    I have been getting very itcht feet and legs for a few weeks now. Does anyone know why it happens? My MW said she knows of a lot of people who actully itch their skin red raw throughout pregnancy. I just want something to ease it. When I am in bed is the worst.

    Anyone know what is good to use? I have been soaking my feet in very very hot water before I go to bed and it eases (but only for about 5 minutes.)

    Help!!!

    Try coconut oil/lotion - it seems to help me :)

    I agree with urchin, I always thought itching anywhere other than your tummy or boobs (which is just caused by skin stretching) was something to be looked into.
    Maybe you should go back to your midwife and mention OC, it's probably nothing but definately worth getting it checked out.

    My tummy has been itching for the past few days
