Dry skin

Has anyone else noticed SUPER dry skin starting early in the pregnancy. I'm 9 weeks tomorrow and my arms and thighs and face are always super dry.

Coconut oil is my life saver! Stops the itch instantly, and keeps it gone for a good while. At least for me anyway. I've also noticed that it helped with my stretch marks as well.

I am having really dry skin too it's horrible. We have been hoping for a girl (I am 8 weeks)  so I hope it's true!

I would love to have a little girl!
I put lotion on my skin all day long and it doesn't help. I should look into some baby or coconut oil.
