I found them!

My stretch marks. 

I was making with peace with the idea that I would likely end up with them in earlier months, but I have been thrilled that at 37 1/2 weeks, with my weight gain leveled off, I still had none!  I thought i might be getting off easy on this one. 

NOPE!

I found them last night.  They're on the bottom of my belly - the part I can't see because I'm so giant!  Ha.  I was in a weird side position and I caught a glimpse and gasped.  : (  Oh well...

HAHA my first I used the lotion and everything I could think of. But heck my stomach still has stretch marks all over it. Now with my second I got no more stretch marks and so far the same with this little boy.  But my stretch marks did go a lighter color so you could barely see them and if you tan they do not show us near as bad.  But my stomach is very flabby and I will be having surgery to correct this because I have split my stomach muscles apart.

Also my boobs are gone to skin with nipples.  I learned my lesson about not wearing a bra all the time.  ALWAYS wear a bra even when you sleep. lol

I have the most pale skin ... I don't and can't tan, haha.  I'm still hoping they'll fade : )  We'll see...  Good luck with your surgery!

I had stretch marks with my first so I kinda expected them with this one. So far they haven't gotten worse (knock on wood) but have at the top of my belly become a little bit darker.... So over all the pains, the stretch marks, random breakouts... I say its been pretty good...

I am almost 29 weeks with my third baby and still no stretch marks on my belly. *knocks on wood*.

I have stretch marks on my boobs and my upper thighs from my first two pregnancies which have faded quite a bit. My boobs have gotten HUGE with this baby though (I went from a 34C to a 36DD so far) so I am sure I'll have some new stretch marks there. :(
