    Strech Marks

    I know God blessed me with a wonderful gift but i cant help but think about ways to not get strech marks. My mom and oldest sister have them horrible but my middle sister barely has them at all. I am 3 months pregnant and do have a few small white ones on my side. Also on my inner thighs. I noticed them before I was pregnant so thats why I figured I would get them all over. I am using Bio oil and vitamin E oil. I was wondering if these have worked for anyone else or if someone had any other ideas on things they may help????? If I get them I get them but if at all possible id like to prevent them:)

    I'm not sure if there is anything that will help prevent you from getting stretch marks. All the articles i've read said there isn't much you can do about stretch marks. I believe webmd has something so i'd look it up.

    The best thing to do is to make sure your tummy doesn't dry out so keep it moisturized..
