Ok, when will this end? Last week, I had stretch marks all over my br___ts. Now, I discovered three more on my stomach. With every one, they are getting more and more saddening. ARGHHH. Someone, please say something positive!!!

They really do fade a lot after the baby's born . . . that's the best I can do :o) At least you don't have PUPPP, too--I got that @ 37 weeks, and that was the most miserable experience . . . I was covered in hives in less than a week (they start on your stretch marks) from my upper belly to my toes, and back up to my b___t. It could be worse, and the baby will be worth it all!

Yup, strechmarks will eventually fade. DO NOT scratch them though!!!! The new ones become very itchy and red, but if you scratch them, you'll make them worse and they'll become more visible afterwards. Do you use any lotion?? If not, you should. Always lotion your belly, b___bs, inside of your thighs, lower back and behind the knees with some goood moisturizer. I use a coca b___ter lotion, it has vitamine E and elastin in it. I believe that's the best stuff to use for stretch marks. It keeps your skin elastic like, so that when your body grows, your skin doesn't need to stretch so badly. It also helps to minimize the appearance of already there stretchmarks. You can never get rid of stretch marks, as they're scared tissue, but you can do something so they aren't so noticable. Good luck! PS - Moisturize these areas at least 2 times a day and ALWAYS after you get out of a bath or shower.
