Women that are expecting have a lot to be excited about. As they are anticipating the arrival of their new baby they may be getting things organized and ready for their unborn. There are many things that need to be done before the new bundle of joy arrives; however, stressing over stretch marks shouldn’t be one of them. Stretch marks commonly occur on the skin of pregnant women because they experience a significant amount of growth throughout their entire pregnancy. Each month they may only get a little bit bigger, but by the end of a full-term pregnancy they have definitely stretched their belly skin farther than it ever has been stretched before.
