Question for the Answer Box (i.e. responses from YOU!): My first concern is healthy baby, but I do want to know if my bikini days will truly be over after this pregnancy. Has anyone found anything that really works to prevent or erase stretch marks? Honest answers welcome.
Nope. It's genetics and luck. I didn't have any stretch marks at all with my first on my due date; 1.5 weeks later I had a ton of them all over my lower belly. So my first suggestion would be to not go two weeks overdue. And then my son's huge stretches gave me a bunch all over my upper belly. So I guess my second suggestion would be to embrace them as the mark of motherhood and, if they really bother you, then get some body makeup.
