I know doctors say you can't really prevent stretch marks, but I was wondering if anyone has tried anything they feel really has helped? I'm using the Palmers stuff right now, but have you used anything else? Sorry if this sounds like a vain question hehe.

im using shea b___ter, and my stomach stays moist and soft all day. i apply it twice a day. im almost 35 weeks and no marks on my stomach. I did get them on my b___st before i bought the cream, but the cream has made them really light.

Slow and steady weight gain should help

When I was pregnant with my son, I went from 118lbs to 164 and I didn't have one stretch mark. Several times a day I would rub vitamin E cream all over and once I stated getting really big I had my husband do it, especially on the areas most likely to get marks, like the tummy, bum, b___bs and thighs! Good luck!

I used Palmers and Loreal stretch mark prevention creams twice a day from week 4. Didn't get a mark until week 35 then WHAM covered from one side of my belly to the other. My doctor said you can try to use creams to soften your skin but you cannot stop them if your skin is inclined that way. However some lucky devils get away with out a single mark!! Unfair.

Use bug & pickles belly cream - available's the best!!!

some people swear it's genetics. My stepmom used Palmers her entire pregnancy but kept missing one spot towards her back and that is the ONLY place she got stretch marks. So according to her the lotion works... I also heard steady weight gain and keeping really hydrated.
