How many of you got strech marks? I have an amazing body that I have worked hard for all my life and I'm going to hate life if I get strech marks. Please tell me some of you never got them?

I was 18 when I had my first child and got a few stretch marks on each side of my hips, I had my second child at 23 and got one right next to my belly button. Mine aren't very noticeable and are more white than the deep purple you usually see on people. As long as you lotion up and drink lots of water to maintain the elasticity of your skin you should be good, a lot of stretch marks are sort of genetic, like if your mom got them your chances are a little higher. They may not be the prettiest things in the world but the only thing you can do is come to terms with them and realize that your body was your baby's home for 9 months, you grew a human! That is fricken amazing, there are worst things than stretch marks. I was so scared of them too but they are worth it :)
