I am only about 10 1/2 weeks along, and my lower belly is itching like crazy! It's driving me nuts!!! It seems too early to be due to my belly needing to stretch, right?
A couple of complicating factors- I have lost 18 pounds due to nausea and vomiting, so I can't really tell if my belly is growing. If it is, there's still plenty of fat rolls there!
Also, I have to give myself injections of Lovenox (blood thinner) twice a day in my belly, so I guess the itchiness could be due to that. It's also because of these injections that I am hesitating to spread a bunch of goop on my belly- I don't want to push anything INSIDE with the needle when I'm doing the injections.
Anyone also have this insane itching this early along? What did you do?
