So I`m 27 weeks along and have already gained just about 40lbs . . 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?
