Now, I know that it’s not proven that stretch mark cream even works. But hey it’s worth a try right? 😉
I don’t think my mom has stretch marks on her belly but I have some near my knees already from a growth spurt so I hate them! So it’s worth a try for me. 😀
Do you use stretch mark cream and if so what kind?

I used coco butter and a handful of others with DS….
You shold ask grandma about her stretch marks… that’d probably give you a more accurate take genetically.
My mom doesn’t have ANY… they skipped her from my grandma and came to me =/
From what I’ve read good ol’ H2O is the BEST combator against stretch marks.. the best hydration for your skin comes from the inside.
I think I’ve also heard that applying your lotions when you just get out of the shower your skin is more “absorbant” to it or something like that.

My mom used sweet almond oil and swears by it; so I’m using the same thing just because if I don’t and I do end up with stretch marks, I will get blamed for it, lol!
Almost 7 months, and still no stretch marks… But I have to say, I also drink a LOT, exercise, keep my weight gain slow and steady and my bump is rather small so far.
So, sweet almond oil every night before going to bed, and some Vitamin E cream with I get out of the shower in the morning; combined with lots of water and (mostly)healthy food.

I used Palmer’s Tummy Butter..I started using it religiously when I got into my 3rd trimester, when I really started to get huge. I put it on everynight and just slept in a bra. It’s greasy and has a strong smell, but I have ZERO stretch marks!

My sister used vitamin E oil for her stretch marks, and it was the only thing that actually worked. You can often buy vials of vitamin E oil at your local natural foods store.

Hm. Vitamin E seems to be the common one. Definitely going to try that.
Thanks for the tip on where to buy it, I was wondering. 🙂
