    My Mum has like, 1 or 2 stretchmarks, my stomach is covered... but it can still be genetics. They say puberty is linked to genetics too, but my mother didn't get hers until she was 16. I had boobs and pubic hair at 8.

    It's still generally down to genetics, even if you aren't exactly the same as your family.

    Also remember your genes come from your mother and father so how your mother's skin faired in pregnancy isn't always a great indication of how you will fair
    my mother had four kids without a single stretch mark, I am covered.

    I just used whatever was left over from my hands each night (sorbolene) and drinking plenty of water. But I think I am just blessed to only have one from 3 pregnancies!

    Default Stretch mark solutions minus the chemicals?

    Belli (pregnancy beauty therapy company) do a stretch mark oil called elasticity oil. Its all natural with lavender and other lovely stuff in it. Smells lovely and works really well has vitamin e and grape seed oil both if which are rich in antioxidants.

    Belli also have paraben-&-other-nasties-free products like cleansers moisturiser etc etc

    I know quite a few people who've used the oil and not one got stretch marks. Worked for me too.
