What is a good way to get rid of stretch marks? I have palmers lotion to prevent them during pregnancy but have only been putting it on my belly and boobs and woke up this morning with my legs and butt looking like a tiger got ahold of me! I just wanna cry it looks awful ::(

Nothing. I've heard Mederma is good at reducing them, but they never truly go away. They do fade over time. Part of being a mom :)

Mederma is great! I used it on my stomach after I had my daughter, and although they're not totally gone, they faded so much faster than they would have if I didn't use anything. At this point, you can only see them in the right light, or if you're really looking for them. Hooray!

Same! It's like 40 a bottle but it lasts like 3 months and it works great!!!

That's great! I may have to look into it then once this baby gets here!

Stretch marks are actually scars. They'll fade but you can use a product to speed up the process.

It's totally worth every penny. I ended up using it for the recommended 12 weeks (so, about $120 spent, total), but in the broad scheme of things, it was a heck of a lot cheaper, and safer, than surgery.

It's about $40 per tube, and you can find it at target. As long as you're diligent with using it, it's pretty much a miracle :)

You'll get used to them, and they will fade. It is hard at first though, I know.

Nothing will make them go away completely. Mederma will fade them, but they'll always be there.
