Stretch marks tend to be concentrated around the areas that store the most fat and do the most stretching.

What Causes of Stretch Marks ?

Your chances of getting pregnancy stretch marks depend on a number of factors. Family history makes a difference-if your mother got stretch marks, chances are you'll have them too. Ethnicity is another matter - women with darker skin are less likely to get stretch marks. Weight gain and weight loss can also change the magnitude of your marks. Be sure to keep yourself hydrated, as this will help your skin stretch.

What To Do for Prevent the Stretch Marks ?

The chances of getting stretch marks can be related with many factors. Genetics play a major role in whether or not you will get stretch marks. If your family got them during pregnancy, you may be more likely to get them yourself. Besides of genetic history, other factors include: ethnicity/skin tone (fair-skinned women tent to get them more), nutritional history (a sensible diet helps skin to stretch better), skin condition (dry skin tends to be less elastic than well nourished skin) and the amount of weight gained during pregnancy (also how rapidly it was gained). If you are carrying multiples, carrying a large baby, have excess amniotic fluid or are naturally thin or small- you may have a higher than average incidence of stretch marks.

Preventative measures will help reduce the degree of stretch marks you experience after birth. Gaining no more than the recommended amount of weight and gaining it slowly may help reduce your chances of getting them. Rapid or excessive weight gain will only compound the problem of stretch marks and likely cause you to have more in the end.

A sensible diet containing plenty of fruits, vegetables and leafy greens is a must. Excellent nutrition is vital for your developing baby, but it also contributes to the strength and health of your skin. Eating foods such as those high in vitamins C and E, zinc and silica will help your skin to stretch better and also help your skin to bounce back quicker after giving birth. Drinking plenty of water and taking your prenatal vitamins are also critical for beautiful skin and a healthy baby.
