So I'm just curious as to how many moms really don't let their stretch marks get to them. I never got any with my first pregnancy until around 34 weeks. I then "sprouted out" around my belly button and on my hips. Nothing extremely bad and yes they faded over time and I had to really work on my self-esteem to pretend they aren't even there. I do wear two-piece swimsuits, and I will continue to next year (if they don't get TOO bad after this pregnancy). Any other moms rock the two-piece with their marks?
