also commenting to follow 🙂 I got some on my boobs from puberty (going from a B cup to a D cup in 2 months!), but they’ve faded with time and are barely noticeable now. My mum got bad stretch marks with 2 kids as well, so I know I’m in for it. 🙁

Did anyone get stretch marks during puberty and NOT get them all over your tummy during pregnancy?  I grew SUPER fast when I was going through puberty and got stretch marks on my hips, inner thighs, and some on my butt even though I have never in my life been overweight or chunky at all.  I guess I’m not even sure if my mom got stretch marks, she had 4 singletons and 1 set of twins via c-section, so her tummy is definitely altered from all of us kids. I am assuming that since I got them in puberty I will probably get them during pregnancy…so far I have none, though (almost 23 weeks). I have only been putting on the palmer’s stuff in a tube after every shower.  Ehh, oh well I guess. Worth it 🙂

FYI….. If you do get stretch marks, it’s usually 3rd trimester, the last couple of months. =) so you won’t know until the end!

@cowgirlace:  I have stretch marks on my boobs, hips, and thighs from going through puberty.  I didn’t get any anywhere on my body during my pregnancy, and I gained 40 pounds.

@blondy Yay….hope… what creams/lotions did you use?

I heard pure all natural coconut oil is supposed to work really well also bio-oil.

@cali_cat:  Yes, there is a laser that will help reduce stretch marks but for some it is cost prohibitive. You need around 3 treatments at approx. $500 each treatment -and- the procedure must be done while they are still red/purple. If you wait until they turn white you will likely be unhappy with your results.

I was just using regular hemps lotion and I still got them so I started using Palmers stretch mark lotion and Palmer’s version of BioOil and my skin feels far more hydrated, but my mom had tons of stretch marks and I have such a short torso, I’m sure that I will continue to get stretch marks. I’m going to keep using it after baby is born though, because I’ve heard good things about those things helping heal the stretch marks after birth.
