Ach! It Itches!

It’s nice that the constipation has eased off a little bit. Things have not returned to normal in that department, by any means, but they have reached some sort of manageable. This was just in time to develop a new delightful pregnancy experience: itching. My belly and boobs are itchy itchy itchy. As much as I would like to, it will never, ever be OK to reach into my shirt, in a public location, and scratch. I’m assuming this is an inevitable consequence of my skin stretching. I have two concerns:

1) Oiling my skin doesn’t help with this. Ngh! Short of slathering myself with hydrocortisone cream, does anything help?

2) Does this mean my boobs are going to get even bigger?!?
