  • Go do the dishes.... or something to refocus you mind. you might be thinking about it too much and just need to get your mind off it. Good luck.

  • Haha I was wondering where....ummm idk, I'm 22 weeks & haven't experienced that. Maybe drink some cold water or do something else to get the baby moving, it might help.

  • This is a cute question and you got some really funny answers. Thanks for making me laugh ladies. Maybe if you had sex it would shake your belly and make it scratch it's self. well i will be fun if that doesnt work. good luck. i like the have the baby scratch it. lol

  • I spoke to my OBGYN and she told me, my stomach was stretching and that was why it itched. so I took 2 Tylenol s and put a cold can of soda in the area, the baby moved and it was over . Thanks anyway guys. I am so surprised no on has ever experienced this.
