Hi I think I was about 22 weeks, note got any new ones, had some from being big a few years ago. Went from a size 18/20 to a 10 so was to be expected. These just seem to have got a bit longer.
If you are gonna get them don't think there is much u can do about it apart from moisturise to help with the itching.

hi im 22 weeks today and dont have any. you can use something to keep the skin supple but i dont think anything acctually stops them, its all down to the elasticity and collegen in your skin. youl either get them or you wont
fingers crossed for us all

I got my first one at around 26 weeks. And they have got a lot worse since. The bottom of my bump is covered in them, it looks like a pattern as they're symmetrical on both sides! I've also got them on my hips.
I find it slightly unfair as 1. I was using cocoa butter, 2. My mum never had any in 2 pregnancies, and 3. It's not like I've piled on loads of weight, just a 1 1/2 stone.
Ah well I'm not that fussed really, they can be a nice reminder of baby. I had some on my thighs that I have had since puberty though and they haven't ever faded. So not sure mine will fade. xxxx

They say its genetic if you will get them. I havent got any so far (im 25 weeks) but i did get a few with my first so im sure they will pop up pretty soon! my oh calls them mummy marks which i think is really cute. They fade with time anyway, you could hardly see mine until my skin started to stretch again and i only had my son 19 months ago. just keep up with you skin care.

Trying to conceive with PCOS.
Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place. I’m new to this so bare with me 🙈. Background - I was diagnosed with PCOS a little over a year ago and have been trying to conceive for just over 2 years. I have been to fertility appointments who haven’t found any additional problems (e.g. hcg scan came back clear) and my partners tests were all ok. I understand weight is a big factor with PCOS and I have lost 10% of my body weight as recommended and keep trying to loose more. The more time goes on the more deflated and useless I feel. Each time I get excited thinking it might be my time then I get a false test 🤦♀️ The fertility appointments are far apart and the months in between each one just seem longer and longer. I was was wondering if anyone had been through similar experiences and have any advice? I have also read online that ovulation sticks don’t always work for women with PCOS. Anyone have any advice on this? Thank you for taking the time to read this. x
