How do stretch marks occur?

Report as

Stretch marks could occur with weight gain and or pregnancy. If their going away, then they'll turn onto a whiter color and eventually go away.

It also happens when growing taller rapidly, or gaining a lot of muscle in a short period of time.

Stretch marks are usually the result of the rapid stretching of the skin that is associated with rapid growth or rapid loss of weight. Stretch marks are also a common side effect of obesity as well as pregnancy. Read more on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stretch_marks.

I read somewhere that the marks are actually scars, just under the skin. Has something to do with the collagen tearing & not repairing properly, after weight gain then weight loss. ( Pregnancy & dieting.)

Should it be a boy: Sebastian
Should it be a girl: Penelope or Leanza
Report as
I like Penelope! Sebastians okay. Leanza is kinda homely sounding. If I ever have a boy I'd name him Johnny or Derek, if it were a girl I'd name her Roxanne or Thursday.

dont worry my baby name twosense ticks off every pregnant lady ive ever met... i've been known to walk up to random pregnant women in walmart, "so what're you naming the baby?". I just gotta make sure no baby gets a terrible name if I have anything to say about it. Don't worry though it sounds like you have decent taste in names.

I really like Penelope though. I'm adding that to my cool names list.

Leanza was a name I found scrolling through the miss America!
Report as
miss america, like the beauty pageant? if you say so. I still think it's kinda homely though. If you took the e out and put it on the end, made it Lanzea, thatd be way better.
