Thatīs funny.. I wish you all the best during this pregnancy.. I am excited about Christmas time. My little girl is ready to put up her stocking and she says Santa Claus will bring her a car is she goes to bed early.. I have to talk to her day care about this.. not sure where she got the idea from (She is 2).
Anyways.. yes use lots and lots of cream.. the goo from the aloe plants are great .. lots of vitamin E with helps your skin to rejuvenate (sp?) allowing the healing process to take place instead of it getting worse.

Ha ha Amy_Oglesby!!! I have joked about this as I know I'll be having a c-section this time - "While you're in there, do you think you could tighten things up a little bit!?"

Thanks for the lotion advice - it's worth a try - and if nothing else, baby will love the massage!

DONīT ITCH!!!!!!!! Is the best advice I can give. Jus tload globs abd globs of cream or baby oil. Creams that say enhance elasticity work the best... PLEASE DON'T ITCH!
Mine were itchy during the 4th month when stomach started to grow.. but I didnīt itch(or tried not too. I would smack them.. sounds crazy but it is the worst you can do and now I am not itchy at all.. I keep the lotion on my belly and am praying not to get any more.
My 1st preg. I gained almost 40 pounds during the last 2 months and nobody could believe I got that big. Docs thought bay would weigh about 9 lbs, and she came out weighing 7lbs(normal!) It was all water weight.. off the subject just praying that I donīt get that big again and get more stretch marks. I am going to get a Tummy tuck once I save the money.. any of you thinking about doing it??

The stretchmarks above and below my bellybutton are shining purple at me again.....oh yay!!

I have been very itchy on my sides, but it's just itchiness.

I'm going for my first ultrasound (I'm 19 weeks) on Thursday and then I'll be going in again 3 weeks later (cross my fingers that my doctor okay's it as I've booked the appt.) to get a 3D ultrasound with the CD of pics!! I'm VERY excited.

Hi girls I've a belly full of white marks lol from my son he was 9ib 9oz and I never felt him move or kick much cause of all the fluid I carried as well I'm hoping this one will be smaller (had no epi just gas but a very very fast labour)

I'm 19wks now and I've neither lost nor gained any weight I'm due in the doc's on Wednesday and my second scan is on the 14 of December can't wait for that I'd say I've about two weeks max left in my own clothes and then it's materinty wear from here on out

I'm plastering the palmers cream on my skin it's not itchy at the moment just at my bikini line that's all at the moment I'm hoping oh goosh so hoping I don't get them back as bad as with my son

I have thought about using Aleo vera gel on my skin once I start to get them what do you girls think of using it my thoughts are that aleo vera has a natural healing power in it and it just might help reduce the redness or the sorness of them I'm going to give it a try just wondered what you thought about using it

With my first I had him Vag with an epi and had no prob. pushing him out. But my lil girl I had no idea nor the dr that she was that big so I went thru labor like you can still every contraction with the epi and I pushed for hours in every position known and the vaccum she was not comming down. So I had to have a C cause nothing else worked and once we all saw her we could see why.

Did you have a c-section? Mine was pretty much natural.I did have an epi., but i could feel everything!I could move my legs, so i knew i didnt get enough med.The doc. said im measuring the right size, but he also said that the last two times.

Our babies weighed the same at birth. I too got a belly full of stretch marks. My skin Is itchy but so far I dont see any new ones. But for having a baby under 9lbs this time will be a miracle since Im already 3 weeks bigger than my due date so Im prepping for a 11-12 pounder.
My luck

Hi. I have had 2 previous pregnancies and my stomach is starting to itch on the sides.I have alot of stretch marks. I dont think we get more unless the next baby is bigger than the one before.My 1st baby was 8lbs 12oz, and second was 10lbs. 6 oz. i know i got more with my second.Hopefully this baby will not get any bigger than 9 lbs.

Hi everyone. I was wondering if any of you who have been pregnant before had old stretch marks that were getting itchy. I'm not as big as I was with my son at this point but, the stretchmarks I have from when I was pregnant with him are starting to itch, and they have been on and off for about a week now. I was hoping not to get any new stretchmarks with this pregnancy, but I'm wondering if the itching means they're about to crop up.


Mama to 3!
