With my first pregnancy a used a lotion with coco butter in it. It didn't work because I was covered in stretch marks. While I was pregnant I hated them, and this may sound weird, but once I lost Clyde I really appreciated the stretch marks and didn't mind having them at all. Within 3 months pp they faded and became clear in color.

I'm not using anything now to prevent them. I occasionally put lotion on my stomach but it's not to prevent anything, it's to moisturize and smell pretty. I do have some stretchies that are starting to turn pink/red again and I'm sure I will get loads more but I'm not worried about it. I'm one of those weird women who now appreciates her stripes. No I don't show them off and flaunt them around in belly shirts and tube tops, but I wear them with pride.
