  • I have heard that most fade after. I have some nasty ones from loosing a lot of weight when i was younger. I use Palmers coco butter. They have some for after preg. during and loosing weight. After a few weeks you see them fade a lot. and its cheap. I use it twice a day.

  • I didnt get any until 30-34 weeks then i got horrible deep ones! :-( ALL THROUGHOUT my pregnancy I spent so much money on products, and still got them! My son is now 8 months and you cant see them.. I can feel them with my hands but not visable.

  • mine did fade, but I always used a lotion, Mother's Friend I think it was... granted it didn't prevent them, it just helped them not get so dark and nasty!! I mainly have them on my butt, a little on my boobs, and after our 3rd, I finally got them on my belly, but I can hide them, so mine arent as bad as others.. but she was also the biggest too.. 8#1 oz
