About 3 days after the birth! I had none throughout the pregnancy then as my tummy shrank a few appeared. I was not happy!

Last week! I noticed a mark on my bump & wasn't sure if it was a bruise or a stetch mark but then another appeared and they were both definitely lines.
I thought I'd been really lucky (I guess with 2 I still am!) But have been warned they are more likely to appear post birth!

I didn't get any... neither did my mum or grandma so maybe its a genetic thing!

At about 30 weeks. It started with one, small, purpley-red, angry- looking line, and now I reckon I have about 14 'big' ones and a handful of little ones
Have you started to get them?

Never last time. This time I've none on my stomach but loads appeared on my thighs despite me only having put on 8lbs!! Grrr

Nenas- apparently it is genetic!

My first one appeared in my sleep at about 30 weeks. Now I look like a stripy tiger on my tummy..lots of them all very raised and red. I was horrified at first but I have none anywhere else and like people say, it just shows how youve carried a baby :-)

I think i have my first ones appearing, i thought they were bruises or marks from my trousers, but i defo think they are stretch marks, i was expecting them as i have the type of skin to get them and had loads as a teenager!
will keep using my creams etc, but as we say if your going to get them then your going to get them x

I've got my first one with more to come I reckon. I'm lathering on the bio oil to try to minimise their impact but am resigned to the fact I won't be able to stop them - not going to get too upset about it though, like Gemini said, it's a reminder of carrying your baby!

I got two at 37 weeks. They're still there, little bu**ers.

I was 1 of the lucky ones |& never got any, put lots of cocoa butter on (just the normal stuff rather than the pregnancy stuff) so not sure if it helped.

About 33 weeks. Ialready had stretch marks on my tummy but now also have about 5 red 'spots' where the skin's stretching even more. Just on the one side though as that's where baby is, I have nothing at all on the other side!
