Does stretch marks appear during pregnancy, if so how do you get rid of them or just prevent them from even happening! Did you get them? Did they go away? Did they stay?

I was told that cocoa butter doesn't work.

Stretch marks are genetic. If your mom had them you probably will. Nothing really prevents them. They do fade over time.

My dads a dermatologist.  They are usually genetic.  But if you eat a healthy diet with lots of healthy fats it helps! I got them but they are fading a lot now at 6 mo pp.  Eat healthy fats WITH your veggies, like butter on green beans, because vitamins A, D, E and K are fat soluable, meaning they need fat to be properly absorbed.  Also try coconut oil!

I used coco butter with my first and this pregnancy and don't have any.

But it's all about your genetics anyways

They are pretty much gentic. Eat healthy and drink water. Nothing you can do to much to not get them. Just keep them lotion up to help with itchiness. But that always doesn't take that away either.

My first I barely got any with the way I carried her and did not get any till the last two weeks and far down. My second I carried much higher and got big fast. So I got a bunch on my belly up higher. Then my third I was bigger but only got a few more that I noticed. I am luck that even though I got them. They were not that noticeable.

Some get red ones and they fade or don't fade. Everyone is different.
