    30 weeks and got my first one, just under belly button! It's a deep one so very noticeable! Makes my scar from my belly bar just above my belly button lol. Was gutted when I found it, can't even see it from where I am lol! Got bio oil so hopefully will help it but more than likely I'll b covered by morning!!!!!! I didn't put cream on daily, probs twice in 30 weeks, feel like if your gonna get them your gonna get them no amount of cream will stop it!

    I have only got a few but instead have got lots of little bruise like marks which mw said were mini blood vessels burst where skin was stretching. They look even more attractive. lol

    I am checking for these everyday at the moment, I'm sure I'm about to get them as my skin is so tight but none that I can see yet...

    Aw, get the oil on, it should help reduce the appearance.

    I haven't got any yet, I check every day when I oil up my bump. I have become quite disciplined in my daily moisturising routine. I still reckon I'll get some though cos I already have them.

    I couldn't even see this one unless lifted up bump or looked in mirror! Lol gonna use the bio oil on my scar which was left from my belly bar so hopefully it will help them both not look quite so noticeable! X

    Mine above my belly button started really small and then more and more appeared. I think I managed to get to about 37 weeks (I can't remember exactly) but I just don't think my skin can handle it anymore :(

    I have no stretch marks yet but have bruises on the tops of my legs and boobs very attractive !! I got a massive bottle of bio oil for christmas from my mother in law it's that big I can practically bath in the stuff so I am hoping that will ward off the dreaded stretch marks !

    i got really worried about this last night! I have been great and just excepting that its all part of being pregnant! But the last couple of days i have been feeling huge! and think i can slow down gaining weight (as its not all baby)! stupid for getting worried about this!

    how can i go from not caring about getting them to suddenly want to do everything to prevent it? Weird!

    I got my first two on my stomach a few days back, but already had a few on my hips. Haven't really been creaming myself or oiling as its inherited if you will get them or not, no amount of oil/cream stops them xx
