    dionne I would only go for a little time at first on a sunbed. The first one i went for I ended up with heatstroke and that includes the shakes and diarrhoea (TMI) sorry!

    I have never burned in my life which i did really badly and felt ill, breastfeeding at the same time and felt horrid. Dont get me wrong after the first 2 i was absolutely fine and it definetley has helped my stretch marks die down into my own skin tone but please be careful for now. Hormones being all over the place right nnow doesnt help for burning either!

    Other than that I feel but better abot myself as it is giving me my healthy glow back, feel morelike a yummy mummy than a minger nowadays! lol

    Ok how come my stretch marks are way worse than Dionnes and i had my baby 5 months ago? :evil: i'm just not stretchy enough :lol:

    i used loads of cream and one day about 28 weeks i found this diddy little stretch mark and i though it was so cute and showed everyone! :roll: i can see that first one i had now - its now about 4 inches long and a 3/4 of an inch wide :shock:

    oh well they are our war wounds girls and we should be proad of them (she says getting back into her dark corner where no one can see :lol: )

    weestar i get freckles in the sun too and they were awful when i was pregnant,, you could see a line of them across my forhead and then over my face towards my chin, almost like a mask. mine arent the cute ones - they are like grubby little marks (mum used to tell me to wash my face as i looked dirty :lol: ) they faded loads after i had alex though. still got a fair few but that might be the sun!

    i'd have a boob job but after seeing tummy tucks done it makes me feel sick the insision (sp?) looks awful and i bet its a nightmare for weeks after besides if you get bigger boobs it might make your waistline smaller!
