Stretch Marcks!! Rss

Hey Girls,

Just wondering what you all did to prevent stretch marks. There seems to be heaps of different theories out there but I would like to know what you are all using or used before.

Also if I use a cream of some sort when do you start using it. I am 9 weeks now and my belly hasn't started changing yet.

Thanks!

hey there!!

well im 27 weeks and no stretch marks as yet!! I have been using palmers cocoa butter but i think if im spose to get them i will!! 2 of my friends used it all the time and they both got stretch marks. People keep telling me u are either prone to them or ur not ... just wait and see i guess but i still use the cream anyway.
I was speaking to a girl at my work who said she had mega stretch marks and she showed me her belly and u would hardly even know she had them!! in another month or so they will be faded completely!! But then again i dont know if everyones the same when it comes to fading either!!! its too hard!! i just gotta hope i dont get em!!
hey anita

well my bub is 9months old now.
i used every cream possibly available and nothing prevented the stretch marks im sad to say
i guess it depends on the type of skin u have.
bio oil is very good to use, and it smells nice too smile

start using the creams now, doesn't necessarily have to be the most expensive etc etc.
i liked bio oil and palmers cocoa butter. there are lotsss out therhe.
but remeber if u do start getting stretch marks try not to let it upset you too much, as im sure u'll all agree ur little bubby's are well worth it.
goodluk with ur pregnancy.
