Stretch marks are genetic, so if your mother got them chances are you will as well. Many women swear by using lots of cocoa butter. Such as Palmers Cocoa Butter stretch mark lotion.
Amazon.com: Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion For Stretch Marks with Vitamin E and Shea Butter Women Body Lotion, 8.5 Ounce: Beauty
Unfortunately, I got stretch marks during my pregnancies even though I did use cocoa butter (I didn't use the exact product above). However, I have read many women's stories of how cocoa butter prevented their stretch marks!
