  • I started getting stretch marks on my hips around the 34 week mark. The stretchies on my tummy didn't show up until a couple of days *AFTER* my daughter was born! They weren't too bad though and they've already faded considerably since April.

  • I got them around my hips at 34 weeks, and the ones on my tummy right before i delivered-- around week 37 ( I delivered at the end of the 37th week). The ones they don't tell you about are the ones you get on the inside of your thighs right by your vagina! I was horrified to see them when they put the mirror up so I could see my son crown. I have no idea when I started to get those-- I couldn't see anything below my belly button after the 30th week.

  • I didn't start getting any until about two weeks ago at 37 weeks. I haven't gotten them toooo bad.

  • I didn't get mine until around 30 weeks. I'm 39 weeks now and they are pretty bad. They are dark and long. They pretty much stop at my bellybutton. Didn't get a ton on the sides just mainly the lower belly. Someone told me "Bio-Oil" works great to get rid of stretch marks. I just started using it, so I will see. You can find it at Walgreens. It is expensive.
