When did you develop stretch marks, if any?

I'm just wondering because, I haven't gotten any YET. I'm 31 weeks right now, first pregnancy.
I'm expecting to have some, because my mom and sister both got them, and I have some very light stretch marks on my hips from puberty and such.

So I was wondering when you guys (ladies, rather) started getting stretch marks?? When should I expect to see them?

  • I got mine at eight months they went really low. It can be genetic so you may get lucky!

  • I never got any with my first pregnancy. My mom never got any, but my sisters all did. I guess I lucked out. Don't have any yet with this pregnancy either.

  • Foe me it was weird because they showed up after I gave birth! Like the next day after having my son I noticed a bunch of them. I guees when they were stretched out they weren't noticable.

  • I got them very early on and ALL FRIGGIN OVER. They are hereditary but maybe you missed that gene? I started to get them as soon as I started to show. My son ended up being 9lbs 6oz so you can imagine how lovely my stomach looks :-)
