Quoting -Alisa- MaMa of 3:" <blockquote><b>Quoting chicnhed:</b>" The rest of the body changes aren't whats getting ... [snip!] ... it but its an adjustment for all woman period. Good luck. They wont be as bad as u fear if u are the type to care for ur body."


True....
I am fine now but the very first time I got some(with pregnancy number 4) I was in panic mode too. I did everything possible and now my skin looks pretty good for 7 pregnancies and soon to be 6 births. Mine are very minimal and don't look that bad BUT I had a flawless body until then, so it was hard to adjust but i did. Like I said before..... my children was worth the trade.
As far a swim suits go.... they have really nice ones that cover marks and compliment as well.

Has anyone tried Mederma? A friend of mine has a friend that carried triplets and said it worked for her. I think thats more for repairing than preventing, but I'd love to start the healing process asap. I guess I'll have to ask my doctor if its ok to use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

I used Baby Oil for all of mine and Palmers Coco Butter recently..I have the whole line...But baby oil is my go to girl.
Cheap and effective. My mom used it and never had a mark....I used it and never got one until number 4 when I didn't stay on it and tried something new... Now I do both palmers and baby oil... only reason I do plamers is because i don't always like to feel like a grease ball..lol
