    Default When did your stretch marks appear ?

    As title says when did you get stretch marks in pregnancy ?

    I'm currently 31 weeks with my first and have none and no sign of any.

    Bu-ut my mum has them really really bad.

    She's a tiny person and we are a similar build so I expect to get them. However I've only put on 5kg and my belly isn't huge.

    When did yours appear?

    TIA

    Mine arrived when DS was about 3-4 weeks old. I didn't get many and they're very faint, but they definitely weren't there when he was born!

    Praying to the stretch mark gods it stays that way!

    39 weeks I noticed a few but were barely noticeable. Since I've had DS they are SOOO much more noticeable. I'm hoping that in time they will settle and the colour will fade out of them at least.

    I think I was about 32 weeks with my first and I got new ones at about 35 weeks with my second.
    They were 9pd2 and 10pd6 !
    I'm covered in snail trails now
