@SoontobeMrsAM:  I love Palmers cocoa butter- morning and night. It’s keeps tummy moisturized so it’s not itchy. If my skin gets dry, it’s super itchy:(

@SoontobeMrsAM:  I’m using Spoiled Mama brand Tummy Butter and Bump Gloss.  I’m only 19 weeks so I can’t say for myself whether they work, but they get RAVE reviews on the internet.  They’re expensive, but I’m treating myself because I know I am stretch mark prone (got them in puberty).  Both smell pretty good and I enjoy using them so far.

@SoontobeMrsAM:  Forgot to mention, I’m only using it in the morning so far, but when I start getting bigger, I’ll up it to twice a day and possibly three times like they recommend.

Josie Maran argan oil and balm. Love both products pregnant or not. 37 weeks and no stretch marks anywhere and I love the way the balm smells and it’s portable. I applied it to my belly, bust, sides, lower back and butt. Best wishes!

I used Belly B’s tummy butter. I was stretchmark free until 38 weeks. At that point, I started seeing some. My husband says they weren’t noticeable until 40 weeks. Unfortunately, I went until 41+2… Now I’m looking for remover.

I didn’t use it, but a ton of people I know swear by Mamma Mio

I know most people will say stretch marks are genetic and because of that, when I got pregnant, I was super worried. My mom ended up with tons of them and lots of loose skin. I had bought Palmers lotion, but found that the smell of it made me really nauseated. Instead I used plain vitamin E cream twice a day and ended up with no strech marks and my skin shrunk back to normal after a few weeks. Other factors I attribute to no stretch marks are not gaining a lot of weight, not using any soap on my belly, and drinking a lot of water.

@idoalterations:  I’m going to order this soon, thanks! Should I start using around 12 weeks?

@Evie19:  As soon as you want!  I started at around 16 weeks but the earlier the better I think.  Also, they are really vague about how to apply the bump gloss so I will tell you.  It’s best to do it right after you shower and before you even dry yourself off.  I just wipe the excess beads of water off my skin, then dry my hands (otherwise your finger will slip right off the nozzle and it’s really annoying).  The oil spreads a lot better with wet skin.  Then after I dry off, I apply the tummy butter over the bump gloss.  You will feel moisturized all day!

@idoalterations:  Thanks a lot! I didn’t have stretch mark cream on my must-buy list, but I’m realizing it is a necessary item. 🙂
