2nd pregnancy stretch marks

If you had stretch marks with your first baby. With your second did your previous stretch marks just get dark again or did you also get new ones? Mine are just getting darker again. Since I'm 36 weeks and almost done I don't think I'll get more. I hope not anyway!

  • No, mine didn't. But I got a few new ones. I had them about 2 inches above my belly button and got two more inches above those the second time. The third time, no new stretchmarks.

  • I didn't get too many stretch marks. Don't forget to put lotion on your back. You can get them there, too.

  • That's always seen when a woman get pregnant, but that is temporary. for the meantime if you are anxious with that, you can seek the over the counter medication.

  • I got more each time.. =( but they tend to fade to a lighter color pretty fast for me after so I guess its okay.

  • I got horrible stretch marks when I was pregnant with my son. Thankfully they faded A LOT. Now, I am 33 weeks pregnant, and I haven't gotten much more stretch marks (though, I have gotten some) and they haven't gotten darker.
