Only get them on my legs but I'm not sure if its stretch marks of spider veins. Been lucky past pregnancies to avoid getting them on my tummy.

I got horrible stretch marks in my last pregnancy. I had none until 35 weeks then they just exploded everywhere. After studying skin in school, I can absolutely tell you there's nothing you can do to prevent them. And you also can't make them disappear completely. Mine were ugly red/purple after my son but they faded to white silver which is what they are now. Stretch marks are rips and tears in the dermal layer of your skin that's healed over with collagen and stuff. Nothing's preventing that or making them go away. It's all dependent on how your body stretches. If it needs room for baby, it will provide that room somehow. I'm hoping to not get any new ones this time, hopefully my belly stretched enough last time. But honestly Idk if it'd make a difference at this point. My belly was covered.

I should add I lathered my belly up every day last pregnancy. This one, I've used bio oil to help keep them white hopefully.

I have a few on the underside of my belly that are silvery from DS. I think I have a silvery one starting in my belly button this time. I was slathering lotion and noticed it. I have tons on my boobs.

No new ones

Mine were never red/purple they started out light colored so it's possible.

The only things I've felt so far is red/tender belly button (feel kind of like it wants to rip apart)

I don't have any new ones, but with Teegan I didn't get them until the very end. I think my body was finally just like, "*** this.".

They're not terribly bad though. Once they faded you can barely see them and I still felt comfortable wearing a two piece then.

I did get them on my boobs, thighs and stomach though. I'm guessing because I'm a smaller person normally and pregnancy seems to make me explode. apparently boobs don't like going from a small "B" cup to a "DD"?

ETA: Seriously JM?! I can't even say "e*f*f"?! C'mon!
