White stretch marks?

I just noticed some very light white stretch marks all over my stomach. They look sort of like a lacy pattern, rather than big scratches. Will they get darker? They're pretty faint at the moment. I'm 34 weeks.

  • it depends...mine got darker when i was pregnant with my son but after I had him I breastfed and used cocoa butter every day since my second trimester and mine lightened up again and they are almost the same color as my skin...very faint.

  • Usually the lighter ones fade faster. Since you're so late in your pregnancy they may not get any darker because they won't be stretching much more. Use cocoa butter!!

  • it depends on how big you get but the bigger you get the more they come and darker.
