hi just wondering as i am almost 10 weeks pregnant with my second dc. I got quite large stretchmarks with ds which are obviosly still there just silvery, but will i get a completely new set this time round or will my existing marks just 'restretch'? i have no idea???? just wondering

I am almost 31 weeks with my second and had largish stretchmarks first time round. This time, despite being a bigger bump and more straight out in front and being smaller when I started this time, it just appears to be the same stretch marks restretching - or else, I am getting more in exactly the same place which isn't the end of the world given it was pretty messed up first time round !

i am hoping that will happen with me too, im pretty certain im going to get stretchmarks this time too as i have allways got stretchmarks when growing (especially around my boobs!) id just much rather get them on the same place as the ones i have from before because otherwise i will actually end up looking like a human road map hmm

Mine just got longer with each pg. Ds2 (my 3rd) was 10lbs 2oz so they were up past my tummy button by the time I had him shock.
