Momma to Samuel Wyatt 8/15/09 and our new addition Jack 9/25/11!
Just a public service announcement:
if itchiness in pregnancy is severe or keeps getting worse, is all over your body, or on the bottoms of your feet and your palms, with no visible rash-- that can be a sign of interhepatic cholestasis, which is a liver condition which is not dangerous for mama but can negatively affect baby, especially in the third trimester.
OP-- clearly you do not have this condition! But whenever I hear about itchy pregnant mamas, I feel compelled to put this out there, because so many very competent OBs and midwives know nothing about it, so it often goes unrecognized and untreated.
