I only see my dermatologist when there’s a problem (and I’ve seen him twice in the last week!), so it never occurred to me to inquire about stretch marks before Alex was born. It turns out that if I had, he would have recommended applying a product called Albolene during pregnancy. Albolene is used as a makeup remover in show biz – it’s like Vaseline blended with moisturizer. If I have another child, I’ll be liberal with the Albolene. In the meantime, I hope this information is helpful to someone else!
