While pregnant with number 2 I got stretch marks pretty bad. Do any of you mommas know anything to use/do to get rid of them?

I think its pretty genetic unfortunately. My mom's stretch marks are almost totally gone so I am hoping she passed that trait down to me!

I do use witch hazel because I heard its good for scars, but who knows if its really working.

they say cocoa butter, shae butter and thick creamy lotions.. however, i have noticed some are fake, so i never tried it.. I have seen some good results doing the it works wraps I guess.  I looked at it and they have a cream that takes scars away. I don't know, didn't dive in, maybe you'd like to take a peek?

They are yours to keep forever :) The dark color will fade with time, but will not go away.

They have all these things that are suppose to worlk, but really strentch marks are stubborn but they fade in time. Kinda sucks but hey, whatever. Mine are easliy an inch wide and some of the smaller ones are fading and the big ones are purple -_-" I hear weight loss helps to... I'll let you know on that one when I figure it out myself lol!

I don't think there is any one thing that works for everyone, and unfortunately, most things won't work. Some may help. Bioil (found at Walgreens and Target) some swear by, it didn't work for me but does hydrate your skin nicely.mi also have done It Works wraps and defining gel and have some improvement, but they are not gone! A friend I knew in college used the defining gel, 13 years after having twins and her stretch marks are pretty much gone now! I have her pictures on my profile page if you want to look. If there was a "magic cream" that worked for everyone, no one would be sporting any stretch marks!
