How to prevent stretch marks?

Is there a way to prevent stretch marks before they happen? I am 5 weeks and I've been told to use cocoa butter, ice, even a special mask stretch mark cream the doctor sells. Any personal suggestions?

No there's no way to do that. I've tried that when I was pregnant with my first and I only got one stretchmark but when I gave birth surprise I got alot of them :/

Vitamin E oil is great and very inexpensive. Bio Oil is also very effective for stretch mark prevention and treatment. If you do get stretch marks, dont worry your little bundle of joy will be worth every one! Good Luck
