One of the first things I wondered about after finding out I was preggers was stretch marks. After scouring the internet and even taking a precautionary visit to a dermatologist, I picked out a natural oil based product at Whole Foods called Mother’s Special Blend. The packaging seriously looks like it was bottled in 1973. And who’s to say it wasn’t. Like a fine wine…I don’t think it is predetermined who will get them and who will not. But what I did find is that you have to be at your ideal weight prior to pregnancy and gain a healthy amount of weight during your pregnancy. And you have to moisturize your skin. Skip any of those three steps and you are headed to the demilitarized zone. Did I like this product? Hell yes. Would I use it again? Yup.
