I didnt get a maternity one in the end, I got one that was from Bershka, it fits now but also has room for growing bump and also got a cheap one from matalan kids section! This one is for when the bump gets too big for my other coat.

ladies what creams/lotions and potions are you using for stretchmarks ? and how often are you applying them?

NLH I have bio oil and 2 different Palmers creams but none of them make a bit of difference :( I'm not applying every day now because they aren't doing anything and I'm not itchy or sore, but I think that will start soon and then I'll apply every day.

I need a coat too. Tried a Red Herring one on in Debenhams last weekend. Had room for bump but was a bit snug already on my boobs but I don't tend to do coats up as they're always tight! It's more for my mum's benefit as she's become obsessed with me having a warm coat ready for winter!
NLH I just have the palmers stretch mark cream and try to do it twice a day but it's on the greasy side so often I don't have time to let it settle in the morning before I get dressed. I've had a couple of recommendations for Mama Mio cream (which they do online or in John Lewis) so might ask for some for my birthday in a couple of weeks. I'm rubbish at remembering to use things though - there'll be some weeks where I do it 3 times a day and then I'll forget for 3 weeks!

LD I got a beautiful coat from Mango that ties with a belt. It's not a maternity coat but just one that has plenty of space. My bestie actually bought it for me and she was sticking jumpers inside it in the shop to make sure it would be fine once I get to full bumpage! I didn't want to spend £100 on a coat that I couldn't wear afterwards so at least I know I'll get good wear from this one next winter too.
NLH I've been using a boots sanctuary range mum to be collagen boosting body butter. If nothing else my tummy is exceptional soft! Ha ha!

Thanks for the tip SP.
NLH - I've been using bio oil. It's a bit greasy but I only put it on at night whenever I remember to do it.
