Answer: Hello dear, Stretch marks may occur when our body suddenly gains or loses excess weight. During pregnancy, with the growing baby inside womb, the skin stretches beyond its capacity, leading to ugly looking stretch marks. Its always better to treat them as early as possible. U can try some home remedies to get rid of stretch marks for example use natural oils or massage with cocoa butter moisture, u can also apply aloe version gel or petroleum jelly. U can also prepare natural moisturiser at home by mixing a few drops of your favourite essential oils with a coconut or almond oil. It worked for me hope it will do for you as well.  All the very best!

Answer: Hi dear, I am glad that you are taking preventing measures from this early.usually stretches starts appearing from end of second trimester. Strechmarks are due to streching of stomach skin due to growing baby. You can also get strechmarks anywhere in body like,shoulders,legs thighs etc.more water retention and increase body weight makes the skin strech and thus the strech marks.they are mostly itchy and scaly.they also turn pinkish or reddish. You should have taken precautions by end of second trimester by applying oil and lotions. Now at this stage you can still moisturize the area with coocoa butter or coconut oil. Never scratch it with nails.to sooth it can apply aloe Vera gel there. Basically keep the skin well hydrated by drinking lots of water and applying moisturizer. Bio oil can also be effective in keeping the area hydrated. If it itches ,use a clean soft cotton cloth to rub.Also refer the healofy app for daily updates on baby development and growth,as well as pregnancy care.it also gives you enormous info on post delivery baby care and diet.donot miss out!
