    wow can't believe some women get them AFTER ! i won't be able to breathe a sigh of relief until a few days after she's born (if i manage to avoid them).

    seems most got them 35 weeks onwards and I've just had a growth spurt so we shall see *strokes mustache*

    Around 35+2. I was stacking on a heap of fluid with pre-eclampsia (delivered at 35+4) so have stretchmarks on my ankles, knees, thighs, hips and belly.

    I got mine the week after my DD was born too. Only on my tummy. She was my 2nd bub and was only 4lb 4oz born but I had alot of odema. I also had the flu really bad (stayed in hospital for 12 days) and lost 12kg in 1 week. I think I got mine as I lost all of my baby weight so quickly. Had none for my 1st, 3rd or 4th pregnancy. I think it just comes down to luck and circumstances

    Around 30wks for both pregnancies. Dd1 who is now 2.5yrs - i still have 3-4 tiger stripes left on my sides. And you can actually still feel the gap between them.

    Dd2 who is 9mths old now - i have a few 'sun rays' left around my belly button. But they have almost faded away bar 2 deeper ones.

    But i used nothing during pregnacy/after to get rid of them.

    I thought i had evaded them but they showed when i was in labour. My dd sat high all pregnancy and dropped pretty fast right at the end which Im guessing caused it.

    Wait a couple of weeks before you breathe that sigh of relief! And the stretchies on my boobs showed up after as well.

    Don't worry about them though, they fade.
