Patient :Is there any way for a Dr. to predict if someone will get stretch marks during pregnancy? I have some on my hips from puberty and scar quite easily. My skin tone is medium-light and the stretch marks I do have are white. My mother said she only got them on her hips during pregnancy, no where else. From what I've read cream and lotions really can't prevent them if you're prone to get them. Not sure if it matters but I'm 30, very fit and this would be my first pregnancy.
