  • There is something called "Bee's Wax" and they have a whole selection spacifically for pregnant women that contains LOTS of vitamin E and works pretty well. You can find it at most maternity and baby care shops and stores.

    But honestly if your going to get stretch marks your going to get them and there isn't much you can do about it. They are mommy battle marks hon. All you can do is wear them proud and remind your child forever what he/she did to your body. JK. LOL

  • i would say pure shea butter, it come sin a stick. it worked for my mother in law. not the cocoa butter with shea but PURE shea butter. other than that u could try a natural vitamin e lotion preople use alot for tattoos. its not designed for tattoos its just a everyday lotion, so no harm to baby. :) GL. i was scared of stretch marks too, but unfortunatly i miscarried a week ago.... :(
