21 weeks: stretch marks rontine

Hi! Currently 21 weeks in. I find it strange that whenever after I put oil then cream to moisturise the belly, my belly skin become normal/ slight dry after a few hours. I consistently want to reapply oil as I afraid of stretch mark. Do you feel the same way ? Or you have a routine? #secondtrimester #First_Pregnancy

Hey mama! You could continue to apply cream when you feel like it. I had a routine of using Cocoa butter in the morning (because it was less runny and I felt more comfortable with it while I worked during the day) and L’occitane almond oil at night. No stretch marks after my 3 children but it’s different for every mama. No harm in lathering more cream on - make it a bit of a fun thing too! You can speak and sing to baby while applying and massaging the cream or oil in and daddy can participate when you’re home and on weekends! Hope this helps!
