Day 47: Itchy and Scratchy

Itchy and Starchy. That’s what I have named them, since it is normal that skin is expanding, stretching, and drying out – and hence they are now called Itchy and Scratchy.

Boobs itch. That’s a thing during pregnancy. Apart from snoring and nonstop farting (and my friends blaming me for all the farts even when it’s them), there’s also striae gravidarum – stretch marks – but I am glad there are no rashes!

Now, for relief? One word: Moisturise.

Cocoabutter, coconut oil, and if the nipples are extra irritated – yogurt and turmeric paste pack. Actually helps!
