IM CURRENTLY 6 WEEKS PREGNANT AND AM NOTICING THAT MY BELLY BUTTON IS VERY ITCHY. WHY? DOES IT HAVE TO DO WITH MY SKIN STRETCHING OR IS THE UMBILICAL CORD STARTING TO FORM?
I AM ALSO GETTING SLIGHT HEADACHES, IS IT DUE TO CHANGES IN MY VISION(I WEAR CONTACTS)OR AN UNBALANCE IN HORMONES?
Use some mosituriser, I find that helps. The chiropractor is great for headaches. As an athlete I used a chiropractor when ever I had a bad full or my knee was hurting or headaches and it always worked. I havent been since Ive been pregnant I think Im a bit scared to and cant really afford to at the moment.
I would suggest giving it a shot.. It's natural, and there's a whole slew of information out there about how good it is for pregnant women to go to a chiropractor (even some research indicating easier deliveries)...
I've been seeing a chiropractor for a long time, and when my spine is in the correct position, I don't get headaches.
-I'm so thankful that someone recommended Chiro. to me.
(Not to sound like a commercial, but it's helped me alot).
i had extremely severe headaches the first 4 months and all they could tell me was that the rising level of hormones makes the bloodvessles in your head constrict a bit causing pressure. Mine were so bad with this preg i ended up in the er twice, on top of morning sickness that left me over the toilet 6 hours a day..hope yours isnt as bad
It's normal for your symptoms to vary, yes. I had nausea for only the first week or so (so far). And everyone is different about how their body reacts to pregnancy! You are probably a bit bloated, and maybe thickening around the waist a little. I know that even though I've lost weight since I found out I'm pregnant, my belly likes to pooch out more than normal after a meal, and if I'm wearing tight pants it's uncomfortable. :)
I am 6 or 7 weeks. and my belly button is EXTREMELY ITCHY TOO! don't listen to people that have their rude comments. :) my pants are sooo uncomfortable. wear sweats!... and i get headaches every now and then. doctors say reg. tylenol is OK! :) good luck with pregnancy!
lol i was told an old wives tale, if you're belly is itchy you're having twins. my belly was SUPER SUPER SUPER Itchy. i mean it drove me nuts my first trimester....i had twins. lol. and my headaches were KILLER!!!! thank god for tylenol.
