Stretch Marks :(
I have a ton of stretch marks, I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations of lotions/products they have been using to fight off the itchyness! I seem to itch everywhere.

I have stretch marks from my belly down to below the pants line... and on my thighs.

I also have a lot of stretch marks all over. I know they will never fully go away but have been successful at curving the itch (which has been everywhere!) by using an oil I bought at a local health store. It's called Mother's Special Blend. It was a bit expensive ($20 for 8oz) but has been very moisturizing. Just in case you need the website, it's Hope this helps you!

Re: Stretch Marks :(
I've tried SEVERAL products throughout my pregnancy and like Burts Bee's Mamma Bee's Belly Butter (sold at Motherhood) the best. Its pretty thick so I use it at night and then use Palmer's bath and shower oil ($5/bottle-Walmart) after showers in the morning.
Stretch marks have held off till just this past week, and even now only around my belly button, so it might be working.

I SWORE by this stuff -- it's pricy but worth it.

I'm not in this ddc but I had good luck using Palmer's oil with my last baby. Its like $10 at Walmart. Its an actual oil not lotion. I think its skin therapy oil :) I didn't get any stretch marks during my pregnancy except for like 4 around my belly button. And I went to 41 weeks and ds was 9.5lbs.

I used coconut oil this pregnancy and it helped the itchiness a ton.
