  • They fade with time, I promise! And stretch marks are part of being a mommy for some women. I have them and you can't even see them. I can, but I look. My husband couldn't see them even the day after we got home from the hospital. Just remember they are there because you brought a beautiful baby in to this world.

  • Welcome to momma hood. I have a beauitful little girl. They will fade with time you can also go to wal-mart or target and get BIO-OIL it does work great I think i paid $12-$15 for the bottle.

  • I tried peeling it, moisturizing it with God knows what but it's still there. It did fade over time but mine are still stretch marks and loose skin. It had been stretched beyond belief...I've used all the expensive brands, the cheap brands but still nothing. Will be trying momnbabygirl009's tanning idea. I think that would be your best bet too.

  • Mederma for stretch marks is expensive BUT does drastically help reduce the appearance of them. I'm getting a tummy tuck later this year and plan on getting laser to reduce the appearance of them, too. If you can afford that, it's an option too.
