different topical pregnancy oils
How I found the stretch marks
How my partner responded to them
"Battle scars" he said, and I should be proud of them.
What I Did:
Rubbed stuff on like crazy.
Where I found them
On the hips and lower belly is where I noticed most of my stretch marks, but there were some little one's elsewhere. I had such big bad ones one pregnancy that it took a couple of years to have them not feel sensitive anymore. By then I was pregnant again.
Tips & tricks
- I've since read that to use topical stuff simply doesn't get to the heart of the problem. One cause of the problem is dehydration. . .so next time around, I'll drink more. Another problem is a hormonal one, that I've heard a natural progesterone cream deals with nicely. So I will use it in the beginning of pregnancy to avoid miscarriage and the end of pregnancy to avoid stretch marks.
