  • I got them pretty severely with my first pregnancy. I wear them with pride :) They are tribute to the miraculous thing my body did, the marks I EARNED becoming a mother for the first time. I wouldn't trade them. At first they bothered me a little, because they were ANGRY and RED, but they have faded to a shimmery white now and I think they're beautiful. I wonder if this little one will add his/her mark on mamma's belly too :)

  • Well I got strech marks all over my belly with my first pregnancy. They are very severe but  I have to live with them their is nothing I could do.. Now with my second pregnancy I wonder is they are going to get worse which I don't think their is no space in my belly were more strech marks could fit!

  • I got 3 across my lower belly, get ready for this, my last week of pregnancy they came. Sucks but they are small and fading already. I was a week late with my due date too so if I had him one week earlier I would of had none lol.

  • To mommyofjayden, I can't say if you will get more stretch marks with your second baby, but I can say that I had 4 babies and only got stretch marks with the first, but they where all over my body.

  • I never had them before pregnancy but I got them after. They themselves don't really bother me all that much, they don't bother dh and I wasn't really one to wear bikinis before I got pregnant, so I just wear tankinis now and it works for me. But, I did have some negative feellings surrounding them because of my mother. She never got stretch marks and she always says it was because she rubbed vaseline on her body while she was pregnant. Well, I did that and cocoa butter and lotion and everyone saw me applying it all the time and I was even teased about how much I used it. When I got the stretch marks, my mom made comments about how horrible they looked and gave "I told you so" comments about the vaseline. I used it! But apparently she didn't think I did so well enough or often enough. So anyway, I had to get over that but I am okay with them on the whole.

  • The last trimester with DS I got 3 little ones on each side of my stomach, they were doing great fading away when I got pregnant again. I'm only 4 months and am already getting a few, but I also started showing a lot sooner and faster than I did with DS. Hopefully these will fade as well :)
