    I have to admit I've beem a little obsessed! Now that I'm in the home stretch (pun intended) I am still rubbing down with Bio Oil daily and inspecting myself like crazy! I have a cousin whose baby turned breech in the last few weeks and she sprang stretch marks like crazy! I love my bikinis too much when I am non-pregnant! Almost there, almost there. :happydance:



    Of course there's much more important things to worry about but LO's very healthy and aside from rampant morning/allday sickness, constant conjestion, fatigue and major pelvic pain, this pregnancy has been a breeze.

    Right behind you at 32 weeks and no stretchies yet!! I am also hoping I go the last 8 weeks without them. (well I have them on my bum and thighs, but not belly!)

    Fingers crossed for us!

    I'm at 37 weeks (2nd pregnancy, my first was born small at 37 weeks) and still none. I can't believe it. I got them on my hips and breasts in puberty, but those are faded. I keep expecting it to happen because my sister got them BAD. My mom, however, only got one single mark out of five kids!!! I feel vain for hoping, but I have had every other complication.....I really hope I get to keep my mark free belly.

    Sorry but my one stretchmark, yes just the one, appeared just over 36 weeks! Gutted! At the end of the day though, they are just reminders of you becoming a Mummy.
    I haven't used any oil or anything, suppose it's a bit late now ha ha xxx

    Me too!!
    Even when I was in labour the mw's were commenting on how gorgeous and smooth my tummy was,I was dead chufffed with myself.
    But lo and behold once he was born and my tummy started shrinking back they appeared:cry:
    But some women do escape getting them so maybe you will be 1 of the lucky 1's!

    Well I have them - lots - underneath my bump looks like a road map! My mum got them and so did my older sister so I was bound too! This is despite my best efforts with bio-oil too!!

    Me too. I got to 38 weeks and then had a really tight day and noticed 3 above my belly button and then was horrified to see in the mirror what seemed like 100 below my belly button! Got used to them now. They aren't red though like I see in other people pictures. They are shiny scar like appearance.

    I have been religiously rubbing oils since day one of my pregnancy and I am just getting one on my belly - it is literally getting more and more visible week after week but I expect them to appear afterwards anyway... I call it a love scar :)

    Interesting! I've had stretchmarks most of my adult life due to weight gain/loss but nothing from this pregnancy! My tummy is clear of it and I haven't been using any Bio-oil (although I have some) or other creams.

    I had none at all until 39 weeks and then two big ones appeared- one each side of my belly button! They started off faint and white but now the more overdue I'm getting the worse they are getting!! :growlmad:
