Hump Day Bump Pics: Week 24

Quick! Turn away if bare bellies make you blush.

I can't help but stare at my belly every time I walk by a mirror. It amazes me how much I'm changing every week. I would be lying though if I said that I'm not self-conscience about some of the changes that come along with this crazy journey. I am sooo nervous about stretch marks! I don't want them. I mean, who does? I don't have any yet but it's something that has been on my mind since the day I found out I was pregnant.

There are so many different theories about stretch marks. Some believe certain lotions can prevent them while many experts agree that there is nothing you can do to prevent it. Throughout my pregnancy I've used Palmers organic stretch mark cream, Barleans organic coconut oil, bio oil (which did not agree with my skin AT ALL) and so on. When it comes down to it, I know that bringing my baby into this world makes things like stretch marks seem so small. As my husband so convincinlgy said, "they're not strecth marks, they're baby marks".

With that said.... I'm still going to do what I can to help keep them away. Any thoughts on what I should be using?

  1. Beautiful picture! I got a lot of stretchmarks when I was pregnant but I also was not very good about using lotion. My friend told me about this cream that she used when she was pregnant,she said it was amazing and has no stretchmarks. She doesn't remember the name of it but she got it in the baby section at Nordstroms.

    Hope that helps!
