I think it also depends on your body. I have 2 colleagues, both also have given birth 3 times. One has severe stretchmarks all over her thighs and stomach, the other one doesnt even have a line! Both also didnt use any lotion during their pregnancies.

i guess what peipei sd is true, i've ask my doc too, she sd it's pretty much depends on our body type. some women didnt even has 1 scratch even though didnt use any special cream lotion during pregnancy...i guess what we can do now, is to prevent for the worst loo....i start using these lotion since i am 1mth+ pregnant

i am using palmer's cocao butter cream & lotion,, alternate with clarin's body treatment oil. when i was @ MV ytday, the lady recommend me vitamin E scar serum, she sd can mix with normal lotion, then can help to prevent (not so sure prevent or fade) scar/stretchmark...

my Stretchmark now is red too. Girls, remember to apply it at the bottom of your tummy instead of the top because my stretchmarks appears only at the bottom of the tummy and my bum. Good Luck!!

WORK. :P hmm... hv to start applying on hips and bum too... forgot abt that area.. maybe coz my bum pun sudah ada liao.. white colour ones some more.... :unsure:

Hmm .. I think pregnancy and weight loss/weight gain stretch mark quite different ( I have both :P)

IMHO, the stretch mark creams dun really work and there are certain brands that have weird odor. Bad if you have morning sickness :) but the creams relieve itchiness very effectively. I love L''Occitane range, mostly for the pampering smell. :D

let me be the 1st to post lo....welcome to post ur feedback here...

I heard of this product that can help reduce pregnancy stretch marks and improve the root cause of female physiological symptoms.. It is made of a unique combination of rare herbs and developed based on traditional chinese medicine philosophy. Lots of good feedback on this product because it has no side effects, no hormones added, no chemicals, no artificial ingredients, no boiling required. Comes in 20ml bottle where u consume 1 per day. It's quite affordable too.

I'm gonna try it soon and hopefully i can see results after consuming this product.

Stretch marks are scars, and scars dont go away. As my Dr said... "If ur gonna get them, youll get them. All those stretch marks creams, lotions and oils dont work, so throw them away. Best u just apply normal lotion that ur use to." (that was coming from a skin specialist.)

Whether u choose to believe or not its up to you...
