  • I have them on each side of my stomach as well. Happy to say that with this pregnancy (my second) I haven't added any extra ones; I seem to just be stretching in the exact same area, so my marks have darkened a bit again. They will get better though. Mine were almost completely faded and you could only see them in certain lighting before I got pregnant again this time. Oh, and I didn't use any miracle cream or anything either, lol, they just lightened and faded over time.

  • Well my belly was already stretchmarked out from my last pregnancy but this time I got them on my BACK!!! How the heck do you get stretch marks on your back??

    I'm really prone to them though, I have them everywhere and most of them have faded over the years but man the new ones are like giant purple worms. *bleh*

  • I though I was in the clear because I didn't have any at 35 weeks, by the end of my pregnancy I looked like something clawed the front of my belly up, got them inside my thighs and on my butt too. They have faded, but now they just look even worse I think.

  • A chemical peel can get rid of them? Hmmm.... something to save for!

  • I hate mine!!! It's helped that I have lost all the baby weight but they are still there, grrrrr... Hubby says not to hide my tummy from him and that he loves all of me, stretch marks and all so I guess thats all that matters....
