I'm 33 weeks pregnant and I feel like my skin is going to rip on my stomach. Has anyone had this happen to them! I also feel like my belly button is going to rip open. I did not have this happen with my first.

Mama Stacey :), I can relate! I use bio oil on my stomach and wear a pregnancy support tank, both seem to help a little with the pressure and my general comfort level! But there's def days where I feel like I have no where else for this baby to go (currently just shy of 36 weeks) Hang in there mama! πŸ˜€

Brita H do you think this is a sign of stretch marks?

Mama Stacey :) that’s how I felt when my stomach got really tight. I was worried about stretch marks and my skin getting dried out and I didn't want to get itchy (everyone says itching causes more stretch marks). And I was also just really uncomfortable! The oil really helped my stomach and belly button feel better!
