extremely itchy?

Does any other pregnant momma have random extreme itchyness. Not just in the belly are but in my arms,back & legs I have had EXTREME itchy spots. i scratch them so hard & for so long that I get blood spots on my skin. I am going to bring it up to my doctor on Tues becuase its not just dry skin. Has anyone else ever had this or could give me an educated guess of what it could be?

  • I had that with my second in my last trimester. I scrachted so hard I was bloody and had some bruising. I never got a straight answer from my doctor, he just prescribed vistaral. I had some liver issues that were found a few weeks later.

  • Are you sure it's not just dry skin? The weather is getting cooler; most people have really dry skin this time of year.
