I felt them happen....and now I have have a stretch marked vageen!!! ������

coneywonder Fri 22-May-15 17:29:47

With my second, I felt my stomach muscles separating twice. It was awful. It didn't hurt, but it was clear what was happening, and I was gutted. My eldest was climbing on me at the time.

I had no idea you could get stretch marks down there! Are they still painful??

FernGullysWoollyPully Fri 22-May-15 18:07:21

I have an absolute web of them all over my tummy and then stretching onto my thighs and down my foof. They are not just thin stretchmarks oh no, they are caverns! Some at least a little fingers width.

Weirdest thing is no public hair grows on them!

sarkymare Fri 22-May-15 18:13:27

Ha! Fern I'm glad you said that!

I have a few long deep stretch marks going from my pubic bone to my fanjo. As there is no hair growing on the marks and I haven't de-bushed in quite a while my pubes have a bit of a central parting going on. If I don't shave soon I will end up with full blown curtains I'm sure grin

grinhahaha brilliant sarkymare, bloody brilliant x

I've had that feeling OP, I daren't even look. In fact it's a rule of mine, I don't look until at least 6 months after giving birth.

It's not really weird that they have no pubic hair growing on them, they are new skin that doesn't have follicles on it because it's just kind of been created with the stretching, same way a scar would never have hair growing directly on it, no follicles.

coneywonder Fri 22-May-15 19:58:25

I can't miss them they are right below my pubic bone. As red as the summers nights sky :/

MummyPiggy87 Fri 22-May-15 20:22:26

Lmfao coney I'm so sorry but that's made me absolutely crack up!! The way you described it..
I didn't realise you could get them there either and especially like that! The ones I got came slowly and itched, I have terrible marks but none down there!?! How bizarre!!

Englishrose2000 Fri 22-May-15 20:22:43

My foof also has a centre parting lol and yea wide stretch marks down there!! And I'm putting myself through another pregnancy ! Heaven knows what it will be like by the end lol

MummyPiggy87 Fri 22-May-15 20:24:03

And sarkymare omg stop! Hahaha so funny!!

coneywonder Fri 22-May-15 21:22:01

Honestly I didn't think it was possible to feel them happening let alone actually get them there!! I thought I had quite a chubby vagina area so didn't think it was possible to stretch that area!! It felt like guitar string snapping against my skin and its still tender now!! Funny but owwww x

WienerDiva Fri 22-May-15 21:24:28

Never mind a centre parting, mine has corn rows!

Totally normal op, sorry.

Englishrose2000 Fri 22-May-15 22:44:43

Corn rows lol that cracked me up !!!
