I just picked up a new bottle of my favorite pregnancy oil and am so excited to start using it again!
Is that weird? I'm excited to slather on some oil?? I suppose it sounds a little odd, but I used it almost the entire time I was pregnant with C and didn't have a single stretch mark after he was born. It's a little hard to find in stores but my local Whole Foods special ordered it for me and I had it in three days.
It's by Weleda and until recently was called Pregnancy Body Oil but has now been renamed Stretch Mark Massage Oil, which I find a little less appealing. Name aside, this stuff works wonders and I highly recommend. I will warn you that the bottle does tend to leak if you travel with it and it bounces around in your bag, so I usually just leave it at home and take a travel size tube of heavy moisturizer or stick of coco butter with me while I'm away.
Here's the info from the Weleda website...
