Stretch marks after 2nd+ baby?

I'm 30 weeks with #3 and I discovered a ton of thin new stretch marks all over my upper belly (from my belly button and up). I'm not even carrying high at all! My first two kids left me with stretch marks around my hips (I have some that are a full inch wide over my hip bones!) and on the sides of the lower part of my belly.. but now up top?! Really? 

If you've had two or more kids, did you continue getting stretch marks each time? At this rate, if we have a fourth baby, I might end up with them on my face!

I had horrible stretchmarks with my 1st. I hoped that this time I wouldn't get anymore, but at 35 weeks I've got new ones, lower than the first set. Stretchmarks are a mysterious pain in the belly for me.

I didn't have any room for more after my first, my belly is awful.

Nope I didn't get more. They start a few inches above my bellybutton and go down. The ones on the bottom are thin and mostly horizontal. I have some on my hips too 3-4 inches long.

Didn't get any until 9 months with my 1st.  My 2nd stretched my skin so bad.  Now it seems I'm recycling most of them lol

I'm on baby #2 and with my DD I only got these tiny tiny white ones right around my belly button. This baby on the other hand has given me bright purple ones all over my lower tummy like he is trying to claw his way out.

I got all of my stretchmarks after 36w with my first.. My whole belly was covered.. They go from my ribs to my hips. I never got more with my second or third.
