Super Dry Skin During Pregnancy - Cocoa Butter? Coconut Oil? Anything Richer?

HI Moms: I'm 6 months pregnant with baby #2, and although cocoa butter seemed to make my belly happy for pregnancy #1, it doesn't seem to be doing the job anymore. My skin is literally peeling off and getting scaly in patches! Happily, no stretch marks on the belly, but is this the precursor?
