Secret Saviours Anti Strech Mark Pack – The (Almost) Final Results!

Now that we have an eviction date for baby, I thought I’d better write a stretch mark update while there’s still time! As you know, I’ve been using the Secret Saviours Anti Stretch Mark Pack since around week 22 of this pregnancy. I was a bit late starting, as Secret Saviours recommend that you start using the pack from around weeks 12-14 of pregnancy, but it doesn’t seem to have done any harm in my case.

A few weeks ago, I sized up from a medium to a large bump band as my belly grew! Again, I measured the circumference of my bump at the belly button, then used the size guide on the Secret Saviours website to see which size I needed. I must admit I do prefer to size up a little earlier than they suggest, as the medium band was starting to feel a bit restrictive.

I have to confess, I haven’t worn the bump band much over the past week or so, but this is mainly due to having so many scans and baby-related appointments where people need access to my bump! I’ve still been using the cream though, which I still love, and it seems to be doing the trick as my bump is stretch mark free! One of the registrars even complimented me on it at a recent bump-feeling appointment, which I must admit made me feel just a little bit smug!

I’m a little bit disappointed that a c-section is going to leave a scar on my currently flawless belly, but on the flip side I’m pleased that I’ll have some evidence of my mummy status (and will hopefully retain control in my lady area; apologies for the overshare)!

Anyway, here we go, the long-awaited photo of my bump (cringe!), which proves that there is not a stretch mark to be seen! Hopefully none will appear over the next week before we meet baby!



Have you got stretch marks? How do you feel about them? Would you try to reduce/eliminate  them if you could?

    So exciting that little one is so close to meeting u both…such a magical time.

    In relation to the stretch marks..I escaped with none, woopwoop! No special cream, just lucky!

      Ooh, some people have told me they got some right at the end so if that happens to be I’ll get some bio oil on them! Thanks for the tip! x

    I have stretch marks but they’ve definitely faded over time and they don’t really bother me. Although they all appeared right at the end, so do carry on using the cream right up until the birth (and after too!). Your bump is looking fabulous – best of luck with the last few days and the big day! #KCACOLS

    I have so many stretchmarks from when I was young and gained a lot of weight. Neither the weight or the stretchmarks have gone but should I have another baby, I’d like to prevent anymore so this looks and sounds fab! #kcacols

      It’s definitely worth a try and if nothing else the cream smells and feels lovely! x

    Oh look at your lovely bump! I have quite a few stretchmarks after 2 pregnancies, and they did bother me for a while, but not so much anymore. They’ve faded a fair bit, and now I do sort of feel that I earned them! x #KCACOLS

      I still don’t have any yet with less than a week to go until c-section, so I’m hanging in there! xx

    What a beautiful little bump 🙂 I have stretchmark friends as I went from 7 stone to 11 when pregnant and didn’t think or know about bump supports or how important cream is..I used it after which has helped them fade but I should have been on the defence. I hope the section goes well for you my lovely xx #KCACOLS

    Well that bump looks gorgeous and indeed clear of any stretch marks. So it looks like this pack is working wonders on you!! I didn’t get stretch marks either but I do have my c-section scar!! But is very little though. Thanks for sharing this review at #KCACOLS. Always great to have you! 🙂

      Thank you! Yes I’m hoping the c-section scar won’t be too obvious! x
