By : Baby Destination Editor

The news of my pregnancy evoked a plethora of emotions in me and I could hardly wait for those nine months to pass. In the middle of the second trimester, my skin started to stretch to make room for the growing baby. As soon as the third trimester started, my breasts started getting heavier! I knew that one side effect of all these changes would be stretch marks on belly, breasts and thighs. I wanted to use an effective stretch marks cream which would not have any side effects on my skin or on my baby.

It can be very harmful to the development of the baby inside the womb! I researched a lot about the appearance of stretch marks and found the following facts:

  1. Where do stretch marks usually appear – An average woman gains around 30 pounds during her pregnancy and such rapid growth causes reddish or whitish stretch marks on the stomach and breasts. Other areas like upper arms, thighs, and hips also bear the brunt of stretch marks.
  2. When do stretch marks appear – Research has shown that approx. 90% of pregnant women get stretch marks in the later part of second trimester or third trimester
  3. Genetics –If your mother had stretch marks, then you have greater odds of having them too.
  4. Stretch marks vary with your complexion – Women with darker complexion tend to develop light-colored stretch marks whereas women with lighter complexion develop pinkish marks.
Although stretch marks are bound to appear during pregnancy and weight gain, Taking Proper care from the second trimester onwards can definitely prevent stretch marks from appearing.
