Question for second time mommies

Hi guys!  I'm pregnant with my second child and only in my 1st trimester.  With my first child she left quite a few stretch marks on me.  I'm wondering what effect our new baby is going to have on the stretch marks that have been left over from pregnancy number 1.  They have already faded quite a bit and are hardly noticeable.  Will they just turn pink again or will they stretch out even more? Thanks!

  • My stretch marks didnt seem to change much, and remained faded, but I did get some new ones in different areas...
  • I haven't gotten any new ones, but the old ones got their color back in the late 2nd tri. I'm assuming they'll fade again like they did after the first time.

  • I haven't gotten any new ones yet but the ones I did have are darker than they were before I got pregnant again.

  • Thanks!  I'm really nervous about my belly turning into one big stretch mark.  Hopefully things will go smoothly!

    Same here. I just noticed mine have started to show a little more in the last few weeks.

  • All the ones I have from DD are still faded(faded more since being pregnant) but this past week I have noticed I have a few new ones.
  • With DD I got some around my belly button but that was it. They have re-stretched and gone back to that darker color, but I am sure they will fade back down.

    I did get a few new ones just on the left side, which is strange to me because I am smaller this time and have gained less weight. Oh well.

    I was lucky enough not to get any stretch marks last time or this time.

  • I have noticed a couple new ones but for the most part my stretch marks from DD are still faded except for the tops of them were they have slightly extended with this pregnancy .  I have gained no weight actually still down 5 or 6 lbs from my start weight so i guess that is why i havent gotten many new 1s.
