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
Alexa @alexa, your husband has serious business with your boobs o. 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.
Holla!! I didn’t get scanned o, I told my husband cos he came to get me from work and he pretended as if he didn’t hear me so I know how to get one by myself tomorrow most def!!! Have told someone to help me get the original oil, seems to me like I feel movements sometimes but at 17 wks and a first timer, i don’t want to be too sure. @oluwakemine @nicole
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
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…
Holla!! I got the scan😁😁😁, great outcome, we r doing good, she did say ‘teas too early to tell sex at 18wks, I will patiently wait na, also got the local ori and olive oil and it seems like ‘was right on time cos my stomach itches like mad now, my mil says I shouldn’t bcos it causes stretch marks but I don’t get the connection rily, I have however tried not to. I’m running out of normal pants to wear to work , help!!! @nicole @oluwakemine
