Im am 34 weeks and in the past few days I started itching all over so bad that it keeps me up at night. Its really bad on my hands and feet and legs and back but pretty much every where. Does anyone have this problem or know what it is and what to do about it. I called my DR but he is out of the office so they told the on call dr but they havnt called me back yet.

i'm 33 weeks and they told me that it's probably due to swelling and when the swelling goes down, the blood starts flowing and it tingles. I wake myself up clawing my legs and tummy

Try getting some colloidal oatmeal from Aveeno and just rub it into a paste in the shower.

I also really like aloe vera--Aubrey Organics has a 98% aloe vera that is easy to use if you can't be bothered growing an aloe vera plant.

I have that too...my dr didn't think it was too big of a deal. I use the bendryl cream and that clears it right up.
My dr did say if it didn't go away that I could try steroids. I forget what he called it but it wasn't too important he said.
