Did anyone have itchy stretch marks postpartum?
Hello everyone! My daughter, Daphne, is now one week old. I delivered her via cesarean and my recovery has been very easy. I don't have any back pain, and the abdominal pain is tolerable. I've been able to breastfeed with no problems so far and my daughter is gaining her birth weight back. So far, things are great. DH loves his precious girl and took two weeks off of work to spend time with her and help me. Daphne herself is an easy baby with few fuss fits. No problems, right? Wrong! My formerly pregnant abdomen is very ripe with stretch marks. I knew that I was blessed by the Stretch Mark Fairy before I gave birth, so it wasn't too much of a shock. They itched before, but nothing compared to now. It is so bad, it is almost painful. Does anyone have any recommendations for creams or lotions that can ease this discomfort?
