I am a FTM and I am 26w3d and my first little red stretch mark showed up tonight. It was kind of exciting and sad at the same time! It made me feel good that baby is growing and all the pain/discomfort I was feeling today was justified, but sad that my belly could soon be covered in red marks. For the record I had lost weight and kept it off for three years before getting pregnant, so I had plenty of previously stretched skin to grow into, but I guess baby still needs more room. Any other FTM's noticing these changes or STM's remembering their first stretch marks? DH asked if we should take a picture, I said no but it does feel like a badge of honor so I am going to wear my new little stretch mark proudly.
