  • With my first pg i had stretch marks from about 19 wks on. I'm a bigger girl, but always had a flat stomach- so as soon as it began to stretch, along came the stretch marks.But i never got them on my butt. This time around I'm 21 wks and still no stretch marks! I have a friend who is 20 wks pg and she said she already has them from her belly button to her crotch, and even on her lower back and butt. Every one's different i guess.

  • I had one my whole pregnancy. After I had him 5 weeks ago I've noticed a few more showing up. I think it's from the extra weight hanging there lol

  • I didn't get any until after my daughter was born. I was overweight before I got pregnant though so I don't know if that had anything to do with it.
