At what point in pregnancy did you start to notice stretch marks?

Today after taking a shower and putting on some cocoa butter cream I noticed 3 stretch marks (I'm 30 weeks). When did you start noticing/getting stretch marks? Oh and did your belly button already pop out completely? If so, how many weeks along are you?

  • My stretch marks didn't appear until after I delivered, and I only got a couple on each of my sides. Minor in the world of stretch marks, I suppose. My belly button never popped out all the way, but MOST of the way, and it wasn't until only a couple of weeks before my due date.

  • I did not get stretch marks for my first two pregnancies. I was about 32 weeks with twins when I noticed my stretch marks on my third pregnancy, But I could not see under my belly, I just happened to look in a mirror after a shower and my whole under belly was stretch marked half way around my body.

  • Lotion doesn't prevent stretch marks... you are genetically predetermined to get them or not... Lotion only moisturizes. I got a few on my boobs when I was pregnant, and a couple on my hips after I had my baby.

  • I didnt get stretch marks until the last month or so. I was running around going "HAHA CHECK THIS OUT!!" and then BAM. they came on IN FORCE. I have them on my belly, my hips, my thighs, my butt, my boobs, MY CALVES!!! My bellybutton never popped out but it got flat. Thank god I took my belly ring out!!! I also gained 70 lbs preggo, but lost it all too.

  • I never got any stretch marks. My belly button never really popped out either, but I think it's because I have an abnormally deep belly button...lol
