Did you get stretch marks?

I was lucky I didn't, but my tummy is kind of wrinkly.

Yes! Only on my stomach though. I already had some on my legs that just got worse but not added onto. None on my boobs or my butt or anywhere else.

Yes, on my belly, butt and boobs lol. They really are not that bad, they don't bother me much. What bothers me is how stretched out and saggy the skin on my belly is now..

Yup. Tons. For me, it's genetic. My mom, grandma, sister, aunt, etc, any female in my family to have kids, got stretch marks.

Butt, boobs, stomach, thighs. I used to have some on my arms but those went away.

For anyone looking to reduce appearance, Bio Oil. I started using that and after even a few days I could see a huge difference. You can find it in the cosmetics department at Walgreen's. It's about $15 for a 2 ounce bottle but a little goes a long way.

YES! :'-( I have the worst looking stretch marks ever! I call them my battle scars! Thankfully they have faded a little more since having my 2nd dd and I didn't get anymore w/ her either. They are just so gross looking tho.

I had them before pregnancy, I am just happy that pregnancy did not make them worse!

I got 5!  I thought it was SO weird that I only got fine.  They're long, about 3 inches, but only five.  And on the top of my stomach.  They're not in a "typical" stretch mark area.  I did however then get several, probably 6-8 right along the top of my c-section scar.  I actually never noticed them  and they didn't show until my pregnancy pigment came back this pregnancy, but I'm pretty sure that they were caused BY the c-section itself.

Same, but not too bad on the boobs and a little on my legs that are by now faded.
