stretch marks?

I'm currently 8 months and haven't gotten stretch marks yet. Do they usually come during the pregnancy, or do they start appearing after the baby is born, when your stomach goes back to normal?

  • I thought I didn't have any stretchmarks either...then after I had the baby I realized there were some I couldn't see because of my big belly (moslty on my thighs and hips) good luck
