  • I was itchy all over when I was pregnant... I'd say it's normal as your body is growing so your skin is being stretched...

  • It's normal and nothing much helps. Get a really good lotion and just Grin and bear it. It'll be over soon enough.

  • I've been itching non stop too, just random rashes all over the place... do yourself a favor and get some generic oatmeal bath (they have it at Walgreens, CVS, Wal-Mart, etc) and some Benadryl cream, it is also safe to take Benadryl tablets... at least you can have a little relief!
