Hey girlies!! just wondering if any of you already are getting stretch marks and if you know any way to help them? cause im only 26 weeks and ive already got quite a few biiiiig ones. And also, sorry if its too much information but does it hurt when u pee? cause sometimes when i do it feels like the baby is pushing really hard against whatevers down there..its really uncomfortable, anyone else experienced this?

Unfortunately stretch marks are mostly genetic. There isn't much you can do, if your going to get them your gonna get them no matter what. But you can help by keeping your skin moisturized, and that includes drinking plenty of water. I went to motherhood maternity store and bought a vitamin E stick. Its for dry lips and skin. I just put it on the stretch marks and it keeps them from being itchy and red. And I know what you mean about the peeing thing, I feel the pressure most when I'm getting up from going. Ah that joys of pregnancy!

No, but it seems as though I have a lot to look forward too, I'm going to have so much fun. I am huge for only being 14 weeks so I wouldn't be suprised if I get a ton od strech marks

I got my first stretchmark on my side at like 10 weeks. And a few weeks ago I found 2 on my belly..luckily they look more cute than grotesque..but I know I'm only gonna bigger so those cute little stretch marks wont be so cute in a couple of weeks.

It may be worth it, but it is still the biggest pain ever...I just hope I stick to small ones if I get them

HAHA, this sucks, but Im 34 weeks and 2 days, and I have them EVERYWHERE!!!! ON my sides (ALOT) on my b___sts, on my back, on my b___t....dont ask how they got there cuz I dont know...I havent even gained much weight, and Im getting them like crazy, I have one little tiny one on my belly so far...but I can only see it getting bigger as the baby drops YAYYY!!! Im told they fade alot though, and vaseline seems to be helping me from getting anymore....its nasty and gross and sticky...but its working better than any creme Ive used all pregnancy!!! Its werid how I have them all over....but not on my belly...odd buit Im okay with it! lol
