I'm 30 weeks pregnant and I just started getting them. I have 4 small marks on the lower part of my belly and a few on my sides.. not dark at all. When did you start getting them?

I started getting them when I was bout 3 months pregnant. So, I would consider yourself a little lucky. However, if you find that you are starting to get them, you could start using a cocoa butter or shea butter lotion. Or some other stretch mark removal cream. I plan to do so afterwards, because I am still going to keep getting them as I continue on in my pregnancy. And I only have 4 weeks left so... =]]. But, just an idea.

With my first child he tore me up. I had stretch marks all over except my stomach. Now that I am preg w/my 3rd child and have 3 tiny ones on my stomach

Woooo Hooo! I am 35 weeks with my third child and am happy to say I have not one single stretch mark......Sorry ladies but I have not much else to brag about so I have t obe happy about this one thing....thanks mom for the good genes :)

I swear they all came with the ever growing of my stomach. My Dr. also told me that it was hereditary and nothing I would really be able to avoid, and from talking to other women who swore by cream and had them blossom out in the latter part of pregnancy anyways I never bothered w/creams & lotions, I'm forgetful! I haven't really had any new ones w/#2 though :)

I got mine right when I hit the nine month mark with my first. They started out as just tiny little purple marks right underneath my belly then BAM! It was like overnight my entire belly was covered! I was so confused too! I had been using the lotions and all of that stuff. Turns out you inherit the gene from your mother. So if she had strech marks then you will too more than likely. :( I'm 8 months preggo now and haven't gotten any new ones so I'm crossing my fingers. The ones I do have are all faded now so it's not to bad. I'm glad they don't stay purple forever! :)

my friend told me to use 'vitamin e' so i've been using it since i found out i was pregnant. it really works. i didn't get it for my first child and i don't have any now...

Ug... started getting mine at about 30 weeks. 2 on the top of my right leg and a few on my left butt cheek. That's all. None on my tummy. Luckily the dark ones will be covered by a swim suit when that time comes again. I sure hope they get lighter afterwards like people say they do...

I didnt get them with my first pregnancy until I was 38 weeks along. Then OMG, they just appeared overnight like a big purple spider web. You ladies are right tho, they are well worth it. Ive only got a couple new ones with this baby and im 35 + 4 atm, they only popped up a few days ago. Hoping I wont get anymore, but really, who cares.. we all have them :)

yeah mine are like a purple colour and i only have them on one side of my tummy i also hope they fade, the ones on my legs are the worst tho, they go long ways instead of downwards and they are a nasty deep shade of purple, guess its just what we have to put up with at least we get some thing so fantastic at the end of this all and it makes it worth it xx

I got my first stretch marks that same week!! Mine are only on the lower part of the belly so far but we'll see. Mine are darker than I would like. Hopefully they really will go away afterwards!!

i've always had them on my legs, sides and thighs, but i'm now 32weeks and have just noticed them coming on my tummy...use cream morning and night and it should help them to stay at bay...best of luck xx
