It took me lik 3 moths to realize i was preggo because my period as always changing. Anyways I didn't have stretch marks until bout 8 months into the pregnancy. I used palmers lotion thinking it would help....than BAM at nine months it was like over night i have horrible strechmarks. I can not get them to go away. Plus the baby weight it kinda didn't make things any better. I went from a size 4/5 to 10 gained like 35lbs. Now i can fit back into my jeans but are too tight so i am like a size 7 idk what to do but just deal with it. anyone have same problem? Plus i had an emergency c-section and my belly kinda bulges outward on the bottom and idk how to tighten that?
