Stretch marks are not common - this is based from friends and family members, all who do not have them.

Yes, stretch marks are very common and most commonly occur in puberty for men and women.

To the OP, I got a few from my pregnancy. You can't really see them now.

I have almost no family or friends with black hair.

Due to this, I deem black hair to be uncommon.

I have lots of stretch marks in my lower abdominal region. I've had two kids, including a near 10 pounder. I also have loose skin and stuff after losing 60 lbs. Oh well, doesn't bother me. I am still going to rock the sexy bathing suits this year.

I never got loose abdominal skin after pregnancy. Some women do. There is no universal way bodies react.

You will have to have a tummy tuck to get rid of that excess skin. Unless you plan on having more children.....then you might as well wait. Your stretch marks present as sagging skin because your body fat content is so low.

Wow!! I've never seen stretch marks like that! It looks more like extra skin than stretch marks IMO.

I have had two children and gained quite a bit of weight with each pregnancy and then lost all of the weight soon after giving birth. I never had one stretch mark on my belly (or any extra skin flaps). I did get a couple stretch marks on my hips but they are so faint (just tiny white streaks) that you can hardly see them.

Those aren't stretch marks. I had 2 babies, and my belly never looked like that. If I had to guess, I'd say this is more likely for an older mom. Skin changes with age.

I guess it depends on your definition of "older" mom.

I had my first at 38 and will be having my second in two months at 40, and no issues with abdominal loose skin with my earlier pregnancy, nor abdominal stretch marks in either. Luck of the draw.

I had my babies at 27, 29, and 32, and that's exactly how my abs look. They were fairly large babies for someone of my proportions, so I'm sure that was a contributing factor.
