oh, I guess I should mention that I put those two things on my breasts, armpits, belly, sides, back, hips and thighs!!! LOL... I know it sounds like a lot, but if you do the oil before bed, by morning you'll not even notice the oiliness and your jammies will keep it from getting on your sheets
My mom and both sisters got stretch marks. I had gotten them in my early adult years on my hips, and I didn't want to get them on my belly, so on my first pregnancy I used cocoa butter lotion everyday and straight 100% vitamin E oil once a week, then everytime I felt itchy, I refused to scratch and ASAP applied more cocoa butter and vitamin E oil... never got one stretch mark!!! Doing the same with this pregnancy and so far nothing!!!!! Praise the Lord!!!!
Im using Elasticity Belly Oil by Belli, so far so good. I have gotten some on the top back of my legs but i wasnt using the oil there. I also got there stretch mark minimizing cream so if i do get any i can start putting that on. All their products are safe to use while pregnant and they have great reviews.
I've been using palmers cocoa butter massage creme. Its smells good and doesnt stay oily for long. Unfortunately theres nothing we can do to prevent them its hereditary. But lotioning does help the elaticity (sp) and helps keep from our tummy's and hips and anywhere else from getting itchy. I havent gotten any of my belly yet but the little tiny ones from gaining and losing weight in highschool that are just getting longer and longer on my thighs and hips, they started at like an inch and now some of them are 3-4 inches! my mom got stretch marks realy bad so im screwed lol.
