Stretching!

Sometimes I feel like my stomach is stretching and getting bigger from being pregnant, its gets really tight and uncomfortable and I have sharp pains. Has anyone else went through this?

  • The stretching is completely normal. It will be very uncomfortable and itchy.. as for sharp pains, you may want to contact your ob/gyn or midwife. Palmers makes a great cocobutter formula for pregnancy to help with the itching and reduce the appearance of stretchmarks (nothing will prevent them but can help) Put lotion on at least twice a day. Hope this helps
