  • Yeah. Just stretching/dry skin.
    Use a thick lotion, like Aquaphor or... Palmer's Cocoa Butter, Jergen's works really well too.
    Or just any lotion and apply liberally. :]

  • It's your skin stretching; and it only gets worse! I'm 23 wks and my belly still itches. you need some good cream to put on your belly. My friend just got me some "lay it on thick" by true blue spa from bath and body works; it seems really good. And my belly hasn't itched today lol

  • Yup...and its probably going to get worse. Get some lotion (the good stuff) and put it on a couple times a day. If that doesnt help try benadryl cream or even taking benadryl.
