Quick question for you all; what body oil or moisturiser are you using to try to prevent stretch marks? I know some people say that you'll get them anyway but I'd like to do my best to prevent them. My eczema was pretty much under control before I got PG but it's really kicked off since I got my BFP and I'm alot more sensitive than I was. I tried Bio Oil which brought me out in hives all over my tummy. I tried ESPA body oil too (the one they say is safe for PG women) but same thing as the Bio Oil. Any suggestions? :wv

Oh great idea borntobeamammy (what a sweet name); i've burst vitamin e capsules on my lips and eyes before when they've been really dry and i didnt react to them so I'll pick some up. And it's not expensive too, brilliant!
