38 weeks and tummy skin feels ripped and itchy :(

I've just had my 1st stretch marks at 38 + 3, and my skin actually hurts and feels like it is going to pull and burst - very uncomfortable! Any tips on how to stop it feeling that way? I've put extra Mamma Mio Butter rub on, but not making a difference ... And it's also very itchy. Just beneath my belly button. Did anyone else experience the same?

Hi buttery I had this a few days ago- it felt like my skin was burning and itching on my bump. I used sanctuary stretch mark oil on it and kept leaving my belly out to air at home lol but it has been much better since x

Keep it well moisturised
Any cream really, I'd recommend coco butter or coconut oil

Bunnychan, thanks! smile Good to hear others have had it too and it's not something strange just happening to me!
