These are pictures of my belly the day of, 1 week postpartum, and 2 weeks postpartum. I had a c-section in the middle of Sept. 2007. In my 8th month of pregnancy I started to get stretchmarks on my belly. I was fine with the few I had gotten on my sides and inner thighs, but I was so saddened by getting them on my stomach. I applied Johnson’s baby oil gel w/ aloe and vitamin E religiously, especially right after a shower when still wet, and at night. Who knows, it could have been worse had I not applied the gel??? I am still applying the baby oil gel, and I also bought mederma. We shall see how it works out.
