    Default Stretch marks second time round?

    Hi. I'm preggers with no 2 and I was super lucky and got zero stretch marks with baby no 1. In saying that I didn't have a huge bump and my mum was the same- 4 kids no stretch marks.
    Has anyone had none in first pregnancy only to get them in second???

    Yep. Only one very very small one near my belly button with #1 when I was overdue (got heaps on my bum and breasts though). Lots of stretchies with #2 on the underside of my bump. Only a few with my third bub.

    I didn't have none I ended up with 2 small ones after my 1st. 2nd pregnancy I ended up with a lot more maybe 15 or so on the underside of the bump. This time I haven't gotten any more yet but only 28+3 so the real stretching is still yet to happen.

    Good luck I hope ur like ur mum and end up with none again. That would a awesome

    I'd like to know too! I got lucky first time around and hoping I'll avoid them again this time.

    I didn't get any throughout my pregnancies...I got thigh/boob ones as a teenager, so was expecting some.

    I didn't get any with both of my pregnancies, but my friend got heaps in labour with her second after making it through two pregnancies without a mark.
