Again, a sidenote, but cocoa butter is actually to help reduce the appearance of stretchmarks after you get them. So many products are underhandedly advertised to prevent stretchmarks, but it has been shown time and time again that NOTHING will stop the stretchmarks except not gaining the weight in the first place. And since there is a growing baby in there, you can’t help that. So just try to treat yourself right as best you can, and much of the trauma your body goes through will either fade or go away. Only in extreme cases do you have to worry about crazy tummy.
(PS-Did y’all see Kate Gosselin on the cover of People this week? My only thoughts were: “Airbrushed/photoshopped, and SURGERY!”)
