Is it normal for me (15 weeks 6days) pregnant that i am having a terrible itching problem?

Is it normal for me (15 weeks 6days) pregnant that i am having a terrible itching problem for the last 4 weeks!? On both legs, hips,bossom, back, and arms, pretty much every place, except my face and my scalp. it is so bad that it keeps me up at night, and i scratch until i bleed. and the scratching relieve only holds on for a very short time.And i know it's not fleas, because i would have found them by now. I wash my bedding regularly, and shower often.

What can i do? How can i stop the itching? And I don't dare to use creams against the itch, i could buy over the counter, because of the pregnancy.

Thanks for reading
Miriam

  • You can use hydrocortisone cream, which is safe during pregnancy. But I would make an appointment with your doctor to hemp you figure this one out. Good luck!
