  • It is if the skin stretches more. Stretch marks are from the skin stretching faster then it can grow. Which is generally what happens when you get pregnant. So if your body goes back to any sort of prepregnancy shape even with the extra lbs. Then you will gain more stretch marks as the body stretches back out.

  • It all comes down to genetics. if you got them with the first but with the second you don't gain as much weight, it all comes down to how much elasticity your skin has.

  • I gained new stretch marks with each pregnancy even though I didn't gain nearly as much weight during my 2nd or 3rd.

  • the typical american diet is very low in good fats. if you eat your fish, avocados, nuts and seeds, you are giving your skin what it needs to be flexible. if you are pregnant now, it is most likely to late to prevent stretch marks now, but it is never too late to eat better!load up on the good fat! it is good for your skin, hair, brain, and more!

  • I guess either is possible. I got loads of stretch marks with my first pregnancy, and while I still have those scars, I haven't seen any new ones pop up with this pregnancy (and I'm my 3rd trimester).
