    aw :hugs:

    I've been exfoliating well in the shower, then while still wet, putting baby oil w/ vitamin E all over and rubbing that in, then drying off and putting cocoa butter all over areas I think I'll get stretch marks. Hoping that'll be sufficient to ward them off!

    Start slathering on the Cocoa Butter "Anti Stretchmark Cream" and/or "Bio Oil" twice a day ASAP!!!

    I am prone to stretch marks and have been slathering this stuff on since BFP (3w 6d)! The earlier you start, the more supple and resistent your skin will be - once you get to 26+ weeks, your skin is already stretched and thinned.

    Don't know if it will work, but HAS to be worth a try... as a side effect, gives you lovely soft and nice smelling skin... :thumbup:

    im a huge fan of the bio oil and using a baby oil gel wash thingy in the bath, as well as rubbing in bottle after bottle of body lotion..."boobs, bump and bum!!" as my mother keeps saying..."and dont forget the sides!!!" lol
