  • It depends. How far along are you? If you are 37 weeks or more, you might want to get checked for cholestasis. HTH!

  • Im 9weeks pregnant and i itch all over too. I think it's because of the change in weather but it also could be because of streatching.

  • It could be hormones, or your skin stretching to accommodate the baby. My stomach itches all the time!
