  • Stretch marks are for the most part heredity. If you get them, no cream or whatever will work. They will just fade. And if your lucky your light skinned and they will not show too much!

  • The best thing to do for streach marks is to try to gain weight slowly- but streach marks are for the most part hereditary. Finding a cream that helps with itching is about the best you will be able to do. I used some bee cream. it was pricey but it lasted through my entire pregnancy (i still have 1/2 can left) Find something that smells good to you and isn't too oily.

  • Vitamin E oil is supposed to be the best. You can get it in the same area of the store that you get vitamins in.
