  • I thought I was in the clear too, then they showed up about 2 weeks before I delivered. Mine aren't that bad, though. My step-sister on the other hand looks like Freddy Krueger got a hold of her. Poor thing:(

  • I am 34wks pregnant now and realized about 5wks ago they had started to appear and every since then they have gotten worse and worse. =( Lol. So I am probably in the category of the lady above me, her step-sister... attacked by Freddy. And cocoa butter and so forth, I wasted my money on the Palmer's Massage Cream for Stretch Marks, it's done nothingggg butt seem to make them a little worse. And I use twice a day as recommended!

  • Well, I thought I was in the clear and all of a sudden I got them at 9 months. This is my first and it got soo bad at first I kept scratching and scratching and YES, I PUT ON A SHIIIIIIIT LOAD of Palmers Stretch Mark cream and even kept my stomach a lil oiled so it would "stretch" without pulling my skin but that damn sh#t will appear on their own whether you buy all the creams in the world. Mine are semi-bad like Freddy Krueger Jr got a hold of me. I just don't want that nasty saggy skin. I enjoy wearing two-pieces and am gonna work the sh#t out of my stomach afterwards. I am NOT staying fat!

  • I'm at 23 weeks and I'm seeing the very beginings of them. i'm upping my water intake and putting lotion on more times a day but I know I'll have them no matter what, both my mom and sister from my mom had them really bad.
