I'd say so, Stephy!

Personal question...do you use soap on your breasts? Soap dries skin out, so the more you use, the drier your skin will be, increasing itchiness and the chances of stretch marks. You can try using lansinoh already, or some other lotion to help soothe the itch. Otherwise, having been around the block a few times and had it recommended to me (and avoided stretch marks through 4 pregnancies), use soap only once a week. Your stomach and breasts aren't as dirty as the rest of your body gets, so it's perfectly safe to cut back on soap use on these areas to cut back on itching and stretch marks.

Think I've popped a bit too. 24 weeks vs 28 weeks. At 25 weeks, my uterus measured right on for dates and yesterday, I'm measuring at 31 weeks (28 weeks now)

Hi all! I am due July 22nd and we are team pink!! Already have a little boy who is 3 years old so cannot wait for him to meet his little sister!

I had the GD test a few weeks ago and thought the drink was awful, I think drinking it on an empty stomach made it even worse. Thankfully it my tests came back all clear, I was terrified I may have to do it again!

Thanks for the info! I've been using Aveeno itch relief body wash and cream - it's helped a lot! But I will start to do what you recommend

I think you've popped a bit too!!

Nice! I'm coming down today, actually. With my son not being able to have dairy anymore, someone told me to go to Costco and I can stock up on almond milk and other dairy free items. My mom lives in Kitchener so she's taking me tonight.

Going in this coming Tuesday afternoon for our 3d scan, which I'm super excited about and can't wait! We haven't seen her since our 20 week scan. I'm anxious to see how much she's grown and exactly what she's measuring and weighing now.

Here's some pics of my bump's progression...the first two pics are 23 weeks and the second two are both from last week(27 weeks). I feel like I'm REALLY popping out now and I'm so sick of people asking me "Are you sure there's only one in there?!". Yes I'm sure, lol.
