Hello, I hope everyone is doing well! Does anyone have any itchiness on the sides of their br___ts? Mine have been itching occasionally but I don't know if it's just dry skin. Also, where I have been itching there are little purple lines...is this normal?

I feel your pain, mine are constantly itchy! It helps at night if I put on Belli Oil (it's from Belli Brand cosmetics). The smell's a bit strong, so I use their lotion (actually a stretchmark reducing lotion) during the day. The lotion helps some, but normally they'll end up itching again around 2pm. Maybe keeping small bottles of lotion and putting that on when they itch? It could be awkward to do at work, but may offer some relief.

Thank you.....I am only 4-5 weeks...is this normal? How far along are you?

Perfectly normal, sweetheart. Your b___sts are growing because of pregnancy. That stretches the skin and causes those purple lines (those are stretch marks!) They will fade to a little bit lighter than your natural skin over time, probably sometime after pregnancy. Lotion will probably help a bit with the itching, its worth a try.

I'm 12w2d. My bbs went up a whole size in by 6w. I'm now a 34dd! I hope they slow down soon, since they're getting SO heavy! at least my dh loves them. Not looking forward to them getting even bigger with b___st feeding.

It is normal. Your b___sts are itchy becasue they are streching out. The purple lines are stretch marks. You may also get them on your belly once you get bigger :(
