Ugh it is driving me crazy!  The past two days I have been so itchy, my scalp, my arms, my back, I don't know what's going on.  I have heard that pregnancy can cause itching and dry skin due to hormone changes and such but I can't stand it.  I'm about to take a flea bath or something lol.  Is anyone else having this, or should I be worried?

I'm not itching that bad, but I was scratching my arm and hand some when I saw the title for this post. My back itches during pregnancy, but that's because I get acne on my back. Coconut oil may help or other lotions, especially those medicated or those for eczema.

 I am itching horrible and thought it was just me.  My thights, the under part of my upper arm, my tummy and hips, all of it to the point I want to dig my nails in as deep as they can go!  I been trying to stay moistureized which made me feel greasy, I'm using baby powder and it is actually helping.

 Hormones. YUM!

I use lotion loaded with Vitamin E.. or Vitamin E oil, iself.  It helps A LOT... and I avoid scented or dyed soaps, because they irritate my skin during pregnancy.

I'm kind of freaked out cause I've been googling of course and came up with cholestasis which can cause itching during pregnancy and be serious if left untreated, ugh why can't any symptom of pregnancy just be because your pregnant and not have other causes to worry you!
