If your entire body is itchy you need to see your doc/midwife.

 LOL...I thought you were talking of the scratching all over the belly...the stretch mark itch. 

An allergy to something?

Your whole body or just from the skin stretching?

I tried coconut oil and cocoa butter and they helped some but not much.

And I agree with PP.... if it's more than just a belly itch it can be a sign of other problems.

I've always been told it's normal and due to hormones. Some people get oily skin, some get dry itchy skin. I too have the dry itchy skin, I use coconut oil and almond oil.

If it is constant it could be something more. Both of my sisters had cholestasis of pregnancy. It had to be controlled with medication and didn't go away until they gave birth. They were itching with objects and even that was not helping out. Ask your midwife to check your blood if it is persist.
