    I thought I would have loads by now as my skin has about as much elasticity as a house brick and i have dozens of scars all over from previous growth spurts.

    No sign yet, how about everyone else?

    Well I must be the unlucky one as I have a few freddie krueger looking scratches on my thighs and 2 faint ones appearing on my tummy, really low down. I have been plastering the cocoa butter on to no avail!!! :cry:

    Yeah I have them!! only on the lower bit of my belly and not really big and dark hoping I wont get too much bigger then they wont spread, although I'm past caring now and think of them as my marks of motherhood. Besides they'll fade and at least you dont get them where people see them all the time like your face!

    None on the main of my belly (just one on each piercing scars on my belly botton).
    All over my boobs though :?

    Absolutely no stretch marks of any description anywhere...which is weird. I was a very fat child and have some silvered out marks on my thighs from then that came back when I put some weight on a few years ago. I haven't had any this time around though, not even around my bellybutton, which has gone all weird and podgy - but hasn't really popped yet.

    And my doctor thinks I'm big!!! I know my handle is Tiny Sue but that's a joke between my husband and me. I'm actually quite a big woman, 5 feet 8 and normally not much shy of the ten stone mark. At the moment, I'm almost thirteen! I outweigh my OH! :shock:

    Well I already have old scars all over my thighs, on my boobs, on the backs of my arms, and all over my freddie krueger thighs, so I am just waiting for the inevitable! :?

    I have noticed 1 which is very faint its like a silvery line with a purple tinge to it right under the skin. I was very depressed when i found it. I was hoping i was going to escape them.

    None as yet and still hoping I won't have them. I have olive skin and am quite use to tanning in the sun, therefore I am a bit shocked that my skin would not be lees hydrated.

    Again, since Week 5, I have been aplying Extra Virgin Olive Oil on my entire body morning and night, so if I do get them, there goes that theory!!

    Let's keep those stretch marks at bay girls!!! Good Luck dust your way...
