I got stretch marks around 37/38 weeks with my first. It was not second that I got them the most. My third gave me a few but not much at all. Your weight at the beginning has nothing to do with stretch marks. Just depends on some genetics, how you body will get them and where and can als be how fast you grow, size of belly can at times. There is so many factors that go into it.

My third I got the biggest but my second I carried her up much higher then my first and I got bigger fast with her.

how much weight you put on doesn't always correlate with if you will get stretch marks or not. I was 17 when I got pregnant with my first, 18 when I had him. I am 5'4 and was 123lbs pre pregnancy. I gained a total of 21 lbs and didn't get any stretch marks. This time, i'm 22 and was 125 pre pregnancy. I'm 37 weeks pregnant and am just starting to get some small stretch marks next to my belly button. I've gained 28lbs total so far.

Left is pre-pregnancy, right is post partum. I gained like 50lbs. I have lost it all, and more! I have stretch marks but they are fading.

Btw, that's my insulin pump if you're wondering. I'm a type 1 diabetic.

I'm 5'2'' and was 110lbs when I got pregnant with my first. I gained 60lbs. I didn't get stretch marks until 32 weeks. They didn't get bad until 37 weeks. By the time 40 weeks came, I was covered in them.
