Third for me, too and at 36+4 no stretch marks... (crosses fingers and mutters to herself) but my Mum and sister didn't get them either. Although, I still douse myself in Bio-Oil a few times a week just in case.
how great for you! how about posting about an ACTUAL problem on here, rather than almost boasting to people who will click on this thread who do have really bad stretch marks and feel crap about it. No one cares that you don't have any.
I got through the whole of my last pregnancy with none. Thought I had got away with it this time round. Looked at 39+2 (on Tuesday) - I have a fresh crop. Will serve me right for gloating. Don't count your chickens, OP
Thank you all for sharing your experince. As this is my first baby and my mum died when I was quite young, I didn't have anyone else to ask. I can now prepare myself for the possibilty that stretch marks may still happen. I'm just trying to prepare myself for any possible eventualities and could not get an answer to this question which thanks to your collective advice I finally have. I'm sorry if my question came across as 'boasting' but given that stretch marks are beyond our control (similar to whether or not you tear when you give birth) I had no concept it could bre read that way. Apologies for any unintended offence caused.
With both of mine I didn't have any until a couple of days before they were born, then I got quite a few. Bio oil doesn't make any difference - I used it religiously in 1st pregnancy and didn't bother in the second one and had pretty much he same results. I wouldn't worry though, they really don't show that much now they are a silvery colour and I have worn a bikini after both pregnancies (and I am quite vain body conscious!)
