One of the most annoying souvenirs that pregnancy can leave you with are stretch marks.
Now before I even get into this article, stretch marks don’t take away any of your beauty or value mamas! With that being said, they are something that most women would like to avoid.
I’m currently at the end of my third pregnancy, thank God! With all three of my pregnancies I’ve never gotten any stretch marks.
Genetically, the women in my family do have stretch marks so I like to think that the fact that I’ve avoided them has something to do with my regimen.
My holy grail product that I’ve been using since the beginning is Bio-Oil.
This stuff is magical and I use it every single day.
Usually I’ll take my bath and then slather this stuff all over my belly, hips, and boobies, and I kid you not I have not seen a single stretch mark.
Another major key is the fact that I don’t gain weight super quickly during pregnancy. A lot of that has to do with the fact that I’ve had really bad first trimesters and lose weight because of morning sickness.
Gaining or losing weight quickly can cause stretch marks, so that’s also something to keep in mind.
As a whole though, stretch marks or not, you are beautiful!
Giving birth to a human is something no man can claim to be able to do and should be celebrated not shamed. We are superwomen!
