    Me too!!!

    I was already covered on tiny stretch marks that carrying DD didn't seem to add that many other than a few thicker ones on my lower tummy.

    My sister got none from puberty, not even tiny ones. She didn't get any from pregnancy either.

    I got them in puberty - on my butt and hips - but none during pregnancy (except for a weird tiny line on my belly button, where my ring hole is).

    Both.

    I got them on my hips and thighs when I went through puberty. I got a LOT on my stomach during pregnancy. I have some very light ones on my boobs and inner upper arms too... they're barely noticeable but I think they came before pregnancy.

    I have a few on one hip (no idea why one hip though? LOL) from puberty. 0 from pregnancy 1 & 2. I also have never used any stretch mark products.
    I believe its the different types of hormones, and possibly as an adult and pregnant you are more likely to look after your body, inside and out, than as a teenager?

    I didn't get any during puberty or first pregancy, got one tiny one on my boob when milk came in and so far havent gotten any in this pregnancy either, but I still have 8 weeks to go so who knows. I used bio-oil with DS1 twice a day but this time I'm just using moogoo cream. Oh and my mum doesn't have any either (3 kids)

    Thanks to everyone who replied.
    It's such a curiosity to me, stretchmarks. I got almost none in puberty and my mother has none but yet i have ones so bad doctors/midwives get shocked (which is not great for my confidence) *sigh*
    Oh well sucks to be me...

    Don't worry - I've had people commenting about how horrible my stretchmarks were too MM (elsewhere on the web... they were speculating why mine were so horrid). They were all, "she must have put on HEAPS of weight during pregnancy!" etc, but I just had a big baby... and she stretched me beyond help.

    Lots of people have really OTT stretchies... but they usually fade somewhat...

    Here's my tummy (not front on, but you can see how high they go up anyway) http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...stretchies.gif

    And recently... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...s/SDC12511.jpg

    Still would never dream of revealing my stomach in swimwear or anything, but it's not full of bright purple lines... just crinkly skin-coloured ones.

    I got none in puberty at all. In my pregnancies I got only small inconspicuous ones just below my navel.

    Thanks SassyMummy mine look the same. I always had people comment on how small my belly was during pregnancy but it was still more than my skin could handle.
    Definitely hurts when a medical professional makes comments like 'wow, you have really bad stretchmarks' - like i hadn't noticed
