One of the first things I noticed pretty soon into my pregnancy was dry, itchy skin. Of course itchy skin meant stretching skin and stretching skin = the possibility of…STRETCH MARKS! I immediately starting thinking about what I needed to do ASAP to prevent them. Although I read online, in books and heard from my experienced mommy friends that most of this I wouldn’t be able to prevent – that it was totally going to be up to my genetic makeup whether or not I too would be inflicted and have to face those ‘stretchy’ reminders of turning into a glowing butterball – I knew I had to at least try find that perfect product.
So during my recent pregnancy (first time) and it being unexpected and all, I wasn’t exactly prepared for all the changes that had started to happen. And I’m not talking about the external changes, “we had to trade our sports car in for a sturdy SUV” or the internal emotional changes, “I feel really connected and immense joy about this life growing inside of me“…I’m talking the purely physical ones. The “my old bras can hardly hold it all in there” changes.
