  • I think that itchy nipples is the worst thing about being pregnant right now! It happens all the time when I'm in public..... I make my husband stand in front of me so I can scratch where no one can see! haha.

  • It's all due to your hormones. If you get excessive itching any where else be sure to bring it up to your doctor because it could be a sign that your liver is not functioning properly.

  • They're probably itchy for the same reason your stomach get itchy...they grow and it stretches your skin out.
