My son is now 2 years and 3 months old and we found out last weekend that we have another on the way. The first thing my husband said to me was "You have to go get that stuff you used last time because you don't look like you gained 40 pounds and lost it." That stuff was vitamin E oil. I slathered myself in it every day after my shower. I am thankful to say I have NO stretch marks.
