eh, stretch marks are genetic mostly but I put eucerin healing cream on my stomach every day when I get out of the shower and I havent gotten them yet (this is my 2nd pregnancy).

 most women here will say that is genectic and nothing will can do .. i dont believe that!!! if u dont gain a ton of weigh and  keep your body and ur skin hydrated u can help prevent it! I use cocobutter, vitamin E and bio oils. I hope it works for u! Good luck!

I don't know if they really work but given my extra dry skin its definitely worth the try.. I'm preggers with baby #1 and I use it every night before bed. I did some research and went with Mama Mio, but anything that keeps ur skin hydrated should help. :/

Not really. It's all about skin elasticity. Which is 90% genetic.

Thanks everyone and as far as gaining weight I have lost 6 or 7 pounds since I found out I was pregnant. Which I don't understand because I eat when I get hungry

I always use Coconut oil, it actually penetrates (doesn't sit on top of your skin).  You can feed your skin from the inside, to help with elasticity.  Stretch marks can be prevented or at least minimized if you stick to a good regimine. you can't do it one day and not the next.

It's genetic. You will get them if you get them. Coco butter and lotions do help w/ some itching that you get from your skin being stretched but that is about it.....sorry.
