  • Probably not, Your should get you doctor to take a blood test and see what your allergic too, your baby could be giving YOU allerdies.

  • i had something like that before when i was that far along into my pregnancy, i think its normal bc your skin is tretching.

  • Ah... lovely hormones. I did that a little with my 2nd child.

    Search for outside irritants (soaps, perfumes, lotions) that you have introduced lately and see if tehy could be causing it (stop using for 2 weeks to see if they are the cause). If not, then it could be those lovely hormones working on ya. :P

  • The change in your body chemistry could be making you sensitive to things you aren't normally sensitive to (perfumes, soaps, lotions, detergent..etc.). You can ask your doctor but it sounds pretty normal to me.

  • What??? That's crazy that you're experiencing that! I'm 11 weeks pregnant and my legs have been super itchy for the past three days. I'm scratching and scratching, and lotioning, but they still feel itchy!
    I hadn't even thought that maybe it was related to the pregnancy. This didn't happen with my first pregnancy. Yeah, it stinks, but I'm right there with you

  • I've read about this in a few of my pregnancy books, and it is related to pregnancy and you shouldn't be alarmed about it. I'm 15 weeks along and I'm having the same thing as well.
