  • I can completely understand how you feel. I was raped and got pregnant, I was 19 years old. I didn't get stretch marks (thank god) My son is the best thing that ever happened to me but now I'm 26 and still single and I'm happy to say I have my body back...only now I have a booty and boobs! If you are going to get stretch marks its going to happen. You can try lotions or what not but its genetics. My mother never got stretch marks and I was lucky as well. Good luck momma to be get some cocoa butter and love that baby!

  • Wow, you are going to be a mom. Don't worry so much about your "hot bod". And genetics will decide if you do or do not get stretch marks.

  • I never got stretch marks. But I never got my hot bod back either. Somehow, it just doesn't matter anymore.

  • I didn't have any stretch marks until 35 weeks and then I got a TON. Don't expect your old body back....you will be lucky if you bounce back but most women don't. It really doesnt bother me at all. My Husband finds me sexy still and so do I.

  • Not everyone ends up with bad stretch marks. My mom had 3 kids....no stretch marks. The baby does grow the most in the last few weeks, but if you don't have any yet, you may not get any!!

    Good luck, and wishing you an easy and healthy delivery....with no stretch marks.

  • i've had 3 kids and though i did get some while pregnant they are gone now and my youngest is 9 months. i think the reason is i only got white ones, the deep red ones are alot harder to get rid of. i used palmer's cocoa butter everytime i got out of the shower and sometimes in the evening, walked everyday and ate healthy (most of the time teehee =) ) and then after my children were born i continued walking and when i felt up to it i would run. now im at a decent weight, not as skinny as i once was but im happy in my own skin and i just continue to eat right and exercise *when i can, with 3 kids under 5 that's hard to do!* and live my life. good luck on taking your hot bod back =)

  • If that's the way you feel about it all...maybe you should look into adoption for that poor baby.

  • I started getting them at 36 weeks, and then my stomach looked like a stretch mark jail cell. Lotions and stuff won't prevent them, it's a genetic thing.
