Dear Sam
Congratulations on your pregnancy. Unfortunately stretch marks can occur during pregnancy. From a dietary point of view there are not many options. You should consult a Dermatologist for laser treatment and Retin A which is successful in removing stretch marks, but the dr may say that he/she is only prepared to do the treatment after the baby has been born as it is not a good idea to expose the baby to products like Retin A.
Best regards
