When does your stretch mark start to appear? when should I start to apply stretch mark cream? Thanks!
My gynae didn't ask me to apply anything although when I went for the 5th month detailed scan... I've started to use Palmer's stretch mark cream but dont't really like the smell of it. Must quickly finish this tube and look for other alternatives hehe..
my gynae didnt recommend, he said those stretch mark cream is no use one, also said if it works, he will long selling it to his patients. he claimed that whether one has stretch marks depends on individual.
my gynae didnt intro me any cream at all.. and i dont hav e habit of applying stretchmarks cream either cos too lazy.. hehe
I have been applying the palmer cream as to avoid terrrible stretch marks. So far i only apply one time every night just before i sleep. My dear hubby will help me to apply and massage for me. Hope there won't be any stretch mark. My gynae did not mention anything to me.
dark red and long and so many~~~~lols
but they all disappeared within one year after birth...very long ~~~
almost skin tone .....
Start applying as soon as possible! I started quite early. Got clearance from gynae before i started though. Used Palmers. NO stretchmarks at all !! :P
never use any stretch mark since day one of my pregnancy. bought it but too lazy to apply. my friends all use it during their first trimester and when compare we still have stretch mark after delivery. But it's all up to individual, some are just lucky that they're free of stretch mark. Mine start to appear only during the 6th months or so.
Same like jan4january, my gynae also never recommend and he told me it's up to individual. Guess most mummies always take prevention by applying it earlier, it's good but have to do it religiously to see effect.
not sure if all of you share the same concern as me...but to me stretch marks there or not it doesnt make any difference.....coz actually the hardest thing to tackle is cellulites....till now my cellulites are still parking there free of charge....seems forever there liaoz....
All mummys and mummys-to-be, Happy Mother's Day hehe!!
Is there any symptoms before stretch marks really start to appear? Recently i got some red spots appearing on the right side of my tummy at night, but go away the next day... wonder if this is the early symptoms of stretch marks? scared scared ...
CanCanMum, your cellulites appear around tummy also?
Stretch marks appeared around 7th month.
I thought I was lucky that my baby bump was barely noticeable till 7th month. Then it grew & grew (the size doubled or tripled by 9th month).
Skin was so tight!!! Awful purple lines appeared around the belly button area. No amt of cream can help me if the skin is stretched so much within such 2-3 month.
sigh, it would have been better if growth of baby bump was more gradual. Then maybe the cream can help a little bit.
I hear from friends the purplish lines will fade to whitish lines in time. My legs are still a little swollen almost 3 weeks after delivery. Hope they are not cellulite...
i started applying stretch mark cream in my second trimester ( close to 4th month), so far almost 38 weeks , no stretch mark .
hmmm.... mine started appearing around 6 months into the pregnancy.. scary!
Wah, no symptoms, appear out of no where, sounds so scary...
Yuki, what stretch mark cream do you use?
