I am just past the 8-month mark woohoo… And my belly seems to be big as ever. But people ask me if I am 4 months… or? But I feel great this third trimester and the growing belly skin needs love. When I’m soaking, the belly is over the water line and really needs its own type of TLC. I used a lot of various oils like sweet almond, coconut and shea butter but sometimes I just want to opt for the convenience of a pump lotion that absorbs quickly. Here are my top picks for a belly lotions to try!
