  • You could be developing a sensitivity to lotion, soap, a pet, really anything. Or it could just be the pregnancy messing with your skin, making it dry. Just try not to scratch.

  • An itch is the sensation in your skin. A scratch is what you do about it. The scratching causes the rash.
    In my experience it's normal and nothing to worry about, but try not to scratch. Calamine lotion may ease the itch.

  • I never had the problem, but know women who did. tell your Dr about it.

  • It sounds pretty normal. If you become really worried about it, consult with your OB.
