Congrats! You're pregnant! And that gorgeous bump holds the most precious thing in the world - your baby! As your bump grows it will also be responsible for the  “mommy scars” or stretch marks - and may just stay with you life long.

Stretch marks naturally tend to fade to faint while others may remain dark and prominent. Doctors suggest  that the best time to treat stretch marks, is when they're still appearing.
