    i will prob jinx myself by replying now lol but with my first i only got one stretch mark and that was from my belly piercing right at the end of my preg, so fingers crossed for this time, been slapping on the baby oil and coco butter agian same as last time, but then my mum has had 5 children and hasnt got a single stretchie so could just be genes x

    I don't have any yet... but Chops has a lot of growing to do... he's only about 2lbs 5oz at the moment (according to scan on Monday).

    I'm going to step up the oil!!! :laugh2:

    I thought I'd totally escaped them as my old silver ones just seemed to get longer but then last night I noticed I've got like purple thread veins on either side of my bump so think it might be the makings of them.

    I noticed the first one last week (32 weeks) even though I have used more than enough oil every evening ! Looks like if they are planning to come they will make an appearance at some point :(
