I’ve been using Secret Saviours Anti Stretch Mark Pack for six weeks now, so I thought I’d do a little update to let you know how I’ve been getting on. As you may have read here, my first impressions of the pack were really good; the product smells lovely and the bump band seemed comfortable enough.
So am I still wearing it six weeks on? You betcha! I must admit I sometimes feel the need to take it off once it gets to the evening, but on other days I completely forget it’s there and wear it right through from getting dressed in the morning to going to bed. With that in mind I’d say that any discomfort I’ve felt is more to do with me (fluctuations in body temperature etc) rather than anything to do with the band.
I still love the smell of the product and hubby likes it too. He thinks it smells like Turkish Delight (although I’m not sure that’s quite accurate, but he likes it!) and it’s become a bit of a nighttime ritual for him to help me massage it into my bump. It’s something of a bonding experience for him, me and baby which is really lovely.
And I suppose the proof is in the pudding… I’m still only 28 weeks pregnant at the moment and there is still a way to go (and time for stretch marks to rear their ugly head!) but so far I can honestly say there isn’t a hint of one appearing. You’ll probably remember from my last post on this topic that I was somewhat reluctant to get my bump out for the camera so I’m afraid you’ll have to wait until nearer the end of the pregnancy for photographic evidence I’m afraid. You’ll just have to trust me on this one 😉
I’ll do another update as close to the end of the pregnancy as I can manage (maybe 34 weeks? I am nervous that baby might come early!) so we’ll see if any stretch marks have formed by then or if the Secret Saviours Anti Stretch Mark Pack has continued to do its thing!
Have you been using anything to try to avoid stretch marks in your pregnancy? Has it been working? I’d love you to share your successes (or failures!) in the comments.
