When do you get stretch marks?

Q: When will I see stretch marks?

A: Not everyone gets stretch marks during pregnancy. Stretch marks happen as a result of rapid weight gain in a certain area.  Stretch marks can happen on the belly, breasts, thighs, arms, and buttocks.  The best defense you have against developing stretch marks is by controlling your weight gain during pregnancy and only gaining the recommended amount based on your pre-pregnancy weight.
