This baby I have seen less stretch marks than I have noticed with my other pregnancies.  Although, since I said this, I will wake up tommorow morning with them everywhere!

I got them with my first son at the end of my pregnancy and with this one I haven't gotten them that bad yet, but I am already bigger than I was with my first son

With my second I thought I didn't get any new ones until she was born and my tummy flattened out and I saw that they were all on the bottom of my belly where I could see them while pregnant

I used the lotion twice a day with my first and I woke up one morning when I was 8 months pregnant and it seems like they were all over. I cried about it but I tried not to obsess about it. I was tiny before I got pregnant and I got down to a size 5 after I had her. I was single and (kind of open about this) but the guys I dated didn't care. I am married now and my husband doesn't care at all. I can't say not to care because he doesn't but try not to worry about it. If they aren't bad you won't have to worry. Mine weren't bad but they were very noticable and I was wearing a bikini when I got tiny again. (I am very insecure about my body so I won't wear something I shouldn't lol) They turned white. So if yours are white then they shouldn't be bad. after you have him. Just try not to get too upset about it because it shouldn't matter.

 I just found some on my BUTT! None on my tummy yet but they will prob come. I feel huge already, although I have only gained a pound, I can't see my toes anymore! I already have them on my hips from gaining and losing weight. I hope they don't get too bad. Just keep rubbing lotion on your belly, it should help.
