Stretch Mark Creams

I'm TTC & want to know what stretch mark creams worked best for everyone! I'm 4'10 & only 120 lbs so I'm nervous my stomach is going to stretch badly! I know this is part of having a child but I would like to salvage my skin as much as possible! Thanks Ladies (:

  • Like Sonia said, they're genetic. There's not much you can do about it. Try to keep your weight gain within the recommended levels.

  • Also stay hydrated. Lots of water. Make sure whatever lotion you use does not contain mineral oil. And as musicpisces said watch your weight gain. Which is easy to do if you eat healthy and exercise (of course exercise will depend on what the dr says :)

  • Ask your mother if she had them, if she did there really is nothing you can do about them. They fade with time, and once you have a kiddo.. you don't care about your looks anymore LOL I sit her in sweat pants, an old tshirt and some crazy bun up on my head. But lotion wouldn't hurt. Look down the lotion isle at your store and there is pregnancy lotion creams.
