I got a few stretchmarks when pg with dd. With me getting pg again so soon I have gotten more and they are quite visable now. But, I dont care. I dont feel a need to spend any amount of cash trying different creams to get rid of them. I feel that they are a 'mark' as such of my being pregnant and strangely, I am quite proud of them. Not to the extent that I will intentionally flash them off though. Am I the only one who has thought 'bollocks to stretchmarks'?
I thought I wouldn't give a stuff. Was expecting them as I have loads on my hips from puberty, but then I got to about 36 weeks without any appearing and thought I might get away with it. They've now started to appear and have got worse in the last couple of weeks (am due tomorrow!). I was miffed at first, but have returned to being philisophical about them
hi This is my third and I don't seem to have the small veiny stretch marks I have seen on other women instead I have about 5 huge scar looking thing running up from my bikini ok e to my belly button and each from half an inch to n inch thick. My mother in law said it looked like I had been mauled - she isn't mean she's lovely she just tells it like it is LOL. To be honest it doesn't bother me in the slightest when I am pregnant they go red but when I am not the are a sort of silvery colour, visible but not awful. My husband still snuzzles up to my tummy so he doesn't seem to care either!
I have loads ( well road map springs to mind !lol ) since my 2 dds birth 8 years ago but they dont bother me at all in fact they are faded to skin colour now and i i dont mind if i get any with this pg either! No plans to be parading around in bikini! A tankini does the job just as well.
i got a few tiny ones at 38wks and TBH i was gutted! then after i had DS (19 wks) i srunk back down quickly and i got even more i really hate them and am trying everything to reduce the redness!! you probably all think im mad but it's just they way i feel, despite re-assurance from DH! i have seen worse on other women but i still hate looking a them, thankfully though they are all below pant line!!! just proves everyone is different!
I'm on my 5th pregnancy, I got loads with my first - huge nasty scary ones - but haven't had any new ones since then. I actually find them quite useful, the skin is thinner so it hurts less when I inject my clexane into them
