    Thanks ladies ... I feel like I will just have to wait and hope for the best! My and mum and both my sisters got stretch marks, however they didn't use anything. Hopefully if I keep using bio oil it will help minimise the amount I get, I don't mind a few... I just don't want to be covered in them.
    Thanks xx

    I've had an alternative doc tell me stretch marks are a sign of zinc deficiency in the diet - haven't looked into it at all, but an option to consider? I've had three kids, no stretchies and do eat quite a bit of red meat when pregnant (which is high in zinc - lots of other options though, inc. pumpkin seeds).

    I used 100% emu oil with my first and didn't get any, and am using it again this time. They say its genetics though.

    However emu oil has been known to reduce the appearance of stretch marks/scars etc, so i'm going to keep using it just in case haha

    It's Interesting to read this very useful thread. Are all these oils safe to use during pregnancy? I'm only applying coconut oil and that to about every 2-3 days.

    I got stretch marks for my first 3 pregnancies. My 4th one, I had a lot of baths and I would put almond oil in the bath. I didn't get any new stretch marks and I'm pretty sure some existing ones even faded.
    I don't know if it was the almond oil but it's the only real thing I did different

    I used this fairly new product that my doctor told me about, apparently it has bearberry which evens out your skin tone! so far so good, it was $25 but my skin is so soft.... seems to have all the ingredients of all the other creams i found at the chemist.
    it was on www.bydrrowais.com which seems to be an australian brand.
