In my first pregnancy, I didn’t get any stretchmarks *ducks*
I am pregnant again, and wondering if I might expect them this time. I seem to be getting bigger, faster. In my first pregnancy, I gained 30lbs, but my bump wasn’t enormous (DD was IUGR).
Have any of you mama’s had experience with this? Is it likely I will get stretchmarks this time if I didn’t get them the first time?

urchin: Following. I got no stretch marks with DD and gained a bunch of weight and was huge. I always had a flat stomach 6 weeks later. I’m hoping for the same this time. When are you due?

I didn’t get any stretch marks with my daughter ( other than a few on my butt, but I already had some from highschool so I don’t care) and I’m 32 weeks and so far have none. I’m hoping to avoid them this time as well!

I have not been pregnant to term etc etc. However, I do know that your uterus expands with each successive pregnancy, and that later children can have larger birth weights etc. Not sure if that helps though…

My bestie didn’t get any stretchmarks with her first baby (7lbs 8oz) but did get some with her second (9lbs 9oz). With her first she looked like she swallowed a basketball, with her second she was similarly skinny but the baby was carried a little lower.

I only have one and definitely not pregnabt again but my mom had no stretch marks with me and none with my brothers, and they were twins. It’s definitely possible you wont get them again but since each pregnancy is different I dont think there is any wsy to know for sure.

I didn’t get any stretchmarks with my first who was 6 lb 6 oz but with baby #2 who was 8 lb 12oz I did get a couple on my stomach and hips (boooo!) and they didnt show up until weeks 39 and 40. How cruel, I went through most of the pregnancy thinking I was one of those lucky mamas that doesn’t get stretch marks and then my body was like “gotcha bitch!” Lol

I didn’t get stretch marks with either one of my kids, with my second I also seem to get a lot bigger a lot faster. But I ended up weighing exactly the same when inhad both of them. But I already had some stretch marks on my inner thighs and those became more noticeable
