Hi all,

Any tips / ideas? i'm currently 38 + 3 and my boobs are currently stretchmark free, although my lower stomach is sufferring and itching like mad.

Aer there any ways of minimising chances of getting them when my milk comes in?

just moisturise with something unscented and pray...

Yep - fingers crossed. Stretch marks are a matter of luck, genetics and pre-preg skin quality, rather than any product, though moisturising with something will help with any itching.

I haven't got any stretch marks anywhere <smug>

Am sure it was the Decleor oils! wink

Get a really good nursing bra. I lived in Bravado tanks, but also love some of the glam ones from Hotmilk.

I had some stretchmarks on my tum but they have faded to nothing with the help of bio oil. It's fantastic. Put it in your bath and it will sort you out.
