    Default Itchy everywhere?

    Hi,

    Im 34 weeks and this only started happening today but it's starting to get quite irritating.

    Anyone else experienced being itchy in different places all over there body? It started with my tummy being abit itchy, then it started happening everywhere, but only one spot at a time ( so I scratch and itch on my leg and once that stops I need to scratch in another place etc).

    I've read it can be because of the liver? But I'm not sure.

    Eta - I can't see a rash or anything visible.

    I would definately go get checked. It could be affecting you me the baby. It might be cholestitis. My friend had it and had to be induced.

    Cholestasis is very dangerous to both you and bub - PLEASE get checked out.

    Its a liver disorder late in preg and can cause multiple organ failure (leading to death) in you and quickly cause still born in your baby.

    My skin is itchy and a bit dry just because of hormonal changes, I've been using dermaveen bath and shower oil which is sooooo heavenly!

    Definitely get checked for cholestasis I had it with my twin pregnancy and had to have a c section at 36 weeks. It's just a simple blood test 😊

    I was very itchy when pregnant but not over the top, I used lots of moisturizer and that usually helped

    Get it checked out by a GP not doctor google.
    It COULD be the liver disorder which is really serious OR it could be NOTHING related to your pregnancy. BUT please get it checked out ASAP!!

    Update- I spoke to my midwife, I'm fine and it stopped, must have just been irritated from this awful weather!

    Thanks for the advise
