About Stretch Marks - All You Need To Know
For every pregnant woman, there comes a time when she wants to know about stretch marks.
Funnily enough, all the information and stories that friends and relatives volunteer do not inform the expectant mother about stretch marks.
Although many medical professionals advise that certain body lotions and creams are specially designed for stretch marks, nothing ever seems to work with me!
One thing you are never fully aware of when you become pregnant is about stretch marks. People tend to tell you about just about everything else under the sun that plagued them during their pregnancies, but no one seems to mention anything about stretch marks.
It must be some sort of hidden secret. I personally think it's because they don’t want anyone to know that they have the god-awful things on their stomachs years after giving birth?
I’ll tell you one thing about stretch marks, and that is there is nothing to do to prevent them. It is purely genetic.
If one of the lucky women who never sees one of those river deep indentations on your skin then it’s because you have the elasticity in your skin that will allow you to glide through pregnancy.
Six months after giving birth to my second child, I still have horrendous stretch marks that don’t seem to be fading. Don’t be fooled by what commercials try to tell you about stretch marks and their magical creams to avoid them.
I tried everything under the sun during my first pregnancy and still had awful stretch marks that were deep and red. Only about one year later did they seem to be somewhat subsiding, and I decided to get pregnant again which only added more on top of the ones that already existed!
Despite what everyone tells you cream and lotions and other such products will not prevent these marks. Sure, the creams will make your skin itch less, but they certainly won’t stop your body rom producing marks.
You may think you have made it through pregnancy without getting them once you reach your last few days. Surprise! That’s another thing that is never mentioned about stretch marks – you often get them after you deliver your child! It makes absolutely no sense to me.
|However, several women I know have gone through their entire nine months with not so much as a small mark, and them BAM! They deliver and they have stretch marks all over their sides.|
And when you start to lose your pregnancy weight? You know when you are supposed to start feeling good about yourself again? That’s when they seem to become more apparent, mainly because they have less surface area to cover so they get all smashed together into one big lump.
Yes, pregnancy is a beautiful time in a woman’s life. But ask questions about stretch marks and other side effects before you even become pregnant. That way you won’t be surprised when your body is just never quite the same.
The truth is that all women go through pregnancy differently. Some women endure pain from the fist through last stages of the pregnancy. Although mine were never the case, my pregnancies resulted in a great deal of stretch marks. Honestly this can be quite frustrating as you would try any and everything to have these absolutely disappear. So after the fit of trying every cream on the market I am reading about stretch marks prevention and cures on the World Wide Web.
