Stretch marks

Not even at 6 months yet and I already have 3 small stretch marks. At my last doctor appt I had only gained 5 pounds since finding out we were expecting! Am I alone or is this happening to other moms to be? I didnt think I could get them soo soon!!

i've already got tiger stripes from my first pregnancy, so i didn't get hardly any with my last preg. and i don't expect to get any with this one. I'm using the body butter from bath and body works this time though. it's full of the same good stuff for skin as the baby stretch mark lotions, but smells yummier. :)

I did not get one during my last pregnancy and I have 3 tiny ones on my thigh!!! Ugh, we bought the cocoa stretch mark lotion and I couldnt use it... promptly went to the store and bought Palmers Stretch Mark and Vitamin E.... says it will prevent and reduce ones you already have. I used this last time, just could not find it at first. I had no idea either I am only 17 weeks, and have really gained much at all...

yeah, i already had them for my first, they haven't gotten any worse than they already were though, they haven't like, deepened in color yet at all, although i'm sure they will in time. I didnt get mine the first time around until I was in the last month!! I balled my eyes out(my stomach looked like someone peeled out on it all at once out of nowhere haha) They don't bother me as bad now seeing how they're pretty much the same color as my skin now, and don't stand out so much..

Although I have also only gained like 5 pounds so far, and I'm pretty big to begin with, I gained 60 with my son and only lost about 45... I haven't heard of many women getting them that early though.
