I went my whole pregnancy with what I thought was NO stretch marks! I was quite emotional watching my body gain weight and transform during pregnancy but held some positive hope with the non-appearance of stretch marks.
BUT now...2 1/2 weeks after my baby was born - boom, stretch marks across my mid-section. I am so upset. Perhaps if I had months to get use to them it would be easier but I thought I was in the clear.
I haven't found much about this happening online except for
1. they could appear during the pregnancy weight loss...I guess as the weight comes off the skin still initially hangs causing the skin to stretch?
2. I could have had them during pregnancy but bc the skin was stretched could have not seen them until the pressure is off the skin?
Anyone else experience this?
