  • There is a condition that is directly related to pregnancy that affects the liver and causes severe itching all over the body but it usually only occurs in the last trimester.

    However, it can be life threatening to mom and baby so call you health care provider ASAP. If they ignore you GET A SECOND OPINION!! It could be nothing but you need to know for sure!

  • Idk but i have pretty bad itching. But I thought it was just dry skin. If its really bad go to the doctor . Hopefully its not anything major!
