way back...and I do mean wayyyyyy back in the olden days...I had my first child aug 14 1970 and she is 44 this yr....ok so in 1969 through to aug 1970...I used this old fashioned coconut oil....it was in an oil form in a bottle and also in a cream form...so...I decided to use it and I loved that smell...I got a huggggggeeee belly...as my daughter was the biggest of all my kids and Im short so I have no room...she weighed 8lbs but looked like she weighed 10lbs...her bones werent big...but her head was huge....she was 22 inches long and her hair was long and man was she ready to be born...but....they couldnt get her out..so they used the long long prongs to get her out..it took me 24hrs of labor and then maybe 2hrs trying hard to get her head out...well, on her way out she broke my tailbone...if that tells you anything..I dont have baby having hips...and then they had to cut me from stem to stern...and they didnt sew me bk right.....so after this huge belly went down and became baggy for awhile then slowly it came bk to itself...I didnt know you were suppose to get stretch marks ...but I used the coconut oil in case....I never got any stretch marks....I used it for about 3 of my kids...I had 5.....I was never as big as I was for the first baby...but to this day Im 63....I dont have any stomach stretch marks...at all....
