    Over the weekend my tummy has become so so itchy and very sore 'cos its waking me up in the night but now even my belly button seems to itchy as hell....

    is anyone else getting this??

    I'm guessing it's from my skin stretching a little and my sister said i'll get more sesitive to washing powders etc

    I've used some Bio Oil and it seems to take the itchyness away....anyone suggest anything else??

    Please say this is common!! :blush:

    My tummy has started itching - I don't remember feeling this itchy this early with #1 but I know its the tummy getting bigger, making room for your LO. Bring on the stretch mark cream!

    I vaguely remember using cocoa butter first time round but wouldn't have a clue which one!

    My skin gets really itchy too. I find cool showers followed by lotion or oil really helps.

    My belly gets itchy too...I just rub plenty of oil in when I feel it starting...try not to scratch it (easier said than done!)

    I've found it! Its Palmers Massage Cream for stretch marks with cocoa butter :) :)

    It really helped with the itching and helped with the stretch marks too!

    I'm afraid it probably last on and off for the rest of your pregnancy hun and it is perfectly normal. I have it in every pregnancy and this is my 4th baby. The only thing you can do is massage body butter or a heavy moisturiser into in regularly. I do it about 6 times a day!

    Me too, Iv got a really itchy tummy and boobs. Iv been using moisturising cream just so it keeps my skin soft and hopfully it wont start flaking off with all this itching!
    Also Iv found that having a cool bath/shower helps too!
