    They are really big uns! Ive got them rather like that but 5 kids soon to be 6 can do that to you!! I cant take a pic to show you tho' cause Im toooooo shy and of course FAT. Mine go right up to my rigcage too.
    Try not to be too upset about it because after babys born they will fade to silvery lines (so not so obvious) baby will be worth it.

    I am 28 weeks and have them all over bump and no cream will fix it !! unfortunately just have to go with the flow nothing you can do

    i think mine look worse after as they are little ones all over which means will probably have orange peel belly after as they are so fine

    I am just worried i haave had them since about 20 weeks with all the bloating

    I am looking into laser surgery after the birth but looks like it just speeds healing of big read ones to small lines.

    Mine are thin but red at top and bottom of them would love to take a picture but struggle to look at them in the mirror. I am absolutely pertrified and most don't have them as early as I did. i will just have to make sure that i lose all the weight afterwards to make sure i am not fat as well as baggy :-(

    But I completely sympathise with you and can relate to what your going through, but people can have worse stretch marks from just being overweight and then losing the weight. Atleast we are giving a new life for the trouble of the stretch marks !!!

    I am dreading the next 12 weeks !!!

    They will die down hun. Mine were a lot worse than yours with Caitlin and they turn into silvery lines. I even got a few more red ones with Thomas! They are still red but they are dying down. Its just all part and parcel of pregnancy! :D Some people are lucky and don't get any, but the majority of people get them :hug: xx

    These are mine now - honestly they dont bother me at all, they aren't usually this long they are just stretched out.
    It doesnt take that long for them to fade to this - within a few years they are hardly noticeable.

    I didnt get any with this baby , but with 2 of my girls i ended up with a stretch mark from each im glad they are both on my left side , they are now white and you can hardley see them , I think i must have really stretchy skin because im on baby # 8 . but i ended up with some nasty red scars from having my gallbladder removed in Dec , in my opinion they are just as bad as stretch marks if not worse , I doubt i will ever wear a bikini again . im ure your stretchys will fade after while hun , my 15 year old daughter had some pretty bad stretch marks on her sides , its weird because she is very thin , some people just get them and others dont .
