    Most of my stretchmarks - and there are a lot - are underneath my bump (and currently itch-tastic). The skin underneath feels really bobbly though. I wondered if anyone elses feels the same or if it's just me?

    I think it's going to look horrendous once lo is here. Like dimply skin. I wouldn't change a thing of course, he's worth a million stretchmarks, but they are so so bad now. I can't quite believe how bad they are.

    Mine are really shiny ones at the top of my belly button :( I think they look like burn scars :'( I dread to think what they will look like if I get a tanned belly at any time :(

    Aw, :hug:

    They will fade hun, and the bio oil stuff is meant to be good to improve your skin afterwards. xxx

    I am waiting anxiously for these to appear on me. They are coming without a doubt.

    I've got stretchmarks, but not any that hurt or itch. I get VERY uncomfortable when sitting on certain seats or wearing certain clothes though, it's unbearable and I keep fidgeting constantly and scratching my bum! I could cry sometimes, don't know what causes that?

    Yes Olive they can feel a bit bobbly and weird like theres little tiny knots in there, don't ask me what it is. But as someone who had her last LO nearly 10 years ago I can honestly say they do fade and feel smooth again, more than you ever think they will.

    I've got the bobbly skin thing under bump. Showed my MW who advised it was edema. So not a rash at all.

    My sister has 4 kids as well and you can barely see them now (she had a lot of stretch marks) - so they really fade away a lot! Don't worry!;)

    :hugs:
