For Mommies: Did you get stretch marks? Have you found anything that helps with the stretch marks other than time?

for Pregnant Ladies: Have you gotten stretch marks? Are you using anything to help or to try to prevent them?

I used Bio Oil during both of my pregnancies and I swear it works great. I didn't get stretch marks with either of my pregnancies. My mother has them really bad so I just knew that I would get them but somehow I didn't.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I got stretch marks with both pregnancies, the first one with Ethan I only got a few way down low under the panty line and around my hips. None on my belly at all. I didn't do anything to prevent them either pregnancy. This time around Kody decided he needed to make his own mark so I have some stretch marks on my lower belly. Too bad he couldn't have just used his big brother's ones! lol.

I have them pretty much everywhere. Hips, belly, inside my belly button, bikini line... I'm pretty sure I have some right above my booty on my lower back. I'm not really worried about it this pregnancy... I don't see how it could get any worse. I still use cocoa butter lotion, but it did nothing for me to help with stretch marks.

I don't really think anything works/helps other than to relieve itching, but that is just my opinion.

That being said, I used the Jergen's stuff (can't recall what it was called) with Reagan and I only got 1 very unnoticeable stretch mark under my belly button. Addy was a much bigger baby, she stretched me so badly there was no hope. My belly is covered in stretch marks and my skin is much looser, working on trying to tighten it back up. The marks have gotten a little less noticeable, but you can still see them.

I could try and blame the marks on my boobs on the girls, but those were there when I developed as a teen because I didn't have them at night and woke up one morning with "D" cups...lol!
