  • I have more stretch marks than anyone I have ever known (besides my dear godsend of a mother who carried 2 6 lb babies [twins] to 35 weeks.) I started at 5'5 130lbs and ended up at 5'5 198.5 lbs. I have them on my stomach, my hips, my boobs, my thighs, MY CALVES....everywhere. I've just given up. DH told me they were "badges of honor" and that really touched me.

  • Don't hate me, but I didn't get any except on my boobs which are now non existent. So, if the ones on my boobs can disappear, over time, I'm sure yours will fade a lot. My friends son is 5 and hers were bad, purple almost keloidish. Now, they are thin white lines and barely noticeable. Give it time mamas. A lot of times women think they wont fade and stuff, because they have another child before the stretch marks fade as much as they can. Just give it time.

  • Hi, I used to have pretty bad stretch marks and red scars around my belly region ever since I gave birth to my three kids.I had tried Vitamin E oil and cocoa butter which a number of people had recommended but unfortunately it didn't seem to work too well. My Doctor had even suggested that I go for a Tummy Tuck. I then recently read an article about a lady who supposedly got rid of her stretch marks using a particular cream. I tried it and it worked really well. It took a number of weeks but my stretch marks soon faded away. You can read the lady's article at the link below.
