I'm not right now but I did my entire pregnancy with dd and I only got 1 stretch mark. Definitely time to buy more.

I did every day twice a day my whole pregnancy and I still got hella stretch marks. I was a size 3-4 and my ds was 8.14 and a half pounds so it was probably nothing I could do. It does smell good and keep the belly moisturized lol

Not to bust anyone's bubble but creams don't determine whether or not you get stretch marks. Its all about your skins elasticity. However I get itchy skin when I'm pregnant and they work great for that. LOL.

This. But using lotion is good for your skin regardless. And stretch marks are not the end of the world. I get really big and go straight out when I'm pregnant, and my short waisted body gets reeeaally stretched out. ;-) Think of them as Mama Beauty Marks!

 I did with my first son and it didn't prevent strech marks, but mine were much lighter than some others I have seen.

I am not using anything right now but once I do get pregnant I will start. I think I will be using a cream and scrub made by a company called Spoiled Mama. The Palmer's butter has a lot of ingredients in it that isnt natural. I just need to find a site that sales the Spoiled Mama at a good price because its very pricey.

Stretch marks are like cellulite. Some women get them, some don't. It's more genetic than anything else.

I used BIO oil on my tummy twice daily and got zero stretch marks. I understand all these mamas are saying its a heriditary thing, but I HAVE stretch marks all over my legs and tummy so i know I get stretch marks. I absolutly 100% beleive that if i did not use the BIO oil, that i would have gotten stretch marks on my tummy too.
