    Mm I don't have any yet either, I reckon we might possibly get them afterwards, when the belly deflates and suddenly they'll be there :/
    They are our battle scars anyway aren't they, I still don't want them though haha x

    I got awful stretch marks with my last 2 but none so far with this baby., I guess my skin is already stretched but I had most of that skin removed with my tummy tuck.
    I was expecting major ones this time.

    Like everyone im expecting them right at the last moment though lol.

    Good luck! One of my old pals had five kids and never got one! I don't have one on my entire body and didn't get one last pregnancy either.... hoping the same for me this time around. Our family has really great skin though. We also eat tons of fruit and veggies w/ little meat. I think that helps.

    Yep same for me, they appeared after birth with ds1. I have more this time round although still all below belly button.
    You may be lucky though x

    Stretch Marks are down to skin type hun, some peoples skin isn't as elastic and can't cope with the sudden growth - the only way to minimise them is to not grow too fast (i'm not sure exactly how you're supposed to do that, and i failed miserably with both my pregnancies) If you get them you'll learn to love them as a sign of the beautiful baby you grew inside you, if you don't then you feel lucky that they passed you by and you came out unmarked- neither is a bad thing. xx

    Mine seemed to appear post delivery with DD too... Thought had managed to get away with them... You may well be ok yet though, keep using the cream x

    I didnt get them with my 3 singleton pregnancies and I was over due with first. All my babes were about 8lbs hoping to avoid them this time around too. We will see if it can happen with twins! Good luck hun. Ur profile pic is beautiful! Good luck and welcome to the minority group of escaping stretchmarks in pregnancy lol
