They were in spots that were always itchy or felt sore during my pregnancy and I always have issues with my stretchmarks feeling weird when I'm pregnant. After my 3rd child I lost huge amounts of weight. And I mean HUGE, over 100lbs (50kgs) and after that, all of them were just lil white lines on my body. You couldn't really see them that well. Cept the ones on my boobs from the breastmilk... I'm only big chested when feeding lol, so I'll always have those I think.

RobinG - 2568 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) You dont get them from loosing wieght, they are there already from the skin stretching but they arent noticable until you loose weight and the marks show up then ~ Not all stretchmarks are seen til after delivery sadly (())

umich0730 - 2568 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) Unfortunately yes. When I was pregnant with my son I did not have one stretch mark and after I gave birth I had all sorts of new stretch marks on my inner thighs and low back. I was kind of mad because I tried so hard to avoid them and no matter what I did they appeared. Now I am pregnant agin with my second and they are appearing on my stomach, I am definitely not happy about that (so much for coco butter).

vickiessecret - 2568 days ago Rating: 0 (0 votes) Yes, I know several people that didn't have one stretchmark their whole pregnancy, and after delivery they just appeared. From your uterus shrinking back, and everything trying to go back to normal. You also get stretchmarks if you lose weight really's weird but it happens.
