  • I'm 21 weeks, and feel exactly the same! Yes, it is due to your skin stretching, it's not fun! But it's one of the many things we must go through! I'm not sure which lotion is best, but I've just been using palmers cocoa butter..and I apply it about 3 times a day! I've also heard of people using Udder Balm which is used on cows nipples, to help their nipples when their getting milked..weird, but if it works then it's worth it! I think you can get it at Walmart even, or a farm store

  • Benadryl, My hubby is a med student and he did the research on this issue for me. Benadryl is safe to use. I still took only one instead of two and it helped.
