Hi ladies, For any of you who were lucky enough to avoid getting stretchmarks on your first child (like me), I just wondered if you got them on your tummy on your second pregnancy? I have a 2.5 year old and managed to fluke not getting any stretchmarks but as I feel my tummy stretching a lot, I'm wondering if I will get them this time? I'm hoping I won't but wanted to see if you ladies had any experiences? thanks sue

Good news i got none on either of my two! I thought maybe the second time but no!! Was delighted. Praying for the same this time but as i'm 3 years older i'm probably clutching at straws!

I got a tiny one first time under my belly button but it had faded after a few months, got none this time even though I felt my belly was really stretched towards the end. I drank lots of water and moisterised everyday which I think helped.

I got none at all first time. I used a bit of bio oil every so often but didn't use it religiously! Second time I used lots of palmers stretch mark body butter (think that's what it's called!) and bio oil every day and I was doing really well, not a stretch mark in sight until 5 days before my due date, a little one appeared just above my belly button. Thankfully LO arrived a day later as was getting seriously worked up over my one little stretch mark, it's still there, just faded a bit!
