I didn't get stretch marks until about 2 weeks before I had my son. But depending on your body and how big your belly does or doesn't get will depend on when you get them. However do not worry if you do. You can get rid of them. My mom told me to get palmers strech mark lotion its about $5 at walmart and I used that and they are all gone...one of my friends also found that tanning (after she had the baby of course) made them go away. In the mean time use cocoa butter. And put it all over no just your tummy.

I hate seeing all these girls saying they didnt get any haha! I think most people get them around 38 weeks. I started with just a coupple on my sides ab a month b4 I had her then they eventually just started MULTIPLYING!!!!! They were SO bad when I was pregnant, but they really seemed to have faded like as soon as she was outta there! Abd the cocoa butter and all that... If you ask me it makes no difference, if you get them, you get them There is NO stopping them. Now I dont mean dont use anything. I suggest doing so, it couldnt hurt huh!? I used everything I could find from 4 weeks til after I had her! But really who cares lol you'll get to a point where you dont care cuz ur a mama. I even wore a 2 piece cuz ppl go out there looking way worse hahaha. good luckkk!

I didn't get any stretch marks with my 1st baby until i went overdue & they were only the little white marks. Now im 30 weeks pregnant with my 2nd and i have noticed 3 or 4 just popped up on my hips & the front of my belly but low down so i can only see them if i tilt the mirror. I didn't use any cream or oils with my 1st but this time i've used Bio-Oil and other moisturizers twice a day and still seemed to get the purple stretch marks :( It all depends on each pregnancy and the elasticity of your skin.

I never got any stretch marks, anywhere, but was worried the whole time. For the last two and a half months I used coco butter, and used it a few times after he was born. I have no idea if that was what helped... I have some friends that didnt have any until the last few weeks, and some friends that got them after the had the baby when the skin was still stretched out and loose.. It's hard to tell what will work and what wont, and impossible to be able to tell when they will come. Good luck.

I really can't remember when i got them but i noe that they started to get bad around the end, but wat i used and am still using is Tummy Butter. It works really well and not only on your tummy.

I didn't get stretch marks at all. I was like you... worried and waiting for it. lol. If your 29 weeks and not seeing a single stretch mark, you probably won't get them. I had my baby at 35 weeks and the only scar I was left with was a tiny dot from where one of the moniters was on me. I was in the hospital for almost 2 weeks before I had my baby and moniters were on me 24/7.
