  • all women are different. i got them on my inner thighs AFTER giving birth. i got rid of them though. be happy you don't have them yet. they're gross.

  • I had none till a week before the due date and honestly its hard to believe that no one gets them just saying I have never met a person in my life who didnt. We are all small girls too

  • Mine didn't show until after I had my DD. my chest exploded when my milk came in and some time in the last few months when I couldn't see past my tummy the front of my thighs got them and my butt..

  • Every person is different. Some people get them early on, others in the 9th month, and others after birth. I started getting them around 7 months with my first pregnancy.

  • My stretch marks came right at the end the last 3 weeks when the baby dropped. but it depends on genetics and if you are already prone to getting them.

  • I started getting them on my breasts and below the hair line very early in my 1st trimester, Then nothing until after I delivered.

  • I don't remember seeing any until after I started loosing the baby weight. My first I only had a few on my hips, easier to hide, but my second I got so big i got them on my legs too. They are fading and I see less and less of them every year. Getting a nice tan helps. lol.
