in my ribs and my skin there seems like its likely to start giving soon. I get itchy but don't itch and just try to stay hydrated. The very tops of my belly stretch marks are getting pink in color again so I'm just waiting to wake up with a bunch of new ones.

No new ones, i stay lathered up first because I don't wanna get ashy lol even though and want my skin to be moisturized so that if they do come it won't berth bad. The ones I ave from DD have faded pretty well

Ive got some pale-ish ones.. all around my belly button it feels.. but Ive got an ugly scar from a laproscopic surgery that is flattening out now my belly button is pushed much further so I give up on a nice looking belly but I do use mama bee belly butter and I havent gotten itchy at all and it feels moisturized all day. I suppose it could be worse.

no new ones. I pretty much just got them with my first and then they started to fade. Now they are just faint marks, but they are starting to "spread out" and become more noticeable, but still faded.

This is my first pregnancy and I'm getting a few now that are deep red >_< I use this oil and lotion that someone gave me as a gift in a pregnancy pack twice a day and even use it on my breasts (I get really itchy!) but they're still showing up lol maybe it would be much worse without it? I don't know I know my mother and sister both got pretty bad stretch marks so I feel they're going to be horrible towards the end!
