    Any one else got a really itxhy bump? Seems to be generally OK during the day, then by dinner time it's really itchy at the sides.

    Not sure if its cause iv got over the bump trousers and I'm just not used to having something tight up so high...

    It's most probably due to the skin stretching. Try applying a good (gentle) moisturiser or coconut oil a couple of times a day :)

    Not my bump, but get really itchy shins! I had it last pregnancy too and my gyno said that the skin is a lot thinner and sensitive and to use a good moisturiser. Nothing seems to help though and I find I scratch them so much in my sleep without realising!
