  • honey those stretch marks are nothing. you should see mine. but if you want to get rid of them or just make them less noticable then use coca butter and mineral oil.

  • They will lighten over time. They will never go away all the way. Mine were that bad and now they are smaller and more silvery but the reddness is gone. I love coconut oil. You can find it at the health food store. (it can be used for cooking but I just use it on my skin)

  • TIME. Not a real satisfactory answer, but it's the one that really works.

  • After you have the baby you can start working on them with some good lotions. They will fade to where they are no longer red and irritated. You won't notice them so much anymore. Those are VERY minimal stretch marks though! I was lucky to only have a few as well but my friends looked awful! Her also faded with time and some lotion!

  • I used Cocoa butter everyday twice a day and i still got stretch marks pretty bad. dont worry sweetie...after you have your baby they will start to fade. My daughter is only 6 months and i can notice a HUGE difference. i started to notice the fade about 3 months after. But i would look into something different because the cocoa butter does not work! not for me anyway. I dont think you can really prevent stretch marks. Im pretty sure its genetics but i could be wrong.
    Yours arnt even that bad anyway =)
