How can I get rid of these ugly things?

I'm 16 years old and 19 weeks pregnant with my first. For a little over a year now, I've had horrible stretch marks all over my stomach, sides, and inner thighs. They are a bright red color and look like a cat has scratched me.
I hate to even look at myself in the mirror and I'm scared that they will get even worth throughout my pregnancy. Is there any possible way to get rid of them? I've tried various creams and nothing has worked whatsoever.

  • If you've tried creams with coco butter, then I can't think of anything else to suggest to you. That's what I used. Just want you to know that it's VERY hereditary! If your mother got them, you are almost 100% likely to get suck's, but if you can't afford a plastic surgeon to remove them..then your stuck with them. They do fade over time.
