    your stretchmarks dont even look bad at all dionne! i have some on my thighs and bum now. i had some on my boobs but they have faded away - practically completely now.

    are you putting cream on now dionne? if you continue afterwards it is supposed to help your skin too.


    hahaha btw saying 'take no notice' made me look :D what do they say?? :lol:

    my stretch marks are white like weestars. They are kinda shiny and not that noticeable. They dont bother me as I didnt have a bikini body before and doubt I will have one after.
    I think moisturising helps though, I have this time and am not as itchy and dont think any more marks are appearing. I just use johnstons, nothing fancy. I keep the expensive stuff for my face, it needs all the help it can get.LOL :lol:

    hahaha they say "your boyfriend says hi"

    the cam dont make them look bad, im just so used to showing my belly off :roll:

    i brought some coco firming lotion to help with the stretched skin and got some bio oil, but i used them twice, the bio oil is to greasy i hate it.

    hope once i have a tan it covers them

    Nope, at worst they were light pink at the very end of my pg but once the tension of the baby was away they went white. My tummy was very wobbly though, its as if the tightness never really came back.

    Hi dionne, i have about 2 really dark ones right at the top of my bikini line but the weird thing was my belly is darker than my body it always looked a littled tanned, so once i started to stretch it was really purpley but now its just very light pink but if i sit crouched over i have all this skin and its horrible but OH loved pinching and pulling it he says its like one of those stress balls :shock:


    Oh yeah dionne whatever u do dont go on a sunbed!!!! my oh brothers GF went on one and her stretchmarks now look like scars and wond fade or anything she has been to see a consultant to see about lazer treatment to remove them but she was refused.....lol consultant said it was her own fault for going on a sun bed.....lol

    If u do decide to go on the dionne just use a fare amount of lotion

    dionne,
    you dont look like you have the kinda skin that needs a sunbed. Are you one of those lucky folk that puts the washing out and comes back in with a tan.

    Oh Dionne, I love seeing those pics of you! I think you look great! I'm only petite too (five one and a half :D ) and I'm well on my way to being that big.

    There's a chance i might be induced early, goodness know how big I'll get otherwise!

    must try and get pics on so we can compare!!
