    My work colleague suffered with this and they actually monitored her in hospital once a week. Can itching be related to diabetes???

    Glad I'm not the only 1 then. I will give my mw a ring Tomo when they open back up and see what she says. I've heard it could just b down to pregnancy then I also heard it could b the liver or down to diabetes x

    All true, always best to check. With my SiL it did turn out to be the liver problem, Obstetric Choleostasis, and she was monitored, induced, ended up with a non-emergency section and was still having liver scans six months after delivery. My lovely niece is one in two weeks though :)

    I get it at top of bump where I've developed a numb spot and often my shoulders oddly enough :shrug:
