I feel itchy.. not crazy crazy, but enough to notice it today. I put extra lotion all over my body tonight and it feels better. Make sure you drink enough and call your doctor if you are worried. Hope you feel better!

Not all over or extremely. I've got a body scrub exfoliant I use in the shower to scrub with (gets to all the itchies!! it feels so good!) and then a shea and oatmeal soap. don't remember to lotion at all.

I was putting on lotion with Finn daily (or a couple times a day), and still ended up getting stretch marks on my butt and tummy (at the very very end). This time so far, no stretch marks at all, and no lotioning.

Itching usually means you are dehydrated because your skin doesn't have the moisture that it needs! Make sure you are drinking enough water!!

PUPP you would definitely know about. There is a rash that comes with it, and your OB would most likely diagnose you at first glance. i worried about this with my last little one cause i had a rash on my lower belly, but it was not. it was just from stretching as much as i did and i was EXTREMELY dehydrated. DRINK DRINK DRINK!!!!! it also helps with contractions and it just makes you feel good@!!! i get itchy too. all over, especially when i'm hot. or honestly right after sex. its hard to fall asleep. but the cold usually makes it go away or drinking a HUGE glass of ICE COLD water!!!! good luck. it WILL go away when you have the baby.

I heard from someone that it can mean your iron is low? I was really itchy....got a call about my bloodwork a few days later saying my iron was low. Started taking extra iron and my skin is A LOT less itchy. Weird... but it seemed to hold true for me.

I will try that! I thought maybe I was getting enough water intake because I crave Ice! I chew ice all day long but not too often do I have water with it.

That is weird...I just found out this week that my iron is low and I've been very itchy also.

low iron - I thought this was causing my restless legs and OB checked it. It was kinda low, so I wanted to try to fix it with diet before I added a supplement. I started eating 1 cup of Total for a snack, and my iron has been perfect since.
So - if itchiness is because of low iron, try some total! (It's great with raisins!)
