Stretch marks post pardom?????

WTF? has anyone been in the clear for stretch marks until later? I just noticed three little ones on my belly. I thought I was in the clear.

Re: Stretch marks post pardom?????

  • Two days ago I noticed some on my belly that weren't there my entire pregnancy.  Boo.

  • I didn't have any stretch marks when I was pregnant and thought I was in the clear....unfortunately once my son was born, I noticed a few purple lines on my stomach below my belly button.  I've been putting lotion on them every night and they seem to be getting a little lighter, but they are still visible.  Sad
  • Be glad it's only a few...mine looks like a battle field...I have stretch marks all over my stomach, my hip bones, and on the top of my vag...some are a half inch thick.  I never had a problem with stretch marks before I got pregnant (even being a bigger curvy girl) but there's no way my stomach will ever be at all smooth again.  it looks like this picture (since i don't have a picture of mine):

  • Yep. I got all my stretch marks on my stomach after the baby was born. My stomach and thighs itched like crazy and 2 weeks later big ugly marks.

    Me too! And boy am I glad to hear of someone else with the same crazy stretchmarks.  All my friends/family I've talked to look at me like I'm crazy that I have that many!

  • I'm in the same boat. I didn't show any signs during pregnancy, but afterwards I have these big ugly purple ones below my belly button to go along with my big ugly c-section scar and c-section pouch :( My friends say that's what happens when you deliver a toddler (my DD weighed 9 lbs 5 oz and was 23 inches long).

    Yep.  I had a few during pregnancy too.  I am ok with never showing my stomach again.  :)

  • I got them after...but not even on my stomach. They are on my butt. I never had any with DS.

    I call them my battle scars...I earned it!  After 39.5 weeks of pregnancy, 13.5 hours of labor, 2 epidurals, 1 spinal block, a c-section, and one 8 lb 9 oz baby girl later I think I earned every last one of them LOL.

  • is "pardom" slang for something? I can't find a definition.

  • Same with me, but theres only three and they're barely noticeable so I can't whine. Since I've never gotten stretch marks from gaining weight, only losing it quickly, I'm not surprised. I mean your stomach goes down a lot faster than it got big (although not fast enough for me :p )

    This is exactly me, too. I didn't get then during pregnancy, but I figured they were coming for me after...

    And sourgrapes, I think she meant "partum"

     I've got them from hip to hip right under my belly button. They started to pop up a couple weeks before I delivered. Up until' then, I had 2 stretch marks.

  • The person who commented: get over it can go to hell!  Stretch marks can emotionally affect a person post partom & beyond. Don't be a *** & ruin someone's ability to voice their opinion on a social support group like this!
