Is it possible to not see any stretch marks until after delivery?

I didn't have any with my other two and this time i don't SEE any but i have gotten a lot bigger than i ever did with them.... so since i have no experience with them I was just wondering if i may not see them until after

  • With my first she ruined me, lol! I didn't get any stretch marks except one right above my belly button until was 8 month pregnant. They go all the way up to my ribs. With my second I didn't see any NEW stretch marks until after giving birth. Now they go all the up to my ribs and all the way down to my pubic bone. Guess I will never wear a bikini again, lol. I carried my first very high and my second very low...yipee for me,lol!

  • i got stretch marks everywhere BUT my belly with #1, at about 39 weeks i started to get the white ones that arnt deep and are only on the very surface, and i went to 41w3d...and then after i had her, i noticed i got them down the back of my thighs, and i dont think they were there before..i have read that one of the ways of getting stretch marks is by losing weight too fast, like giving birth..
