Re: Clicky poll: stretch marks

  • Not yet, but I am sure they are coming.

  • mine is yes and no at the same time.  I had stretch marks from when I got really fat really quick at 20 (depression, abusive relationship, bad eating).  When I moved back home 2 years ago, I lost alot of the weight (about 35lbs) and they were just a little silvery.  Now I know that I have at least 2 new ones because they hurt when they happened, but the rest were existing.

  • I don't have new ones yet or anything b/c the belly is not the stretched out.  But I can definitely see the ones I got from DS1 poking their little selves out already.

  • I have some horiffic ones I got when I was 20 and gained a ton of weight fast. For now nothing new though it comes with the territory. When I'm done with babies I'm going to save for a tummy tuck and get it all worked out

  • I looked like I was clawed by a wild animal when I was pregnant with DS. I got them BAD, and I mean BAD. We're talking dark purple. They faded, but you can still see them. I'm not sure I could possibly get any new ones since there were so many before, but who knows. I think it would be too hard for me to tell if they were "new" for this pregnancy or leftover from before. I suppose the old ones could darken up again.

    This. I'm a weirdo; I like them. Yet another strange side effect of infertility. They're like battle scars. I have earned these things. /fistpump

  • I actually have some small stretch marks on my lower back from, no joke, going through puberty and suddenly growing a butt.  I think that I would be way less self-conscious about pregnancy stretch marks than about those.

  • I voted "no" because I don't have any new ones from this PG but I did have a few stretch marks before I got PG around my groin area (where hip meets thigh) from gymnastics/cheerleading. I'm sure it's just a matter of time before I get some new ones Tongue Tied

    I have a few light stretch marks on my hips from when I went into college.  I went from 105-130s, then when I lost the weight I got them.  When pregnant with DD, no new stretch marks showed up and I went to term and had lots of swelling.  This pregnancy I haven't seen any so far and hoping it stays that way.

  • I feel like there should be a "I have so many from a previous pregnancy that I have no freakin idea if I have any new ones" option.  Cause that would be my vote.

    Currently going through our second deployment. Can't wait for Zoe to meet her daddy!

  • I had some in my back region from gaining too much weight too fast from before. Since becoming pregnant so far the only new stretch marks are on my poor boobs :/ and I hopping to stay that way.

  • I don't think I have any new ones yet, but some of my old ones from DS are starting to look more prominent.  I also had pretty terrible stretch marks with DS.  They're huge and were super dark, although they have faded over time.  I'm hoping that I don't get too many more!

    I started to see a some a few weeks ago. They aren't very big yet, and for some reason they look lighter to me now than they did when they first showed up. Perhaps it's just wishful thinking and they are still that dark but I'm just refusing to believe it.

  • No new ones from this pregnancy yet. I got a lot of them when I was pregnant with DD. It looks like I got clawed by a tiger or something, lol. I also had a lot on my legs/boobs from going through puberty. Based on my history, I am sure I will get more with this one. Oh well.

  • Not yet, but I have quite a few from puberty.

  • Mine are all on my legs, hips and butt, but they're there.  It's super annoying.  I didn't get them this early last time and these are new pink ones.

  • I just started getting a little bit of stretch marks on my sides.  I'm not surprised though b/c I already had stretch marks on my boobs, hips, and inner thighs just from puberty.  Hopefully they don't get too bad!

  • I've had stretch marks since week 14. I've only gained 12 lbs so far, and I'm scared of what's to come when I gain more weight. I had stretch marks from puberty, but they're non existent, mainly on my boobs and sides. Ugh, it's safe to say that my beach days will not be spent in a bikini :(

  • No new ones yet but I have a few on my hips from teenage years that are stretching so they are more noticeable although they are still white/skin tone in color. I'm sure they are coming sooner or later!:(

  • Yes but I already had some on my belly.

  • I voted no, but I already had my fair share of stretch marks from puberty, and then weight fluctuations over several years.  Unless I get dark purple ones, I'm not sure if I'll be able to tell if they're new!

  • None for me.  It's not common in my family so I'm hoping that I'll take after my mom and grandmother and not get any at all.

    This is the same for me! Women in my family never got them and I never got any during puberty/weight gain spurts/etc prior to preganancy. This is my 1st so we will have to wait and see what is to come but I am happy that I don't have any yet(*knock on wood*) :)

    I don't... YET, but like a PP said, I'm sure they're coming.

    I use to have a stick thin shape, and then my sophomore year I sprouted hips and boobs overnight, and got stretch marks in both places. Therefore, I think belly stretch marks are inevitable for me.

    Fingers crossed that they don't appear though, lol.

  • Like many others, I had a few already from rapid weight gain (thanks, unemployment depression a few years ago!)  But, I've noticed a few that are higher up than the ones I had before.  Those are new.  I like them.  They're like roads on a map.  No color yet, just kind of silvery, but when I touch them I can feel the indention.  I think my husband thinks they are cool too.  He was tracing one of them last night when he had his hand on my belly to try and feel kicks.
