Pregnant women are beautiful. Bumps, lumps, hormonal pimples and all. It’s a miraculous time and a woman’s body is doing an incredible thing, growing life. However, with that growth can come the often-inevitable arrival of stretch marks. Try not to let these pregnant belly stretch marks affect your self-confidence.
When do stretch marks start in pregnancy?
Stretch marks usually appear around the end of the second trimester or as you start your third trimester. This is when your belly is rapidly expanding to accommodate your growing baby. You may notice stretch marks more as you continue to put on weight. For most pregnant women, stretch marks also appear on their bottom, hips, thighs, breasts or upper arms. But each pregnancy is different, and in some cases, they may appear earlier. The more your skin has to expand during pregnancy, the more quickly it happens.
