The Final Stretch

with 0 Comments

I am proud to report that after 9 1/2+ months and counting, I have zero stretch mark badges of honor on my belly. Now while this could be attributed to simple genetics and the fact that my mama had good genes, I'm also giving credit to another mama, Mama Mio, the amazing pre and post pregnancy skincare line that I've been using religiously since week 8.

With a promise of "no nasties" and a celebrity mom following that includes Jessica Alba and Princess Kate, Mama Mio was my first choice and hasn't disappointed. It comes in butter or oil form (I preferred the oil), slathers on easily, dries quickly and smells yummy. It comes in cool new and improved no drip packaging since I bought my first bottle over 7 months ago, but rest assured, it's still the same good stuff filled with super moisturizing coconut, almond, argan and rosehip oils.


I'll be continuing to use this holy grail of prenatal wonderment up until my due date and even after baby arrives, to keep my tummy moisturized while it shrinks down to size. I will also keep it in the family and invest in Mama's other skin soothers and savers while breastfeeding with their Boob Tube and Keep Calm Nipple Balm. Oh joy.
