Do you have them? Did you have them before the pregnancy from something other than pregnancy?

I got a lot this pregnancy. My stomach had fared well through my other two pregnancies, but Grayson changed that *sigh* luckily I am really fair skinned so when they turn white they aren't too noticeable. But like Melissa, I think my bikini days are over!

I do have them. I didn't get a ton on my stomach from DD and they faded afterwards. But I have noticed he has made a few worse and darker. I have had stretch marks on my boobs since highschool. Seriously I went from flat chested to a double d over the course of a single summer and back then I was a skinny thing so yep got em there. I also have them on my hips from the gymnastics and sports during highschool. I used to do a lot of leg workouts and used to have massively muscular thighs (I used to leg press about 375 pounds per leg) lol so yeah I got em there but they are real old and faint now as I stopped doing all that after my injury obviously.

I do also feel that women shouldn't be ashamed of our stretch marks no matter the reason we got them. Our skin is our own and it tells a story of our life. We shouldn't be so hard on ourselves or what we see in the mirror. I say rock out your stretch marks ladies! Especially if they come from making babies and giving the gift of life!! Love them and yourself!

I have a lot from my previous pregnancies, but from what I can tell *knock on wood* I do not have any/many new ones from this pregnancy.

I have some from gaining weight quickly when I was younger. Those I've had for a while. I can't tell if baby has made new ones or if they're just the old ones and I can see them a little more. I'm sure I have more in places I can't see. I never had a bikini body and probably never will, so that isn't an issue for me! Haha. I also am pretty pale, so once they fade they're not too noticeable.

I had them from Connor's pregnancy, I used bio-oil afterwards and it helped lighten and decrease them a LOT! I'll prob do the same thing this time as well.

I got one in my 39th week with DD. This time around, it seems to have decided to have a breeding fest. There are 3 more. They are all small and on the underside of my belly on the left. The old one was't visible when I wasn't pregnant. I hope they all follow with that. I am kind of depressed about them, to be honest...

I got a bunch with DD that all faded to white a couple of months after delivering. I haven't gotten any new ones *yet* but I wasn't pregnant this long with DD so i'm wondering if more will show up. A couple that I had before have gotten darker but it doesn't look as bad as it did with DD despite the fact that my stomach got much larger

I got quite a few with my first, but they all faded and you could hardly tell I have had them. With my second though, I retained a strange pocket of fluid at the very bottom of my belly and stretched the skin out so far that even when I weigh 120lbs you can tell I used to be a lot bigger. Like a little flap of skin. But, at least because I was already so stretched out from the second time I have absolutely no new stretchmarks this time I'm also a lot smaller this time around, it seems. I looked at belly pictures from when I was pregnant with Gabriel and I was HUGE! Not so huge this time around.

I had stretch marks on my hips and thighs from when I was a teenager. I got a few on my stomach below my belly button during this pregnancy, but nothing major.

I got a lot with DS and they faded a little over time, this time I my got new ones around my belly button. Organic coconut oil and bio oil have really help fade the ones I had. I definitely recommend using that.
