Honestly if your going to get them you will, nothing really helps stop them but you can use stuff to minimize them

I am currently pregnant and using pure vitamin e oil and it seems to be working amazingly. My Aunt used it when she was prego and gained over 40 lbs with no stretch marks. My younger sister however didn't moisturize at all so she got bad stretch marks. She has been using the oil for a month and it has made her stretch marks less visible. Hope this helps. :)

I use it and since I started it's been really fading the ones I have (prior to baby) and haven't gotten any since I started using it (:

I use coco butter formula for my stretch marks I for some reason continue to get. I've only gained at the most 5 pounds but my stomach is covered. Just started it and it works awesome! But Vitamin E should work too!! :)

Is it just called vitamin e oil? Where can you get it? I was going to actually buy the mederma cream tomorrow since I hear so many good reviews about it! But its pretty pricey ;/

I used it along with palmers coco butter through out my whole first pregnancy and didn't get one stretch mark....until immediately after I gave birth -_- lol but it worked great to minimize the appearance :) a lot people say they are genetic so there is no way around it,
