Stretch Marks...Did You Get Them?

I don't have any on my tummy and only on the underside of my boobs and I'm 8 months, but last night, I noticed tiny little red ones on my upper thighs! I've been applying tummy lotion and boob lotion this whole time...but I neglected my hips and now I've got them. My grandma said....COVER YOUR BODY IN LOTION...I should've listened. Anyone else want to share their stretch mark story?

  • I got stretch marks on my boobs when I was about 13 years old! I used cocoa butter on my belly and thighs with all 3 of my pregnancies. I got a few stretch marks on my inner thighs with my first, then a couple tiny ones really low on my belly the last month with my second. I thought I was going to be fairly lucky, but it all ended about 8 months into my last pregnancy. Now my thighs are covered in big nasty ones, and my belly has about 10, but they aren't as bad as some I've seen. My biggest problem is that it's 3 years later and they still itch all the time!!!

  • i got them and i used lotion...stretch marks are genetic....if your mom has them more than likely youll get them

  • I have 2 stretch marks on my tummy but they are where the holes are for my belly button ring. I had them on my boobs HORRIBLY at the beginning but either they have gone away a little or I have just gotten used to them because they don't look as bad now. (I am 38 weeks pregnant) and yes I do have some on my upper thighs as well. My mom said its from my hips opening up probably. And actually stretch marks are genetic so if your mom did/didn't get them...that will be a good indicator if you will or not!
