    Over the past week I've gotten a few stretch marks on just one side of my stomach. I'm not complaining. I hope they don't show up on the other side, too. Has this happened to anyone else? They'll probably appear on the other side later I'm guessing?? :(

    Not happy....

    yeah, i had stretch marks on just one side for quite a while, I think it was because my little madam pretty much just lay on one side, I have got a few the other side now too though

    When I first started getting stretch marks, I only had them on the left hand side of my bump, then my hips, all on one side,
    now they are everywhere lol

    I mistakenly thought I didn't have many and then I took a photo of the bottom of my bump and I look like I've been stabbed!
    I actually look like I'm covered in red leopard print - attractive eh? :)

    I have stretchmarks on both sides, but one side is definately worse than the other. I think Roo must favour my left hand side lol :haha:

    At the moment I have a small patch of stretch marks on my left side, under my bump where I can't normally see them, until I looked at bump in the mirror on Sunday lol. I'm sure they are the first of many more to come!

    I think you're more likely to get them on the side where LO's back usually is first, rather than the feet side, as it puts more strain on things.

    Yup....when pregnant with DS (now 3) i only got 5 verticle stretch marks on the left hand side of my tummy. length about the size of your thumb.
    They didnt appear anywhere else.

    This time the same has happened again, this lil guy has just stretched the stretch marks that are already there, so i have the same 5 ones, only now they are longer lol!

    I dont mind that they are one sided as if i go to the beach i can easily not look completely stupid with one hand placed on my lower tummy lol!
