    I was looking at myself in the mirror a few days ago and looked at my hips and I could see faint red marks more at the back of me than the side of my hips, if you get what I mean? Anyway asked Tim and he thought they were marks from my jeans but I showed them to my mum today and she said "no they're faint stretchmarks, I had them in exactly the same place with you". If they don't get any worse then I think once they fade you won't see them but as I've still got potentially 4-6 weeks left I fear they're going to get worse!!!!! I knew I wouldn't escape them again, I was just too lucky last time!!!!! :dohh:x

    Oh no, it's gutting isn't it? I've been really lucky too, considering the size of my bumpy, and have only had some faint ones really. However over the past week or so they've become a bit pinker and more visible, but I'm hoping they won't get too much worse.......(reaches forthe Palmer's cream)

    I've been got too. :cry: Just a couple of small marks under my bump to the left. I think I've been having a growth spurt the past few days so probably all been a bit fast. Slapping on the cocoa butter twice a day now in the hope to avert getting any more!

    Luckily I haven't got any yet, which is surprising cos my bump looks and feels huge! Looks like I might not be completely out of the woods yet though! I'll be slathering on the cocoa butter like there's no tomorrow!
