Stretch marks are a beautiful sign of pregnancy.


As soon as you find out you’re pregnant, you know that things will change, from the size of your waist to the little stretch marks that appear. Stretch marks are exactly what they sound like: red or purple marks on your skin that show where it has grown. It usually appears on the buttocks, thighs, stomach, breasts, and arms. 90% of pregnant women will get them. How many they get depends on their bodies and how they try to keep them away.

There are a lot of lotions like scar serum, cocoa butter, and Maderma that claim to help prevent stretch marks. Make sure your skin is always moist. This will help your skin stretch without tearing. Every day, new things are found. Ask your doctor what they think you should do. First, you should try them out and see if they work for you. This isn’t something you can just put on once while you’re pregnant; you’ll have to do it every day for it to work. Most women fail in this area because they stop doing it.

Try to eat well and stay in shape while you’re pregnant. This can help you keep the weight off. In a healthy pregnancy, a woman who is 25 to 35 years old should gain between 25 and 35 pounds. Ensure you drink lots of water because staying hydrated is good for your skin. You can get stretch marks when your skin starts to dry.

If you’ve had one or more kids, you’re more likely to get stretch marks. You’ve already stretched out your skin and are about to do it again. Having a big baby or more than one baby can make you more likely to get stretch marks. As soon as you find out you are pregnant, start using creams and lotions with vitamins A and E to lower your chances of getting them.

Even with all your care, you may still have a few stretch marks after the pregnancy if you have. Don’t worry about how you look because these will fade over time. If they bother you a lot and you’ve waited a while, you can get a tummy tuck or use a laser to get rid of them. Set up a meeting with a dermatologist to hear what they have to say. You might find that you can get along with them after all.

It isn’t much you can do to stop these beautiful pregnancy marks besides taking care of your skin every day and eating well, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try. Take comfort in the fact that half of the women you know who have been pregnant probably have a mark or two, and some may even have a little road map. Think of it as having just been accepted into the motherhood gang. No woman should ever feel bad about her stretch marks. They may not be the most attractive thing in the world, but they mean one thing: your child. Keep that in mind the next time they make you feel sick.
