    I have noticed I have a few stretch marks on both my sides, what does everyone use to prevent more? I have started using bio oil but a lot of people tell me theve not had a got experience using it. Maybe I should have started using something sooner but I didn't notice my bump getting bigger lol x

    To be honest, nothing will completely prevent them, if your skin is going to stretch, then it's going to stretch! I used a stretch mark oil in belly and boobs from about 6 weeks preg and I have stretch marks all over my boobs. Oils and creams may mean you don't get as many, but the only way to completely prevent them would be to not grow as quickly! And obviously you have no control over that!

    Some women are lucky and don't get them, it just depends how the weight goes on xx

    its pot luck hunny if your getting them sadly you will get more. I knew I would get them as I had them from weight gain years before pregnancy. I used my creams and oils and I still got them.

    You can't prevent them but you can make yourself feel better by having a nice smelly cream on you to relax after a bath x
