I was putting cream on my stomach last night when I noticed a short red stretchmark. I never really paid attention to what marks I had from before, but now I am paranoid that I am getting stretchmarks already! DF also thinks it might be a new mark. I'm not even very big yet so I guess I just didn't really think it could happen this early. I'm keeping my fingers crossed it is just an old one I never noticed before though. Has anyone else gotten stretchmarks this early?
I swear when I saw the line on the stick mine started coming out..
Just lube up your belly with lots of creams, try Bio-oil.
I've heard that if you're gonna get them, nothing you do with help.. but it's worth a try hun!
Look sweets, I have had stretchmarks since I was 13 years old and I am NOT a big girl at all, it happens to the best of us. It doesn't mean your ugly or anything of that sort. I know it cripples your pride and makes you feel gross but a lot of women (big and small) have them and it's nothing you should feel ashamed of. Enjoy your pregnancy and even if you do get stretchmarks don't worry about it too much. It isn't like anyone is going to judge you based off of that - I promise!
Unfortunately it is what it is. Nothing you can really do about it. I have no stretch marks yet (from pregnancy) but figure that I'm doomed to get them. I have stretch marks from losing weight. So, stretchmarks are definitely in my near future. : (
Yup, got them. Started with 1 new one on my right hip when I was maybe 8 weeks and now existing ones from my hips/back are starting to GROW towards the front argh. I'm not even growing that much--at least that's what everyone tells me! Been using Bio-oil and Palmer's (which one depends on my mood, Bio-oil's a bit greasy) since day 1. Oh well, genetics...
