The appearance of stretch marks from pregnancy are due to a number of factors – genetics, weight gain, and many more. Some moms say that stretch marks appeared on their last few weeks of pregnancy. Though there is no guarantee to avoid stretch marks, just do your best in trying to prevent them. You’ve got nothing to lose.
