Stretch Mark Cream...When DId You Start?

Postby amysbabies » Thu Jul 31, 2008 12:21 pm

My friends gave me a basket with some stretchmark cream and oil to rub on my tummy... I've heard that the earlier you start, the more elastic your skin is and the less chances for stretchmarks.. is this right? I'm only almost 6 weeks..should I start now?

IVF4: dec/jan Dear Lord..please let this be the one.

I started that stuff almost the day I found out I was pregnant. However, within a few days I had a reaction to it. So I was unable to use any cream. However, I did not get a single stretch mark. YEA!!!

Hi they say start as early as possible although i didn't until I was gone 20 wks and thankfully I haven't got any stretch marks - it can't do any harm to start now - any creams for your skin can't be a bad thing eh!
