Stretch marks are pretty inevitable I'm afraid. Mine were horrendous but they do get better after the birth. Theres not a lot you can do but I used to rub lots of cocoa butter cream on....smile

I had a few with my first right at the end and then the original ones grew with my second, but they don't look bad at all TBH and I still happily wear a bikini on holiday.

They look lots better a couple of months after the birth. Don't worry.

Love your stretchmarks - signs of the incredible thing your body is doing!

Rub cocoa butter on them so they don't get dry and itchy.

You may not get many more, and they do fade in time after your baby is born.

If you can splash out - Clarins Tonic body treatment oil is good & smells great. slightly complictaed instructions about how to use it... apply to damp skin then have cold shower, but i've started putting it on just after my shower & then rinsing very breifly.

think they are decreasing
