Did you get stretch marks from your first pregnancy? &..

If you've had more than one kid, did you get them with every pregnancy of yours?
My husband & I were talking about having another kid, we're not sure about it, we have 1 son now. But we've been talking and thinking about trying again, this time for a girl (hopefully, lol, ofcourse we'd love the child boy or girl)..
I got quite a few stretch marks from my son, mostly on my inner top thigh, and a few faint ones on my breasts. Im wondering about if we do decide to have another child, would these stretch marks become worse, or will I get a new batch lol.. Just wondering how it worked out for you ladies :)

  • With my son my body started to give way a little once he was over 8.5 pounds. I can't blame it.. it tried! I got a few mild ones on my lower stomach.. nothing you can notice much even in a bikini anymore, and a few on each love handle. I am 5'9" and I started my pregnancy at 128 and finished it at 158. People I know who got a lot of stretch marks did get worse ones with kids in the future.. but they all gained a lot of extra weight.

  • I only have one kid and I got a few at the very bottom of my stomach. Nobody will be seeing those except the mirror and my husband so they don't bother me. They're so low I didn't even notice they were there until weeks after my son was born lol. Lord knows my genetics are prone to stretch marks though so I'm surprised I didn't get more.

  • i gained exactly 24lbs with both of my boys.. Dameon was 8lbs 2.9oz i felt big.. i was all belly but in reality i wasnt huge, i was just pregnant. Ashton( my youngest son) was 9 n a half pounds and my belly was LARGE!! lmao no wonder it hurt to walk so bad in the last month!! haha if i knew that he was such a big baby maybe my boss wouldnt have been so uptight about me not being able to move fast *rolls eyes* people are just dumb....

  • After my first pregnancy I did not get anymore. I waited until about the 9th month to get them and I was so mad, well I guess I didn't decide but my body did.

  • i didn't have any until i had twins.
    honestly, stretch marks really should not be a factor in weather or not you have children...imo.
    to avoid them you could boost your body with good oils, start taking fish oil (carson's lemon flavored is good) and udo's oil is good. eat avocados too! do this before you get pregnant, and continue throughout the pregnancy.
