Where don't I have them? LOL! I have them on my tummy, butt, upper thighs and other unmentionables. They are so annoying. I am jealous of women who don't get them. Some say cocoa butter worked, others say it's just genetics. All I know is I don't like mine, but there are a lot worse things that can happen to me. I'll take stretch marks over being sick any day.

My wife used to have stretch marks and worried so much about them. To me it doesn't make any difference as we all change with various life events and we grow a little older each day. I used to say to my wife that she was worrying about her stretch marks and everybody else probably didn't even notice. If you can be happy with yourself exactly the way you are, life would be a lot easier. Be proud... :)

I think you should not worry too much about this ..just be normal as you were before ..but if you are have too much concerned about this talk to some plastic surgeon and i am sure he will make your body as it was before and you can start wearing sexy biknis and please tell me which beach you will be going to..hahahah

I have stretch marks too and they look really ugly :( I have it on my buttocks, my back and even under my arms. I try to use lotions but it still won't fade away. I guess have to accept that.

Right now I have them so bad it isn't funny. The baby sits on my right side all the time and thats where most of my stretch marks are the worse. I don't know how in the world I can stretch anymore but I still have 5 weeks left so I guess I will be seeing more stretch marks soon. I also have them on my upper legs.

I also have a few stretch marks on my stomach from my kids, but they mostly faded away. You can use vitamin E. It's very good. However to be honest I don't see why you should feel ashamed of them. YOu had a baby, your skin stretched .. you should wear them proudly instead of feeling bad about them. Truly, in most cases people don't even notice them, it's us that think that everyone can see them and are looking at them.

I have so many stretch marks that I could be used as a road map. The thing is though - it doesn't really bother me that badly. I wish they weren't there, but since they are, I don't worry about it. My children are so precious to me that I would count myself lucky to have them even with twiace as many marks (although I don't know where anymore would go). Just think of them as signs that your aby grew and developed and this is a small memory of that time.

I do have strech marks but not becasue of pregnancy ..!! Its is because of my unstable weight!! I gain and lose weight so fastly that I get strech marks..!! Hey you can do one thing..!!While bathing try scrubing your streched areas from the scruber or any thing which you use to clean your self during bathing..!! this can prevent it from further strech marks and may help in removing them too as this makes the skin flexible ..! otherwise you'll have to use antistrech marks creams..!! Have a nice day.

Hello cherriemae I have a lot of stretch marks too even though i never been pregnant, when i was 9 years old suddenly i become fat, and i got stretch mark on my upper thigh, butt and my hip, i try so many way to lose them but it never work, but exercise and give stretch mark cream is better way for me, and don't forget to drink a lot of water. Good luck and God bless you

I have been quite unlucky with stretch marks! I got lots of them as I was growing during puberty. Now I have three children I have gained loads more! My children refer to them as train tracks on my belly! I have them all across my stomach, down my hips, inside and outside of my thighs, the backs of my knees, the sides of my boobs. The only ones that got worse during pregnancy were the ones on my belly. They used to bother me but now I just think they're part of me and there's nothing I can do about them! The only problem I have with them is that they get itchy. I suffer from psioriasis and it seems worse were the stretchmarks are. Don't worry about them. If they are angry purple looking at the moment they do eventually fade.

I have stretch marks, Ive never felt negative about them, because they're not even major, I only have little ones and if did have big ones anyway, I would still feel the same, because these mark represent my beautiful children and these marks are only skin deep

I konw the feeling. I'm only 19 and I have stretch marks already. I have on my knees both left and right and under my butt cheeks. I hate it. But I still wear bikinis. Lol. I want to have it removed though. There's this center in Makati that offers stretchmarks removal or something. It's called Zunic. I'm going to ask how much though and what's the process cause it's no surgery.

I have stretch marks on my tummy not only from giving birth to both of my kids, but also from fluctuations in my weight. I have never been able to wear low waisted clothes, so I'm not worried about anyone else seeing them. But I wish I didn't have them just the same.

I have stretch marks every where but my stomach is awful. It looks like an accordion. But I am use to it now. I have scars from operations as well.

Hi cherriemae, hope all is well. Uggghhhh! Don't even get me started on those nasty things called stretch marks. I have a TON of stretch marks on my tummy since having my baby last June. I hate them too, I know exactly how you feel!

Oh goodness, I completely hear you! I can't stand them. I did pretty good when I had my first child, but my second took my body and, well, WOW! It will never be the same. I was stretched every way I think I could have been and trust me, you can see it...well, I can see it anyway. :) I just hope they fade a bit more.
