I use bio oil!

It worked really well on my stomach and boobs when I was pregnant with #1. I only got stretch marks on my butt and a couple on the inside of my thighs because I didn't think to put the bio oil there. So with #2 I've been using the bio oil on my thighs, butt, back, boobs and stomach since we started trying in January. lol

Nothing works, lol, so nothing. I'm apparently just prone to stretch marks. You either  get them or not.

With my first pregnancy I used Palmers cocoa butter, had no stretch marks anywhere I put it on except a few on my breasts.  What is Bio oil??

Nothing prevents them. If you're going to get them, you WILL get them.

I've tried everything, still got them with every pregnancy.  It's genetic.

I use Great Mother's Belly Butter. Worked great pregnancy #1. I wasn't as diligent this time and I have a couple stemming from my old belly button ring.

I'm so disappointed :(

here is a review comparing bio-oil and cocoa-butter, can someone make it clicky?

hudabeauty.com/2011/05/06/bio-oil-vs-cocoa-butter-what-one-really-battles-stretch-marks/

p.s. It's really not that hard to find, but the one time I had trouble finding it, I asked a store to order some for me and they kept it stocked for a good 6 months after that. I also do not go through it as fast as she does.

That's great because Bio-oil also fades existing stretch marks and scars! :) I love it!

I don't use anything. I read that nothing works, you'll get them if you get them, so I dont bother. I did use Palmer's for a bit with my first, but I dont know if it did anything. And I used some baby oil in the shower this time just to help with itching and keep my skin soft.

Anyways, I think I saw some stretch marks on me somewhere... but they are light and small enough that I dont even know where they are. I dont know if I could even find them.
