    I'm only about 4 weeks pregnant and have noticed that my stomach is starting to itch all the this normal? Maybe it's just my imagination but I don't remember my stomach itching so much. Is it cause it's getting ready to grow? :grin:

    My belly itched like crazy in my third trimester - I still have some of my Burt's Bees Mama Bee belly butter ready to go! I think it's pretty normal.

    the itching is normal, but make sure you get a really good moisturizer, because your skin will get dry, and then here come those damn stretch marks.
