My bump feels as tight as a drum today, my skin is so stretched it hurts. Have been using the Clarins body treatment oil and Palmers cocoa butter for stretch marks. Have been wearing normal knickers but is there anything that I can use to support bump? Any ideas anyone?

You can get belly belt type things, no idea if they work or not though. I loved Bio-oil when I was pg (with twins), really helped the skin stretching feeling.

Does it hurt on the skin or on the inside IYSWIM?

Do you wear maternity clothes? I found the elastic gusset bit on my next trousers very supportive.
