I know they say stretch marks are genetic and yes, my mom got a lot of stretch marks from her pregnancies but mom is 5'2" and I'm 5'9".
Both my sisters have had babies and they are both smaller than me...one got ZERO and is 5'6" but she gave birth at 20 so I'm afraid her youthful skin was on her side (I'm 31). My other sister is tiny like my mom and got a lot.
Am I foolish to think I can get away with none? Any tall moms out there not get any stretch marks even though her tiny mom did? Does height even matter at all?? I know this is such a silly thing to be worried about but I'm curious.
I'm 31w2d and no marks yet, also use tummy butter just in case.
Also, I was 140lb pre-pregnancy and have gained 20lbs so far.
