Palmers Stretch Marks Lotion - Try It Today.

Living With Stretch Marks

Pregnant and stretch marks go hand in hand. No matter how much lotion or creams you use you are bound to have them. For me I had them on the lower part of my stomach. The doctor told me to use Palmers. It did in fact help but, after my first child I knew that they could not be prevented.

My husband and I called them love marks. I was glad that he wasn't freaked out about them. I tried everything I could get my hands on. It seemed like I was putting some kind of lotion or cream on my belly 20 times a day.

That's when I realized that they were here to stay. As I have gotten older they have faded some. When I was in my 20's I loved going to the tanning bed. It seemed to really help in camouflaging them. Unless you looked really close most of the time you could not see them.

I joke about them now. Telling the kids to look how bad my stomach stretched out when pregnant. My husband says that it is something I will always carry with me reminding me of the joys and pains of pregnancy. That's why I love him so much. He always makes me feel so pretty even when I thought stretch marks were like a bad thing.

If a couple of stretch marks is all you get during pregnancy then you are lucky. If you do find yourself wanting to put creams or lotions on I recommend Palmers. Especially after a nice long shower. It smells great also.
