  1. I really wish I used more of these when I was pregnant. My oldest likes to say “mommy likes me more because I didn’t give her stretch marks” HAHAHA. My second child wasn’t so nice in that department.

      If you apply the coconut oil. It can help to lighten your stretch marks and make them less visible, if that’s something your looking for Chrissie.

      Hi Elyse. I usually apply the palmers lotion if I am preventing the stretch marks, so all through pregnancy. And I love to use the coconut oil on the stretch marks I have to help them disappear. Yes you can apply both at once, however I would recommend maybe alternating nights of applying.:)

  2. I used coconut oil for my second and third pregnancies. I did have stretch marks from my first pregnancy, but I do think the coconut oil stopped any more from popping up.

  3. I love cocoa butter! Especially Palmers! I really wish I would have use it more though from my first pregnancy to my last. Oh, well. I still use it even though I haven’t been pregnant since 2005. I just love the smell and silkiness of it.

  4. Adequate moisturization and hydration is KEY during pregnancy – but some women do seem more prone to them. I only got one small stretch mark over my appendectomy scar during my first pregnancy, and at 32 with baby 2, I have yet to see one! Thanks for the awesome tips – definitely will be taking some of these to heart as I grow rather quickly in these last few weeks. Thanks for sharing! <3

      Congrats Savannah! Best of luck with your little one and no stretch marks. Thank you for your comment!

  5. I was so bad with using cream with my first that all those marks set in and now I am on my third pregnancy 4 years later and I hope it can be a little better this time. I Will definitely try the coconut oil! Thanks for the tips.

  6. These are what I used when I was pregnant. I still go stretch marks but they weren’t nearly as bad as they could’ve been. So I got this postpartum stretch mark cream afterwards that really seemed to help too.

  7. haha my stomach looks like a road map for real so I’m long past this! I wish I could say I could’ve prevented it but I tried everything and I’m totally a believer in genetics

      I will say some are more prone to it than others. But like I said you should embrace your tiger stripes. They mean you sacrifice for your kiddos.
