Congratulations!
You should be going back to the doctor for a check-up in the next couple of weeks... you should probably give your doctor a call about the itchy problem. as for the stretch marks, there are some creams that you can purchase that will help to lighten them & your doctor can recommend the best & most affordable ones for you.

hello and congratz first off give your stretch marks a few months to lighten, the discomfort might be if you had stitches? if not and you are itchy and have discharge then it could be thrush but i would say just wait until you have your 6week check up because by then you will have healed better and will be feeling back to normal. But if you are in alot of pain then go to see your doctor.

My girls are almost a year and the stretch marks have faded a lot. As far as the healing give it the 6 weeks. Make sure you keep the area well rinsed, and if you have a lot of discomfort don't be afraid to call your doc.
