For all of you moms that have had more then one child [and have stretch marks]. I have pretty bad stretch marks and I was wondering if when I am pregnant with my next baby if they just restretch or if I will get a lot more stretch marks.

It will depend if you gain weight in the same places or not. Mine just re-stretched for the most part (but I didn't get as big the second time around-thankfully lol)

i never got any with my first but got some with my second pregnancy (im almost 40 weeks now) but i spoke to my dermatologist who said that it all depends on your weight gain and also how your skin stretched the first time. I had a girl the first time and generally swelled all over so it was a slow process of steady weight gain and i didnt have any stretch marks. but with this pregnancy, although ive gained 10 more lbs than with my first, im having a boy now and im all belly! i have a round, tight belly instead of general weight all around so i believe that stressed out my skin causing the stretch marks. My dermatologist did say that you are less likely to get new stretch marks if you have the same type of weight gain second time around since the skin has already stretched- problem being that a lot of women gain more or different weight with their second. It all depends. hope this helped :)

In my case, I got more stretch marks and the ones I had stretched. Each child will grow differently and your body will too.....
