My sister in law just added a niece to my family yesterday.  She was scheduled for a C-section first thing in the morning (she had to be at the hospital at 5 am).  However, they ended up having to push it back into the afternoon.  Anyway, she had Georgia at 2:48 pm yesterday.  She was 8 lbs. 2 oz. and 20 inches long.  Bill and I are going to go see the baby tonight.  We wanted to give her some time to recoop, and Bill didn’t get home from work till late.  Again.

Now, if you have ever met my sister in law, you’d know she is normally tiny (yes, T you are even if you don’t believe it!).  An 8 lb. baby isn’t huge.  However, since Georgia was her second baby, you tend to get a little bigger the second time around, and T definitely looked pregnant.  I don’t know if she got any stretch marks, but I know with my kids I did.  When I was pregnant with Madison, I didn’t get them until 2 weeks before I was suppose to have her.  Needless to say, I was not happy with it.  With Will, well, we won’t even discuss it.

There are many products out there to help with stretch marks.  I consider mine badges of honor you get when you have kids (I know, just keeping telling myself that!).   When I came across All About Stretch Marks this morning, I was impressed.  They have a ton of information that I never even knew about stretch marks.  They also review several of the products on the market for stretch marks.  The key to not getting stretch marks is prevention.  They have a great list of advice that can help with not getting them.  However, as mom of two kids, you can follow that list, and you still may end up with them (see above with my pregnancy with Madison).  I don’t think there is a product on the market that will completely get rid of them.  However, there are several creams out there that can fade them, so they are less notable.  All About Stretch Marks is a great place to learn about stretch marks.  If you are looking at trying to get rid of yours, I would definitely do some reading on their site.
