    So I`m 27 weeks along and have already gained just about 40lbs . . o_O I know . And now that I`m getting closer to 8/9 months , I`m steadily looking at my tummy for signs of stretch marks . I know it`s inevitable as I already have small stretch marks on the sides of my stomach to my thighs from a huge growth spurt/gaining too much at one point in time but they are faintly noticeable now . Just worrying about getting new ones . I know I shouldn`t be worrying about it as I am bringing a new life into this world.

    Wondering when you ladies have started showing signs of stretch marks?

    I have new ones on my breasts and a few on my hips, none on my stomach yet (from this pregnancy). With my first I got a big stretch mark on my bump right at the end, something like 39 weeks or so. I'm crossing my fingers that I'll get away without any new ones this time, but I doubt it! I just know a few ugly ones will pop up right before my due date!:dohh:

    That`s what I`m expecting too. A few ones right before my due date, lol. My grandmother, mom, & aunt have no stretch marks on their tummies, just on their sides/buttocks from pregnancy. I already have them there so I wouldn`t care if new ones appear there, lol. I have a tattoo where my pelvic bone used to be, lol, now it`s out with my new bump :)

    I had none until 40 weeks then got a few small stretchies below my belly button. Thought I'd got away with not getting them!! I put on 3 stone which I don't think helped..... :dohh:

    Yeah, I`ve put on 2.7 stone so far (used a calculator, lol). We`ll see how much I end up totaling at the end in 13 weeks, lol.
