Stretch Marks

Post by sgeiger16 » Tue Jun 13, 2006 6:47 pm

I was just wondering when all of you started to use creams to prevent stretch marks. :? Also, what did you use?

hi and congratulations

i started using oil in the shower and then cocoa butter as soon as i found out. Don't forget to smother your breasts in cream as well - they stretch too!

I started using Palmers Cocoa Butter at about 10 wks. It may be early, but hey, can't start too soon, huh? I use it on my breasts and hips too, since they can get stretch marks in pregnancy. Good luck!!

I used Champneys Mother to be Bump Cream. I started using it at about 16 weeks.
It worked well on me - although now I am disappointed that it did not smell like chocolate! :lol:

Good luck for the coming months
Best wishes
