When I was in my first trimester of my first pregnancy, I read an article where a supermodel swore by Bio Oil to keep her stretch mark free. So naturally I ran out to Target that day to get me some. And I experienced a bit of sticker shock: one bottle of that stuff is $20! But it did not disappoint.
It kept me stretch mark free through two pregnancies by applying it twice a day, every single day. I didn’t gain that much weight with My Girl, but My Bear was different story. I was fully expecting to sport some stretch marks during round two, but I believe Bio Oil prevented that from happening. Especially because I have stretch marks from getting breast & hips during puberty – so my body has been susceptible to them in the past. But perhaps that magic potion kept them at bay when growing my babies!
So if you are pregnant, keep Bio Oil in mind. I don’t know if it works for everybody, but it was worth the $20 gamble for sure.
