Stretch marks with second pregnancy?

Hi!  I'm in my second pregnancy and was wondering about stretch marks.

For those of you who are in you second or third pregnancy and didn't get stretch marks the first time around---Did you get any the second time?  

And for those that did the first time, did you also get them the second time?  More or less? 

 Thank you!

Re: Stretch marks with second pregnancy?

  • I didn't get them with either pregnancy.
  • I got them with my first pregnancy (at the VERY end) and didn't get them the second time around.  The second time the pregnancy went 3 weeks longer and I gained a little more weight, too.

  • I had a few the first time, second time I gained less weight overall but had new and worse stretch marks which have taken a long time to fade :(

  • The current research suggests that the main risk factors for stretch marks are maternal age (younger women develop more stretch marks), weight gain in pregnancy, family history and increased birth weight (i.e heavier babies). Unfortunately, the evidence does not support that cocoa butter reduces stretch marks. I hope this information helps.

    I would have never thought this. Is there a theory behind this?
