Just in Case... Right?!

I know stretchmarks are pretty much genetic. I know I can welcome them any day now! I know they are a reminder of the baby. I know I will love 'em once they're here.

But on the off chance they don't show up, I'm entirely okay with that as well. On the off chance they choose to show up later than sooner, I'm pretty on board with that as well.

They don't hurt right? They just come along with the baby's growth and are not triggered by what you eat or what you do... right?!

I hope they at least have a pattern that's funny to look at. I hope they tell a story.

I probably have too many products. I probably won't be able to use it all during this pregnancy.

(Mustela is missing since I used it all and it's a lot pricier than Palmer's cuz it smells so great!)

My body is a Temple, and I know it may not be able to withstand stretch marks and even if it doesn't, it's still a Temple... BUT... the effort doesn't hurt. And it's quite amusing actually.

Our good friend is a Dermatologist (and tall, and eligible, and athletic, and smart, and single if any are looking!) and he confirmed the fact that it is genetic and there's nothing you can really do about it... BUT, he also said... if he were a girl, he'd be trying them creams as well. Guess Dr. knows best!

Sorry to say it... you will never love them once they are there... but you will learn to not worry about it. You have made stretch marks much more glamorous than I have ever seen them!

Good news is that they often fade with time. Mine were pretty much gone when my baby was 6 or 7 months old. I may have been lucky though. Even if they do stick around, at least they're generally covered up so very few people actually see them.:-)
