My computer is going down frequently thanks to a virus so I'll probably miss the birth. I'm thinking of you though!
Thank you! Yes, I am just ready to be done now. The itching of the belly skin is by far the worst thing ever. My skin is so stretched it is cracked and bleeding. Thanks for checking in on me though!

Ouch, that sounds terribly painful!!! For me, it was the numbness in my hands and arms. It got really bad at the end. I couldn't feel my hands at all when I woke up and most of the times my arms to the elbow. That cured with birth and I was SO grateful!

Oyin Handmade has a great whipped shea & Vit E body butter. Gosh I love it! Have you tried that on the belly yet? I can definitely tell the days I don't use it...I do it in the morning and at night.

Oh, and if I'm super itchy, I lube up and cover with saran wrap so the lube won't come off on my clothes!!! It keeps my clothes from making it itchy...and keeps me from scratching (which just makes it worse).

ARGH...I just checked and their site is down for maintenance. I need some too. I order it online, just www.oyinhandmade.com, and I think it is $10 for a jar of it.

I goop it on, let it melt a little, and then rub it in. It reminds me a little of fresh butter in terms of consistency. No real scent to the one I have but I think you can get it scented. I was just worried that the already sensitive skin there would get irritated by any additional scents.
