  • In my last month. I was fine up until the very end of the pregnancy and then they started showing up everywhere.

  • on my belly, around my belly doc says its genetics and now way of preventing them. but hey trying the creams can't hurt, i tried with my first pregnancy and I got them...but they didn't get worse with any of my subsequent pregnancies and now am on #3

  • With my first, I got just a few early on. I thought I was doing well. In the last 2 months or so, my stomach become COVERED in them. There is not room for anymore. The closer I got to my due date, the worse they got. I also gained a lot of weight and carried him "out" apparently (so my doc's said). I also used creams throughout the whole pregnancy.

    I'm 30 weeks pregnant today with my second and haven't gotten any new ones. The old ones are starting to turn a little bit pink again, though.

  • It started when I was 7 months on the side of my belly.
