Nobody wants pregnancy stretch marks, but unfortunately up to 70% off all women can get them. The degree to which you get stretch marks can vary on many things, including genetics, how much weight you gain and how fast, and how moisturized you keep your skin.
Stretch marks are little tears that occur in the dermis, the layer of your skin that contains elastin fibers and collagen, which help maintain the skin’s structural integrity. Hormonal changes in pregnancy make your skin less resilient and more prone to tearing, especially because you gain so much weight quickly. These increased hormones can affect the dermis’ ability to form collagen and elastic fibers, which can make it harder for your skin to stretch and it can tear (stretch marks).
Some women are more prone to stretch marks than others, due to a genetic factor. If your mom or sister had stretch marks, it’s likely that you’ll end up getting them to.
