Stretch Marks with the 2nd pregnancy?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I got stretch marks with my first (lower belly) and I wanted to know from other's experience if they got more stretch marks with the 2nd pregnancy?

I know every pregnancy is different etc but I wasn't sure if my previous stretch marks would provide that extra room for growth so I wouldn't get more stretch marks.

I'm on my second pregnancy right now. (37 weeks) I had 2 stretch marks by each hip that I got with my first pregnancy, and this pregnancy they just seemed to stretch a little bit more. The marks had faded, but now on the top and bottom of the stretch marks, they are purple because they stretched more. I don't think I'm necessarily bigger this time around, just carrying a lot higher, so maybe that is why. With my first pregnancy I got most of my stretch marks on my boobs, and they haven't seemed to change at all! So who knows! Here's hoping yours don't stretch anymore!
