Well, Im well into my seventh month and I've yet to see a single stretch mark. It can also be genetic, since both my mother and sister don't have stretchmarks, but I do recommend Palmer's Cocoa Butter Oil. It comes in a spray form and it also helps to relieve the itching from your skin being stretched. Its helped me alot since scratching also contibutes to you getting stretch marks, so hands off!!!! :lol: Try not to worry to much about it and just enjoy your pregnancy. Good luck!!!!

I didn't get stretch marks until my eighth month. The doctor said that some women get them and some women don't. I am two days past my due date. And I asked about mederma. If you do get stretch marks use that because it makes the stretch marks less visible. Try taking a vitamin E pill and rubbing that on your tummy. My co-worker told me that she did that. Stretch marks have nothing to do with how big you get.
