I have two stretch marks(from my first pregnancy) but they dont itch,my stomache is itchy now but only because im 18 weeks pregnant and growing,have you tried vitamin E cream?or Rose hip oil is meant to be really good.

it's strange because they itched like this as i was getting bigger throughout my pregnancy, but now they are again, perhaps as i'm shrinking!? i'm using vit E but still itchy! thanks for your help Smile

no products will work on ur stretchmarks hun- if ur gonna get em ul get em - theres some lucky ladies out there - but i certainly wasnt one of em LOL! im still covered in em now and ethans 17months old!! theyre my mummy marks tho LOL so i dont care about them!

as for them being itchey - mine used to itch like mad and i quite often drew blood for scracthin!! Shocked just bath ur tummy in cold water - it will take away the itchey feelin

i didnt get any stretch marks during my first preg and im 28 weeks into my second and havent gotten any. since finding out i was preg i have used palmers cocoa butter everynight (during first preg too).
i advise everyone i know who's preg to use it on their tummy xx

bio oil is good and is the only thing that seems to work

your not preg now are you? because theres a cream called lanacane thats just for itching, you can buy it at the chemist/sainsbury/tesco/asda
