Just wondering what you are using for your stretch marks. I dont have any yet but would rather start using something before I do..
I'm gonna be blunt here...nothing really works. It's luck/genetics.
I used the Palmers range and they were lovely and smelled nice, also used Bio Oil twice a day. Got loads of stretch marks in the last few weeks (gutted is an understatement).
We're all earning our "tiger stripes"
like sassypants say i think most of it has to do with genetics... my mum never got a single stretch mark (six kids) and says she only moisturised every now and then..!!! I bought a big tub of cheapy aquaeous cream from the chemist and use that most days, also I got a cheapy stretchmark oil (not bio oil) and use that a couple of times a week... I'm at 36 weeks now and not a stretch mark yet (fingers crossed it stays that way)...
Not sure if it works or not but ill be doing the same again this time!
Not sure if it worked or not but I used bio oil every day on bump & boobs and had to stretch alot as was quiet big and not one thankfully
I'm 39 weeks now and I haven't any yet, I was using bio oil maybe 2 or 3 times a week but half the time I forget!
I've been having baths with lovely moisturising stuff in them though. There's a boots botanics bath foam thing in a tub with honey and something and it's lovely!
I think some people just get them and some don't unfortunately. My bump doesn't feel too stretched yet though (I've probably jinxed myself now and will get loads!)
I agree with sassypants, if your gonna get them you'll get them regardless of what you use. I used EVERYTHING, cocoa butter, bio oil, baby oil, tropicana body butter.... You name it I slathered it on in buckloads, dh in his attempt to cheer me up on bad stetch Mark days, said I was like a superhero with my 'belly of fire' that'll tell you how bad they were. They've faded now to silvery wobbly lines but I dread what I'll end up like after this one.
Of course though like everyone, I'll use everything again and am already in the hope of minimising it all
Agree with [b:l98ti6fc]Sassypants[/b:l98ti6fc]. I have loads of stretch marks from puberty and slathered my bump in Bio Oil twice a day. Now, I still got them but not as bad as I thought they would be. I also followed a good diet and drank plenty of water.

I also think its luck. I never got one, even though I have them on my thighs. My mum also never got any. I used biooil from the time I found out I was pregnant because my skin is very dry anyway, but I don't think it would have been preventative.
