Stretch marks

did you get stretch marks your first pregnancy? how about your second?

I'm curious because I went through my entire first pregnancy and didn't get any stretch marks on my belly or anywhere really except one on my butt and a tiny on my breast. But I'm wondering if I will be that lucky during my second pregnancy

  • My stretch marks are terrible! The women in my family are genetically predisposed to them though. It sounds like you may be one of the lucky ones who isn.t Just use bio oil or Burt's bees mama bee belly balm and you should be good to go.
