Hi Everyone, this is my first message as I registered today. I am 38 weeks pregnant and feeling terrible. My emotions are all over the place, high one minute and so depressed the next. I am told thats normal but try explaining that to a husband!! Anyway my main reason for posting a message is due to the depression I feel since stretckmarks have appeared on my tummy. I did have some that came on my hips at about 28 weeks (which have progressively worse) however I have never really been that bothered about them as much as I am now about the ones that have appeared on my tummy over the past two weeks. One minute I didnt have any and the next as soon as one apeared, that was it - there are on a mission of their own - total obliteration of the skin!!! I really could cry. Am I being over paranoid? My husband is sick of me saying things like - 'but I will never look the same' 'How can you fancy me with these'. He really says he isnt bothered but I just fail to believe that. I have become obsessed with looking at them just to see if more are appearing. I have 2 weeks left till DD and I am so scared that they will continue to get worse. Please someone tell me that what I am feeling is normal?
