In brief: Third trimester

Generally, stretch marks will occur after a pregnant mom begins to really show.
They occur more commonly later in pregnancy.

In brief: Depends

Some women do not get stretch marks.
It seems to be determined by genetic predisposition. Generally they start to develop after about 7 months.
