Stretch marks... sigh!
Firstly for some reason I cant access my old account so I have had to re-register, ive kept my name but added "2" on the end.
Right I know this is a much discussed topic online and everyone says the same things really (trust me ive spend hours looking into thistopic area) but im still intrigued how we are all doing in regards to stretch marks???
I got them in puberty and I am convinced I wont avoid them in pregnancy. I am trying really hard to not over indulge in this pregnancy and I put palmers butter on twice a day PLUS bio oil on twice a day and drink gallons of water!!! I scrub my belly with a body brush and have even contrmplated popping vitamin E tablets on my belly now for good measure (I know a little obsessed right???).
I was fairly relaxed about it until we got pregnant and my inlaws straight away said I MUST use oils everyday to avoid stretchmarks and even went on to show me my MIL stomach which is "perfect" after 2 babies. The fear crept in and I felt myself buying every oil I could find. Dont get me wrong my inlaws are lovely and I know they mean well but they honestly believe if I butter up I just wont get them. Each week they ask me how im doing and if im still stretchmark free. My MIL even looked at my belly to check... eak!
I have tried to say im more likely to get them then not to, but they refuse to listen and say its not genetics but down to buttering up!
Again I must stress that they are lovely and perfect inlaws... its just this random thing they have in their head and it has scaredme wittless.
Im getting down with it now and im terried of getting them...
Sooooooooooo my question is what are you doing to prevent them?
Have you got them and if so when and where a bouts?
Any advice in generla on this would be most appericated!!!
Thanks lovely ladies!
