  • I had that!! It has a name & I can't remember what it is, but it's a pregnancy thing & it will go away as soon as you have the baby. People thought I was crazy until the doc. said what it was. Creams never helped me, they made it itch more.

  • Could be Pupps or Cholestasis possibly..... Talk to your Dr. at your next appointment, b/c Cholestasis is a liver condition that would need to be monitored by your Ob...but like the PP said both conditions go away after you have the baby.

  • With my first it was the PUPPPs rash, which did go away soon after I gave birth. It is HORRIBLE though and nothing can be done for it except to give birth. I have started getting the same itchyness this time around too. Sheesh, can't win the lottery, but I can get a condition that is like 1 in a Million! LOL! Go figure!

  • I had the same thing! It was terrible!! I couldn't sleep and I used tubes and tubes of hydrocortizone cream!! My husband thought it was ridiculous. The only thing that made it go away was giving birth!! I feel your pain!! I wish there was some relief for you!!
