I just gave birth to my first child a few weeks ago. She ended up being a c-section after over 24 hours of natural (NO PAIN MEDICINE) labor. I rubbed vitamin e oil on my tummy every single night before I went to bed and after each shower. I thankfully ended up without any stretch marks but I have a lovely scar and some extra baggage in the belly. I am looking forward to getting back in shape and having another one! Motherhood is wonderful!
