stretch marks

I bought mederma stretch mark cream for my stretch marks, im 37 weeks pregnant, and my stretch marks are horrible! Can I use this cream while im pregnant? Or should I wait till after the baby is born?

Thanks for using the forum.

Mederma's  web site recommends speaking with your doctor before using their product while pregnant or breastfeeding. This is good advise before using any medication or herbal remedy.

Congratulations on your pregnancy. I hope this helps.

I had awfl stretch marks too! It really just depend on the elasticity of each persons skin.Creams can help a little,but always check with GP that they are safe to your unborn child.Massaging helps a little,as it improves the elasticity of your skin.Ive had 4 Children,and so has my friend,she has no marks,I have very faint now,white lines.They may look red nd nasty now,like "Flames" coming up your tummy!!! But they will fade with good exercise and diet after baby is born.Good luck with the birth(DONT LET THEM BREAK YOUR WATERS TO SPEED THINGS UP OR YOU WILL BE IN AGONY WITH A "DRY" BIRTH!!!,Thats of course as long as baby is not getting stressed,waters are mean't to bulge,then pop when in labour,ITS NATURAL,NOT WHAT TIME THE MIDWIFE WANTS TO GET OFF SHIFT<OR JUST CAUSE MANY HOURS HAVE PASSED! Have a GOOD BIRTH PLAN,AND DON@T LET MIDWIVES DICTATE TO YOU,THIS IS YOUR BABY,YOUR BODY!!! Let me know hw it goes hun,Take care,Sarah,x

I forgot a little more advise,that's always helped me.when baby is born,if u want to breastfeed and get sore and crcked nipples,use KAMILOSAN CREAM! Its NATURAL,AND DOESN'T HAVE TO KEEP BEING WASHED OFF BEFORE EACH FEED,ITS AVAILABLE OVER THE COUNTER,AND WORKS FANTASTICALLY!!! ALSO,WHEN UR BABY HAS COLIC,(THEY ALL DO!!!) USE ASHTONS AND PARSONS POWDER ALSO AVAILABLE OVER COUNTER,AND IS MOST NATURAL THING TO GIVE BABY! LET ME KNOW HOW IT GOES,GOOD LUCK HUN,TAKE CARE,LOVE SARAH,XXX
