While pregnant, what lotion do you think is best to use on your belly? I have heard cocoa butter is best for stretch marks, but do I need to use that before I have any stretch marks?

I hate to be the bearer of bad news. Stretch marks are going to happen to some women. I had four kids, not one stretch mark on my belly or bottom, but my breasts Yikes! they fade and are hardly noticeable now.
I worked in labor and delivery and have seen thousands of bellies. I have seen women carrying twins with not a single mark and I have seen mothers with tiny bumps with loads of stretch marks.
Focus on good nutrition, there is evidence that cocoa butter helps, so start using it now. I know it is hard to see your body change. I will never forger the day i steps out of the shower to find the purpley stretch marks on my boobs. I was horrified! I promise you it passes and they fade to almost nothing.
