    So I'm going shopping tomorrow and was just wondering what everyone who has stretch marks uses in order to, not prevent them as such, but reduce them? I'm starting to get some on my boobs so I just want to try and reduce them as much as I can so I'm not all scarred after the LO gets here.

    Thanks xx

    well i got Bio-Oil, supposed to do the trick, but for me it hasnt, i have them on my belly, and quite alot too, i used it day and night and even put it in my baths, but it hasnt helped me, its all to do with your skins elasticity, if your skin is very elastic you wont get stretch marks but if it isnt (like mine) you most probably will get them, they say it really works and helps alot, but to be honest i found it hasnt worked at all and its all to do with the type of skin you have! but give it a go anyway as everyones different! :thumbup:

    i was using bio oil and didnt get a single stretch mark (maybe cuz that was earlier pregnancy)! its quite expensive tho.. so i switched to the much cheaper option - cocoa butter - but doesnt seem to work at all and now im riddled with them :( hope they dont come much more in a week!! but cocoa butter smells nice :) lol x

    cocoa butterrr :). try it after you showers and start it NOW otherr wise it wont work. Have to start it early before you start getting the bump Lol

    Hehe, I have heard that analogy before. A kid once said to me that the baby was drawing on mum's belly and saying hello.

    i tried the Cocoa Butter and it didn't work and also the BioOil works for me but it makes everything oily and slippery. slightly uncomfortable. but hey! it works. sort of.

    so many creams etc but i think if u are going to get stretchmarks u will get them. Just one of those things. i have them on my boobs, none on my tummy, but the other day i caught a glimpse of the back of my bum in the mirror as i was getting in the shower and i have stretch marks on my bum cheeks!!! :haha:

    I have them on my sides (Pre-pregnancy) all the way around to my lower back (NOT pre-pregnancy!) and recently started getting a few on my bump below my belly button and on my inner thighs.. Today I found a few little ones on the inner part of my knee? :shrug: What are they doing there!?

    the knees is because you are retaining water and so your thighs will get bigger which will make your knee skin stretch ... stretchmarks i have some on my inner thighs due to the whole pushing that is when i got those ones lol and some on my sides and some on my belly and boobs and i am pretty sure that is it but dont be surprised if your nana get s them to that will be from you babys head and the birth process but that is like worst case scenreo
