Stretched skin from 2nd pregnancy, even worse 3rd time?

I had one stretch mark with dd1 and belly button popped.

Dd2 born 18 m later, carried her all front again but lower due to weak muscles I think. And in the last three weeks I got stretch marks down vertically around my belly button and the skin is loose...

Will it get worse third time ?

My tummy is like a road map from ds1 with a definate loose but above my bikini line that didn't shift even when I got back to pre- pregnancy weight. With ds2 (who was a whole lb lighter) no new stretch marks and loose skin no worse. Lost weight again to slimmest in years. That loose bit is still there! Now 30 weeks pregnant with dc3 no new stretch marks but bump is higher and has not filled out that lower bit of skin yet. I think a tummy tuck is in order one day blush
