Hey hun. You aren't being silly at all hun. It sounds quite normal to me. I know my tummy itched quite a lot all though for me it was nearer the end of the pregnancy when i was stretched a lot. You will probably find it is down to your skin stretching to accomodate your growing tummy. If you are concerned or it gets really bad all over itching then tell your MW hun as it can be a sign of a liver disorder you can get in pregnancy, but it doesn't sound like that to me at the moment. May even be something like the wasjing powder you use is irritating you? You can become more sensitive to things like this during pregnancy. My bet is on the stretching though! Hope this helps.

Hi. I found it really soothing to put my moisturiser in the fridge so it was so cold, then rub it on my belly-SO SOOTHING! Just something simple like Baby Lotion or a nice natural fruity cream like a body butter

Your skin is stretching. You should use body lotion on your skin to prevent itch and stretches.xx Flower

Mine itched too. I also used lotion and found that it relieved it. If the itching gets severe, check it out with your MW as I know it can be a sign of a problem but as I recall, it's got to be itching all day and driving you to distraction to be an issue! Hug

Yep same here, the lotion really relieved it!

I'm still getting it now - apparenlty it's the 'stretched skin' and MW has just advised to carry on using the lotion!

It's flippin annoying though isn't it!

i have abit more stretch marks now so am thinking it must be down to my tummy skin stretching...

am fair pleased now as i only realised today that i can now see that ave gotten bigger. after all a few people have told me this over the past week or two.
