Pregnancy Problems

Pregnancy problems can range from things like stretch marks and cellulite (which Robelyn Labs can help you address) to depression, sleeplessness, bed rest, diabetes, pain, swelling, and more. We are not physicians here, but we do have some veteran mommies, and we do our research. Your doctor should ALWAYS be your primary source of information, but we think it's also helpful to see what some others have experienced, and how they dealt with it.

I am 35 weeks into pregnancy and have a really itchy rash on the belly?

This is the most common itchy rash of pregnancy, affecting about 1 in 160 pregnancies. It develops late in the third trimester, tends to stabilize as the pregnancy progresses, and goes away with delivery. The cause is unknown and no increased risk of other conditions has been found in the mother or her baby as a result.

What's more, when the researchers tested cord blood, they found that women with the highest levels of theobromine, a byproduct of chocolate consumption, were nearly 70 percent less likely to develop preeclampsia compared to women with the lowest levels.
