I am almost 13 weeks prego and I am starting to have a little belly now...people who know I am prego can notice but others just think I have gained a few pounds or something. I am very pet_te 5'1 110lbs right now and wanted to know when is the best time to start applying stretch mark creams?? Any advice would be great. Thanks!!

Don't get your hopes up about this stuff - I've heard these applying creams don't mean you'll avoid getting them. If your mom had 'em, you're prone to them too. Also, if you gain a lot of weight too quickly, you can get them that way too. So try to pace yourself with the weight. I, personally, use a regular moisturizer every single morning (don't forget the belly, hips, b___t and nipples/b___bs!), but there's not much else you can do about it. Good luck!

Oh, I didn't even answer your question! There's nothing wrong with applying lotion now. I'm 24 weeks but have been applying it to those special areas since I found out I was pregnant. It can't hurt!

I have also been applying creams and oils since I found out I was PG. I am currently 27 weeks and only have a few minor stretchmarks on the bottom of my b___bs. Stretchmarks run in my family, but I swore to myself that I would do as much as I could to minimize the severity of them. I'm not sure they can be prevented, but moisturized skin will stretch a lot better than dry, so I just keep it up!

I've been puting lotion on since I found out I was prego. This is #2 for me, luckily I didn't get any stretch marks with my son, so hopefully I won't this time!

GL on not getting any stretch marks! I believe it just really depends on the elasticity of your skin. If your mom,aunts,sisters have them you probably will too. I have 3 kids and with my first I literally had 2 stretch marks, I thought "I' m so lucky" well with #2 I got a few more and with #3 I got a few more.

Oh and I forgot to mention.. a cream is better than a lotion. A friend of mine used cactus on her belly and she has 3 kids and NO stretch marks. I don't know if she was just one of the luck ones or if it really works.
