Okay and thats fine, Im just saying not all products are only to help improve stretch marks, there are products that actually help prevent them. Im a esthetician and I know a fair emount about skin care. She asked for feedback on what she can use to help, I gave her my opinion and exsperiance, and I genuinely beleive that cocoa butter helped, i noticed a big diffrence in the feel of my skin, some people wont be abel to completly avoid them, because like you said, genetics is a factor. But whatever you can use to help REDUCE them, I would push towards palmers as it is great to improve the elasticity which is also a HUGE factor.

Yeah genetics is a big thing, which sucks. But oh well, if you can keep them to a minimum thats great but ither way if you get them or not its well worth it and wear them proud:P

I think the purpose of this forum was for positive feedback.

It was just for peoples opinions on what helped them the most, like I said I know their genetic ..if I get them I won't be ashamed of them one bit!

Lol I was the same which is why I had the cream on 24/7, I always had my clothes sticking to me at work, it was uncomfortable, but it was mandatory haha.

the cocoa butter is actually quite greasy but it keeps you moist all day. It's kind of exspensive but I found it on sale at Shoppers drug mart a few times for like 4.00$ and STOCKED UP! Youll go through alot so be sure to do the same if you see a sale:P

I used cocoa butter lotion almost daily, I don't have any marks on my stomach but did get some on my hips. My mom was covered in them from my brother and I so I figured I would be, but thankfully I'm not.

Honestly not sure why people really care about getting stretch marks. When you get pregnant you know what can happen, your body changes. I have stretch marks from my daughter and I'm proud of them.<3 I mean it's not like you'll be on a stripper pole or out flaunting your body? Well I'd hope not. My daughter is almost 2 months old and mine are barely visible unless you look for them.

I aim to please myself as well, but I don't need to complain about marks made by my child growing within my body to do so.

I was just looking for something to prevent them, because I don't want them ...but their genetic so theirs really nothing you can do if you do get them! I'd rather not have them though because no offence but their kinda ugly..but its nothing to be really ashamed of because alot of people have them, but me I DONT want them!

Really,do you enjoy being at the beach? getting naked infront of your spouce and feeling sexy, I enjoy those things! And I know I wouldent quite as much if I was marked up, however If i did have them, i wouldent be ashamed, I never went into it exspecting to come out perfect, I wanted a baby, it is more important to me then my body, but with that said, I didnt get any, and I am quite fond of my un marked body! Alot more so then If I did get them. Just my personal feelings towards it. I religiously used cocoa butter hopeing I wouldent get any stretch marks. Im sure if you had the choice, to come out of your pregnancy looking like you did going in, you would chose not to have them, so dont comment about people being silly for wanting to prevent them.



And I totally hope I didnt offend any one, Im just stateing the obviouse reasons in which some of us might not want them! (since you basically asked!)



Sorry this is so delayed but I had to get some shopping done:D

I just don't understand the people that get them and whine and complain.
