They are hereditary. You can try coco butter to lighten them up but sometimes they're inevitable. You're 11 weeks, stretch marks should be the LEAST of your worries. Congratulations

I've always used palmers cocoa butter stretch mark lotion. However I've heard they're genetic and if you're predisposed to get them you'll get them. Doesn't hurt to be proactive with the lotion though.

Have your man ejaculate on you, then rub it in. Good for your skin

Slather your entire belly in Vaseline, then wrap yourself in saran wrap and sleep like that. Once a week.

No joke. I started at 95lbs and grew twins lol. Not one stretch mark.

Vitamin E cream?

I was about your weight when I was pregnant (times three!) and I don't have any stretch marks.  I gained 25 - 30 pounds per pregnancy.

A neighbour I used to know has horrific dark angry red stretch marks that look as if they will never go away - I don't know how that happened.

Maybe you should consult your ob/gyn or a dermatologist about this.
