Stretch Mark is a badge of Motherhood 

You’ll most likely start to notice stretch marks on your stomach (and elsewhere) around the end of the second trimester into the beginning of the third trimester. They do sometimes appear sooner in different colors & sizes. Here are a few tips to help with stretch marks

-Keep taking your prenatal vitamin

-Eat vitamin C-rich foods like peppers, citrus and strawberries. Vitamin C promotes collagen and tissue production, which helps keep skin strong and elastic. 

- Getting enough vitamin D in your diet may also help with stretch marks, and it certainly can’t hurt. Load up on fatty fish, fortified dairy or dairy substitutes, and eggs, all of which are chock full of vitamin D, plus other pregnancy-friendly vitamins and nutrients (like omega-3 fatty acids and choline).

-Keep your weight gain slow and steady

-Give your skin enough time to fade stretch marks gradually on their own
