    hey all you mummys! hope your ok?

    i am currently 11weeks, and thinking... maybe i should start using some cream on my tummy to try and prevent stretch marks.

    i was just wondering... which ones would you recomend to be the best in prevention????

    i have a few at the moment from where i used to be bigger and i am worried that they might start stretching again...

    can anyone help please.... x x x x

    I used the Avent one but a lot of people swear by bio oil and cocoa butter.

    I bought a big thing of bio oil then discovered I couldn't stand the smell of it :puke: I've mostly used Mother and Baby balm from L'Occitane which is lovely and has no scent at all. I got Mothers Balm from Neal's Garden for my Christmas and it feels gorgeous! It smells a bit funny though so I use it on my tummy and the Occitane stuff on my breasts at night and I can't smell the stuff on my tummy because of my quilt :D But I've been really strange about scented stuff while pregnant.

    I used bio oil and palmers cocoa butter and didn't get stretch marks on my tummy untill about the last week of my pregnancy and now strangely I seem to have got more on my tummy after giving birth.

    I used the palmers one... I thought I had got away with them but since the birth I've noticed a hell of a lot I hadn't realised were there. Not on my belly as such, but everywhere else.

    aloe vera and palmers BALM (in tub and green in colour). Both have been fab :D

    but i have tried clarins which was good, decelor, palmers coco butter, mothercare's and many more but found aloe evra and the balm the best.

    I used bio oil all through my pregnancy and didn't get one on my tummy, back or bum.....which is quite amazing as I have old ones from when I was a teenager, so I was convinced i'd get them!
