  • I rubbed cocoa butter on my belly & never got stretch marks. I did however, have a few on my hips (A nice tatoo covered those!) And a few on my breasts. Those seem to have faded- maybe it's just gravity! LOL! :)

  • I have them all across my mid section. I tried creams, vitamin e oil, etc. I am hoping a tummy tuck will eventually take care of them

  • I used lots of lotion during my pregnancy, stretches marks were very minimal, then faded after having the baby

  • im 17 weeks along and have been using Palmer's since i found out and so far have no stretch marks and my belly is huge; my friend used bio-oil during and after pregnancy and it worked wonders-more pricey than lotions, though
