i have a couple of large bright red stretch marks on lower abdomen. is that a sign of pregnancy?

Stretch marks are usually a sign of stretched skin. But this doesn't usually happen in most pregnancies in the first trimester. First the stomach must grow before stretch marks will start to form.

the lower part is much bigger and i might be 12 weeks

Have you not taken a pregnancy test yet? I hope you are at least taking prenatal vitamines?!

I didn't get stretch marks until my last month of pregnancy. Unless you've already gained a remarkable amount of weight or your very thin? Everyone is different. Some people get stretch marks just from growing not necessarily pregnancy.

I noticed about a week ago that I had dark stretch marks, according to the doc that I originally went to, I'm about 9 weeks and I know that I shouldn't have stretch marks yet. They started out really light though and gradually got darker. I haven't gained a lot of weight, actually lost a pound or so. But I've noticed that my stomach is bigger, I don't know if I'm just bloated or what, but it's odd. But then again, everybody that I talk to thinks that I'm either having twins or I'm farther along than I think.

I was sick for a while and get really thin then as i got better i went back to my normal weight and because it was all so fast i have strech marks on my thighs and hips. It really depends on the person because everyone is different and everyone shows at different times. I wouldnt worry about them too much, its easier said then done i know but you cant do anything about them so you just have to live with them. There are oils that dull the colour but thats about it. Good luck!
