I am currently 4.5 weeks preggers and have an odd question.... ever since a few days past conception I have been dealing with my hands (specifically palms and between fingers) and my feet (bottoms and between toes) being EXTREMLY itchy at night. It often wakes me up at night and is unbearable. I spend hours at night scratching and rubbing them on the blanket, etc..... Now, it is not every single night, but most. Like I said, I am very early into this pregnancy and this is not my first pregnancy so I can say this has NEVER been an issue before. I am just wondering if anyone else is dealing with this. I know near the end my hands and feet sometimes swell and such but not this early! The only thing I keep finding on the internet is something called cholestasis but from what I found this seems to be more common in the third trimester plus I really don't seem to have ANY of the risk factors for causes of it, I don't even have any of the other symptoms besides naseau, irritability and fatigue...and THOSE are all common for me in my first tri anyway! Could this be some wierd hormonal thing, an allergic reaction....?????? HELP!
