Stretch marks!

So I made it to 27 weeks and despite practically rolling around in moisturiser the pesky things have appeared! Under my bump so didn't see them till I looked in the mirror the other day.

I use bio oil but ran out so have been using baby oil and palmers. Quite honestly I don't really care as it took so long to get here and I'm growing a bloody human! However I just wanted to ask how good bio oil is for fading them? I knew they'd come and I think they're inavoidable in all honesty but does this stuff fade them?

Sigh, mummy stripes is a better term lol.

To be honest mine haven't faded and I used bio oil and I think the only thing that works is time! It didn't prevent them either sadly.

None of them work. If you're going to get them, you're going to get them.

I stretched all over my bump in my first pregnancy and now I'm 34 weeks with my second I've even grown some new ones. I've only gained 19lbs so far as well. It's just genetics.
