    Aww hun they will fade.I'm lucky I have got none on my tummy and after 3 babies I'm proud of it!I got a few on my boobs though.I use Avon's skin so soft range.I don't know if this has helped but I'm strechie free. I have heard bio oil is good.After baba I will use strech mark replenisher by avon as it really helped clear up the boob ones last time.Just think of it as a little sign of your body giving you a amazing gift.Your baby. x

    I started with them on the bottom of my bump. Then they made their way to my hips, inner thighs and at the sides of my bum. I hated them at first but I've gotten used to them now. They fade eventually hun. Plus we got a bundle of joy from these markings. :)

    My stomach is gross and its never going to be the same. I have like 20 stretchmarks and they're really deep and gross. You just have to deal with them. I drowned myself in bio oil and 3 different moisturizers for months and they just kept coming.
