No new soap/detergents/perfumes, etc. 33 weeks pregnant, can you take benedryl??? I am going INSANE! No bumps, no rash, not even a spot of dry skin, I just FREAKING ITCH!

  • my belly was always super itchy during pregnancy. im pretty sure that's a common symptom. however i dont know about benadryl, but your local pharmacist should know.

  • You may be experiencing your skin drying out. I'm not pregnant, but when the winter comes I itch all over because of the heater drying my skin out. I just have my SO rub me down with lotion which seems to help some.
    Like tnm said, a call to your pharmacist is probably the way to go.

  • I did the exact same thing. I looked online and found it could be something with my liver. But when I told 2 of my dr.s they treated me like I was crazy. After I delivered it never happened again.

  • I feel like I am going crazy and I have millions of mosquito bites, but I don't!

  • Double check with your doc, but when I was having early contractions, my doc gave me benadryl to help slow them down (it was too early and the BH contractions were making me miserable!!) and help me sleep.
