Soooooo itchy. Going nuts. Plz help.
July 13, 2013 at 4:37 AM
I'm almost 32 wks pregnant with my third. Thursday morning I started to become itchy all over my body, random spots, arms chest, belly, ears. As the day went on got worse nothing helped. Yesterday, friday, it. got even more worse. My hands, feets legs back, well everywhere. I have no rash anywhere and nothing is relieving it. My hands n feet feel puffy. I'm miserable and haven't slept bc of the itchiness. I have no other symptoms besides the annoying nausea I've had the whole time. PLEASE...Any advice or suggestions are appreciated. Plz no sarcasm or bashing. Thnx.

    You need to call your doctor immediately. There is a condition called cholestasis of pregnancy. The main symptom is itching with no rash. It can be managed but you will need to have some labs done to determine your liver function.

    I just had this with my last pregnancy 6 months ago. The itching is maddening and nothing stopped it until I was put on proper medication.

    It could be a few things. I agree with the other ladies, call your doctor.

    I could have written this word for word. I'm 26 weeks. I've had this for two weeks and it's only gotten worse. My doc put me on a steroid which is a last resort drug while pregnant. Nothing helps and I'm taking athistamines around the clock. Baths, lotions, no help if anything they make it worse. I've had swelling with mine too. I'm not just itchy but covered in a rash. My blood work shows my liver function is fine. But I definately have a rash. I'm lucky to get 3 hours of sleep a night. I'd talk to your doc. I've been in contact with mine daily and was at the office Tuesday. I go again this coming tuesday. Have them draw some bloodwork on you.

    Are you having a boy or multiples? 1% of women get pregnancy rash and 70% of them are having boys, the rest have multiples. I'm having a single girl so I have no idea what's going on.

     I would definately call your doc and make sure it's nothing serious, but my friend also had this, took a benadryl upon doctors orders and it helped huge.
