If it itches it could def be puppps, like beckcorc said. I have it as well. I didnt know it had anything to do with pregnancy, but i mentioned it to my dr incase, because she was going to see it at my appt anyways, and she just said that it can be common, and its not going to hurt anything...other than the fact that you are going to be itchy. She said it can spread, thankfully mine really didnt, just more bumps on my stomach in the last week or so, but thats it. She also said that nothing will "cure" it except delivering the baby. lovely. lol. Ive been putting cocoa butter on it sometimes in the morning, and sometimes at night, and it seems to help a little.
as for what causes it (IF this actually is what you have going on), my dr said that its caused by an increase in estrogen or something in your system. I haven't looked it up any further, but thats the info i can give on it.
