  • Hmm I never heard of that before. Did you check with your gp?

  • Never personally checked! But it makes sense, everything stretches and moves so much!

  • Never thought to check but I suppose everything is stretched so it could be possible

  • I didn’t even think to look but it makes sense everything is stretching.

  • Personally no but have them everywhere else ha ha

  • Definitely not the only one! Best not to look????

  • Deffinatly not the only one. I also had a tattoo across my lower stomach.. thats now ruined haha

  • I have read all the comments and I think people might be confused as to which area you are referring too. I get the impression you are talking about on your cha cha. I know I had them on inner thighs, but I never really looked in that region before. At scarring yes but not specifically for that. If I could see my cha cha, I’d have a look and write another comment in case it helped but I can’t even see to “maintain the area” Regardless our bodies do extraordinary things when we are pregnant so even if you have marks down there, I wouldn’t worry. It’s an external thing, nothing to do with anything else and they should fade. I would also be super careful using any of the products mentioned in other comments if I am correct about the area in question

  • I have heard of Mum’s getting them in strange places. It’s odd but probably not as rare as we think it is.

  • I’ve not heard of them down there, but why not, I guess. They appear everywhere else.

  • I can’t see past my stomach so it’s not something I worry about.

  • Wow, I’ve never heard of that before.

  • Woah I didn’t know stretch marks there were a thing, but makes sense!

  • As you can see it’s very normal. Think stretch marks are easier to live with than emergency Caesar scars which usually mean you cannot wear a bikini anymore because of it.

  • You won’t be the only one and they will fade with time. Think of them as your pregnancy service stripes. You earned them. .
