OK, so as I have been eating like a pig eating well to ensure my babies have enough nutrients, my thighs are rubbing together and it hurts!!! What to do - any miracle cures / ideas (apart from eating lettuce for the duration?!)
I think talc may be the answer!
You can get a 'chafing' (sp?) gel to stop the rubbing it's in a yellow tube but can't remember the name sorry. Or invest in some cycling shorts!
Hehe talc has become my best friend!! although I need to work out how to subtly reapply during the day....
talc- and when desperate and if outer wear allows- mens boxers. the shorts stop thighs touching- and therefore no more rubbing!
Right, I'm off to buy me some talc!! At least with a winter pregnancy I wouldnt have run into this one
Body Shop have a lotion which turns into talc.
Aveeno liquid talc is good.

Lanacane chafing gel - sold in Sainsburys etc - fab!
Thankgod I'm not the only one with this problem. I thought I'd have to avoid dresses for the summer!
I've been to Boots and found the Lanacane anti-chafing gel - genius stuff. I now have trotter feet, sausage fingers and chafing thighs - oh the joys!
Is this actually pregnancy related or just due to weight gain?I lose weight when pregnant. <smug>NB I'm obese so thighs rubbing together is nothing new.
In my case - weight gain due to eating like a piglet and doing no exercise because pregnant! The trotter feet and sausage fingers are pregnancy related swelling though.
