Oh, yes, I know we're all looking forward to stretchmarks. I've been using an oil on my breasts and belly every morning after I get out of the shower for the past few months. I have a feeling I'll get them no matter what, though. I tend to get stretchmarks from even the slightest weight gain.
I'm curious if any of you ladies have or have had a navel piercing. I am going to have to take mine out because it's starting to get red and irritated from my skin stretching and constantly getting rubbed by my maternity jeans. It's a bummer because I got this 20 years ago and have never once taken the ring out. It's just too uncomfortable not to. I read somewhere online (I forget where) that if you take out a navel piercing, you'll get these crazy stretchmarks around your navel. This person also said that if you put something temporary in there (I guess you can buy some kind of stretchy something or other to put in there while pregnant) that won't happen. Now I'm torn as to whether I want to bother trying to find something to put in there or just take it out and let it do what it will. I highly doubt it'll close up seeing as it's been so long, so I'm not worried about that, just worried about getting some kind of weird stretchmarks.
