    Know what you mean about your belly button peicing, mine has turned into a big scar.

    Hey Peeps,

    I started panicking when I started to get stretch marks at around 30 weeks. I cant actually see mine unless I use a mirror as they are on the underside of my tummy. aparently my mum had the same ones at the time and now she has nothing due to exerising them and ot losing the weight too fast.

    Can I recommend Palmers Cocoa butter cream for the stretch marks though as its improved mine inn the meantime quite a bit!

    I started using the palmers stuff after my stretch marks appearred as a friend recommended it and I'd heard loads about it and its really cleared them up a lot because I havent got any bigger in last wee while.

    Lets hope once LO makes an appearance it still keeps clearig then up!

    lol
