im almost 16 wks and i know itching is normal..but my entire body itches, literally from the bottom of my feet to the top of my head. its so bad that IF i wasnt a nail biter, my body would be completely torn up and bleeding from me scratching so hard and for so long. Its so much worse before i go to sleep. I dont have a rash or anything. does anyone know what this is and what i can do to make it better? ive used different lotions, tried different soaps..nothing works and im worried because its SO BAD!

I would definitely try bathing in the Aveno Oatmeal bath. :) I find that helps when I itch. IF your feet and hands are itching, it could be Pregnancy Cholestasis... it's not very common and can be treated and their are different forms but it definitely begins with extreme itching of the botton of hands and feet...
Itching is common in pregnancy though. I get days where I itch EVERYWHERE. A lotion or bath with oatmeal/milk works really well. :)
