I used the generic of mederma- the stretch marks got a lot thinner and less noticeable; however I am pregnant again and they look a lot worse so hopefully my "magic gel" works again! I have also been wrapping my vaseline covered belly in plastic wrap and they washing it and lathering in the cocoa butter... its worked for me- good luck to you!

unfortunately I dont think you can get rid of them without surgery, I think there are ways you can minimize the colour but other than that you are stuck with those little love marks :)

I used plain coco butter. Now i'm using Olay Body wash with body butter ribbons and jojoba butter, seems to be working faster than the coco butter.

Ugh, the age old question!! Motherhood can be so cruel hey?!?!!
Bio-oil has been good for making them less red & time is definitely shrinking them. I'm planning on a tummy tuck after my last child!! HA HA!

Cocoa butter cream and liquid vitamin E works and its a whole lot cheaper than other ways.
