In brief: Stretch marks

I know of no effective way to prevent stretch marks.
.. It just comes with pregnancy and if there was an effective way to prevent this, everyone would know about it by now.

In brief: Moisturize

Stretch marks are genetic, there is little you can do to prevent them if that is the skin type that you have.
Some lucky women never get stretch marks. Keeping your belly moisturized 2-3 times a day can help to minimize their appearance.
