I read a little bit online that if you rub Vicks Vapor Rub on you stretch marks with a paper towel or washcloth every night that within a couple of weeks your stretch marks will start to fade. I'm just curious if anyone has ever tried this? and if you did does it really work?

Nothing does that. Once you have them, they're there for good.

Never heard of it before. The couple I got on my legs faded on their own.

I know they'll always be there, but i would atleast like for them to fade. I have some on my thighs, and legs and it's horrible. hopefully they'll at least fade after this pregnancy.

haha, they get away with a lot of stuff that we can't! haha, but yeah i'd love for them to just leave, and NEVER come back. i use coco butter and so many creams, nothing works. so i'm crossing my fingers once he's born, they'll fade or something :)
