    Come on then who's got them? Or had them?

    How bad? How small? Have they faded?

    I look like a child has scribbled all over my belly. Its so embarrasing. I have tried all sorts of creams and nothings working. Im doomed. There bright red and swiggly. :(

    I have them and they're driving me mad......One of them (its a long one) is so itchy, its all bumpy now and sore. I scratch them in my sleep too! I use coco butter but they still itch......lucky they're not the worst I've seen and a couple have gone silver already - Fingers crossed they stay & go that way!

    I was told that rubbing olive oil on your tummy and thighs daily really helps, or even using olive butter (the topical kind) helps. Anyone heard of this before or found any truth in it?

    I put creams and oils on my bump twice a day (was actually a really nice job for DH to do on a night cos little ones would give him a kick when he did it :)) and ....​

    I don't have any stretch marks ...at all!
