I’ve always heard that if you drink plenty water during pregnancy you could prevent stretchmarks. Unfortunately, I didn’t follow that plan exactly. I did try to eat good, did some yoga, and drank more water than I normally would for the 1st and mid 2nd trimester, but then I just relaxed and did whatever. I didn’t gain any weight until after 16wks, and though my stretch marks aren’t that bad, I can’t help but feel that if I had only drank more water my skin would have bounced back. I think I would appreciate my marks more if I knew that there wasn’t any amount of exercise, diet, or water I could have drank and been mark free, instead of thinking that I did this too myself by not taking care of myself properly. So can any moms(with or without stretchmarks) vouch for whether plenty water did or didn’t work for them? Please detail what you did and how much you did.
