I was reading in a maternity book yesterday that it is common to get itchy in the first trimester. I can't remember if they said your breasts in particular will get itchy but they did mention your abdomen, hands and feet and say that it is quite common. If continues to be a nuissance you could definitely bring it up with your dr.
Not sure where you live...but are you in a dry or cool climate? I have a horrible time with dry skin and it affects me all over!
Perfectly normal. Do not scratch! It may be a wives tale, but they say if you scratch, you are more likely to get stretch marks. This applies to all parts of the body. Try to find a cooling lotion. Something with aloe. No idea if it is true, but I am not going to risk it!
For my first pregnancy I had THE ITCHIEST nipples! I had no idea I was pregnant so I noticed something was weird when my nipples seemed to be itching for no reason I've read that it is a pregnancy symptom, and I think it has to do with the increase in blood flow. This pregnancy I didn't have that symptom nearly as bad as last time. Last time it felt like someone rubbed poison ivy on my girls!
My nipples started getting itchy at about 6 weeks and haven't stopped! They also started cracking a lot. I put Vaseline on them twice a day now and it makes a really big difference! I don't think it means that they're growing though as my boobs have stayed the same size from week 12 to week 22 but they've been itchy the whole time.
