hi! I'm 7 months and I itch more now. The itchyness comes more from the stretching of your stomach; also, we know not to "scratch"--you are to only rub--stratching causes more damage to the skin.

Hey girls =) I also broke out with the cocoa b___ter lotion.. it didn't seem to quite help me anyway. BUT! I did find something else that you might try.. it's a little jar called "tummy hunny" and it is AWESOME! it's not lotion based, so it didn't break me out. It smells really good too. I ordered mine offline, and it has seemed to do wonders for me, so I will leave the website for you =) I hope this helps!! *summer*

the itching is from your skin streching. Try the Palmer's Spray Oil. It works really good, It is for dry itchy skin. You put it on after you get out of the shower and it helps!!!

I'm 33 weeks, and have itchiness everywhere! My tummy is covered in a bright red rash, and I have little itchy red bumps other places. The doctor said "the skin does wierd things when you're pregnant" and not to worry. I've got some cortisone cream for my tummy to help with the itchiness. I alternate between applying vitamin E to stretchmarks and anti-itch cream to rash. It's a never-ending battle. Good luck to everyone- our babies will be worth all the itching!

I doubt scratching makes strechmarks worse.... but don't know for sure.

I am 39 weeks, I had that too.. Most of the time its just the skin stretching but, once I started itching on my b___st area, and on my ribs, I also had a rash that looked red a bumpy, My doctor told me that a lot of pregnant women get it, and the best thing for that is keep it cool, and put anti itch cream on it.
