    @alexa, I was perfectly fine o. Must have been just their process. As for stretch marks, please just go for ori (shea butter). I wasted my time with Bio Oil and still got stretch marks :dohh:. It might just work for your complexion but not for stretch marks at all

    Alexa @alexa, Ori is the way to go for stretch marks and the earlier it is started, the better. I don’t think, there is anything you can do about the darkening skin, it’s just part of the drill ;-)

    Holla!! Just got back from my trip, had a whole lot planned but I ended up in a night shirt almost thruout!! Sleeping and chilling!! Plus I started getting low key waist pains , off and on now on a regular , I’m determined to get a scan done today although I have read and read and i want to believe it’s my ligaments stretching, abeg ooo! Bought palmers shea butter lotion and bio oil but have been told to go get cocoa butter cream too and olive oil even moringa oil, different folks and every they say works for them . How’s everyone been? Got the shocker of my life when I noticed black stuff on my nipples , really irritating sight but the husband said they v been there since the pregnancy, just increased and it turned out the were peeling skin from cracked nipples, seems many places need to be oiled ooo, how ees you all? Great I hope?? @nicole @oluwakemine@osedblessed @funyi

    Welcome back, @alexa hun! Glad you were able to get some rest! Aaaah, definitely sounds like ligament stretching. Don’t worry, you shouldn’t feel it as badly in a few weeks :hugs:. As for the stretch marks, heeeeen! I said ori oh! Not any fancy cocoa butter. Don’t let me show you my stomach to see what Bio Oil did to me oh…which was jack! But I reckon any of the other natural oils should also do the trick :good:. Pele about the nipples hun. Preggo body tins. Just slather up all over, and you’ll be fine   :cloud9:   :cloud9:

    Alexa @alexa, your husband has serious business with your boobs o. :haha: At least you got the needed rest.

    Alexa, ori on its own works magic, I should know. If you can’t stand the odour, add some essential oil, chamomile, tea tree or even olive oil to it and whip it up. Voila, you are good to go. Cocoa butter might work but nowhere near the efficacy of the natural thing.

    Meanwhile, did you get the scan done? Like Nicole @nicole said, it is most likely, ligament stretching. Baby is growing and needs space to do so. :heart:   :heart:

    Hmm, how did you know, he pretended not to hear you? :haha: Alexa @alexa. You are the second trimester already, so some fluttering might happen. Don’t worry, very soon, you don’t be in doubt. I can tell you that for free. :hugs:

    Which one is  the original oil anyway?

    I know na, hehehe 😂😂, he had already told me ’twas normal so he could not be bothered! Original shea butter I meant , I did mix the palmers shea butter and bio oil, will buy olive oil and mix up too, hope all these things don’t burn me up😂, one time my aunt was applying a mix of many things she ends up with a burnt face😂😭

    @alexa, feeling movement at 17 weeks is normal. Butterfly kind of feelings, right? Bless  :cloud9:

    As for all those concoctions, heeehn! My hand no dey dia oh! I hope the processed shea butter is just as good as natural. I also hope the olive oil will boost it if need be. Because Bio Oil on it own for stretch mark prevention… :negative: :negative:

    Now, I can officially welcome you to the second trimester now Alexa @alexa. The pants struggle is real oh. Scratching gets into your already stretched skin and that can cause the stretch marks to be more than it would have been.
