    Is it normal to start getting stretch marks this early? Does this mean I'm doomed to get horrible stretch marks all over? I've only put on about 1 kilo so far..
    Not stretch marks, Tazz, tiger stripes if they're on your butt they'll be hidden by most clothing. I have stretch marks like that from my fat days and they've faded to white. With DS I started on the bio oil and vitamin a cream at 8 weeks because I knew my skin was prone to it! If you're worried, maybe start the ritual now?

    Default Stretch Marks At 14 Weeks?

    @Sally1981 i've been on the bio oil since 13 weeks but only on my boobs and tummy, might have to starting getting DF to rub it on my butt for me! 😊 i was only using cocoa butter but luckily you got me onto the bio oil, my tummy and boobs look okay so far! Fingers crossed it's just my butt that's affected by them.

    I got stretch marks on my tummy at 14wks, was devastated! Had not even put on any weight, but I guess your body is just changing regardless of weight gain. I thought I'd get them really bad considering they started so early, but they aren't too bad. My DS is 17months now and they have faded heaps, no longer that angry red colour! I used bio oil or coconut oil on tummy and cocoa butter everywhere else. Not sure if it helps, but it sure doesn't hurt!
