I don't think you can get pregnancy stretch marks at only 3 weeks... You should just make a dr appointment to find out if you are pregnant
Well I have the stretch marks on me...and my stomach is growing slowly but surely
At 3 weeks your stomach wouldn't have grown. At all.
If anything you would just have bloating. Nothing to cause stretch marks.

at 3 weeks, there's nothing to have caused stretching, its an embryo.

Take a cheap $.88 pregnancy test because they work better than the expensive ones.

3 weeks is too early for a pregnancy test to detect. Wait until you miss your period to take one, preferably a week after you miss your period.

Go see a doctor.

You don't get stretch marks at 3 weeks.   You wouldn't even be bloating at 3 weeks as tge hcg levels wouldn't be high enough to start triggering symptoms.

Are you sure your not further than you think in your pregnancy?

You should definitely set up an appointment. If you can't afford it go to your health department where you live and go from there. If you take certain medication such as birth control and etc. It wouldn't show up on a pregnancy stick because I've been there before. I miscarried because it of and didn't know.

This post is from July, so if you took a pregnancy test (by 4 weeks, first day of missed period) this is Sept!  You would know by now. As for the stretch marks. I just now started getting them, this is my third pregnancy and I'm 29 weeks. With my first and second I didn't get them until 6 months. So no, by three weeks there wouldn't be any growth to cause stretch marks,  unless your just gaining weight with out being pregnant.  Good luck!

3 weeks is way too soon to tell. I didn't get stretch marks until I was 7 months pregnant. At 3 weeks its only bloating but I assure you your stomachs not growing at this stage
