Burt's Bee's Mama Butter

I am 32 weeks pregnant, and for the first 30 weeks of my pregnancy I used Shea's Cocoa Butter for stretchmarks. After I ran out of my third bottle of that (lol) I decided to get the mama butter, because it was reccomended by a friend.

It's been two weeks, and I have gotten stretch marks in that short amount of time. Did anyone else have this problem with Mama Butter, or is this just what happens since I'm 8 months.

There going to happen no matter what you do but I did use the belly butter and it did help keep my skin moisturized so the stretch marks were not as bad but they still happened. First baby?

No creme works against stretch marks. If you are going to get them, you'll get them, you can't prevent them. Sorry.

Stretch marks are going to happen for most women. Chances are good if your mom had them, you will too.

Okay, that's good to hear. I was worried because it was not as thick as the cocoa butter. & yes it is! Can you tell :P

Yep I thought it might be your first :) but your going to get them regardless but just keep putting the lotion on it will help keep your skin moisturized the marks will fade with time but won't go away completely.
