Itching due to pregnancy?

My arms have been itching all day like I was allergic to something and having a reaction to it. Then it just happened not too long ago on my thighs. I'm not allergic to anything so I don't know if its associated with being pregnant or something else?

  • Yes, it very much can be due to pregnancy. Something to bring up to your provider because it can indicate intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy. It can also just be something that happens to you during pregnancy, but you want to make sure it's not an indication of rising bile levels due to the aforementioned conditions. (And if so, have proper evaluation/treatment.)
