It's official, I already have my first pregnancy stretch marks. My boobs are swollen, an there were some new red lines on the top of them last night. I also have some new ones on my thighs. I don't quite get that.

I'm only 4w3d, you'd think it'd wait a little while longer...

That seems so Fast!!! I already have stretch marks, lucky me, so I wouldnt notice new ones anyway. I have a bunch from my miscarriage depression, lucky me.

I get PMDD, and my boobs swell a lot every month, so I often get new stretchmarks. I hadn't had any new ones for a few months thankfully, and yesterday I look down and there are some bright red ones.

I get used to them pretty quickly, and I fully expect to be covered in them by the time Squishy is born.

Well let me join in the stretch mark club. When I was PG with dd#1 I made it to 8 mos. without, and then all of a sudden stretch marks appeared everywhere: belly, thighs (inner and top), boobs. I'm only like 3 weeks PG now and already they seem to be darkened. Sigh! Oh well, at least we get wonderful babes out of this!

Ditto here as well. I'm hoping for no new ones I already look like a road map.

: My boobs are really just two large lumps of stretch marks.
