anyone have stretch marks?

Do you ladies have stretch marks?? I currently don't and I'm 29 weeke. My boyfriend puts some cocoa butter stuff on my stomach and breasts a few times a week but I think it's to early for me to develop them. When did u start to get them?  Any one have any home remedies?

I started getting mine around 35 weeks...just at the bottom of my belly. I thought I was in the clear and then they snuck up on me!

I am 35w 5d and so far I have only gotten stretch marks on the bottom of my boobs. But I've been using belly balm by Biggs &  Featherbelle and they disappear in less than a day after I put some on. I love it!

I'm 33 weeks and got my first stretch mark at 31 weeks, near my belly button. I've been using coconut oil everyday on my belly / breasts / hips, as that's where I've got old stretch marks. Not sure if the coconut oil has prevented any more, but it keeps my skin nice and hydrated.

I'm 39 weeks and don't have any. I have used cocoa butter every day, sometimes twice a day after I get out of the shower since I found out I was expecting.

I only got a few while I was pregnant with my first baby boy. But after I had him that's when I got all of mine the dr said it was from going from huge to lil all in about 2 weeks.

I got my stretch marks early i hate them ! They are not bad but i hate seeing them and wondering if they are going to get worse im only 19 weeks and only gained about 6-7lbs in my pregnancy but i see my tummy getting bigger..ive always been a thick girl but never had a belly that hung over my jeans so it makes me real uncomfortable seeing the stretch marks especially before i found out i was pregnant i was losing weight so me gaining it backs really ***** except i guess its for a good cause (my baby)

This is my forth pregnancy n I have never had stretch marks. So I wouldn't know how to deal with them

Absolutely.  I had one from my first pregnancy (a 2nd trimester loss) which I wear as a reminder of that child.  Now there's a lot more of them... 27w+2 and I'm tiger striped.  :-)
