    Are you itchy on your hands and feet? If not, then it's might be PUPPS which is common during pregnancy and won't last. It might be a good idea if You can go see your GP just in case but in the meantime try not to have hot hot showers, try not to scratch your skin (easier said than done), put sorbolene cream on any itchy parts and what I found really helped with the itch was pinetarsol. As frustrating as the itchiness may be it won't last...I had PUPPS in the 35th week of my pregnancy for a couple of weeks while it was really hot in December ... Not fun at all so I can sympathise!

    Thanks so much for your advice- I'll definitely be doing this and will get checked just incase it's so annoying! I live in qld and it's still quite warm so that wouldn't be helping things
