Mine are worse, I have had mine since I was 15, They got so bad that they split open and I had to put bandages on them. No creams or oils did anything to prevent them and I was so scared of them I put it on religously and it did not make a bit of difference, so now I wear them all the time pregnant or not its terrible I forgot what I look like without them :*(

i'm pregnant with my 3rd and I have way more! my 1st pregnancy i got them all over my stomach and some on the sides and my 2nd pregnancy i got them lower (crotch area, inner thighs). I'm African American so mines were never red. They start out darker and now almost 7yrs later much lighter (like light streaks). They suck but i've learned to live with them...i hate my jelly belly more than the stretch marks...

Here's mine, the red stretch marks on the top are the stretching from this pregnancy of my stretchmarks from my 1st pregnancy. I took the pic with a webcam so its crappy.
