    I'm not sure entirely, i think u can get itchyness which is normal but i think if it gets seriously itchy it can be a sign of something. it's in my wee bounty book i'll go have a wee look for it.....

    it says "your skin may be more sensitive than usual and the abdomen can itch as the skin stretches. If u start to feel very intense itchiness around this stage (27 weeks its on), all over your body, including your hands and feet- where you can't stop scratching or scratch so hard that the skin bleeds- tell your LMC

    Just writing that up has cleared it for me abit too- so if it's a wee bit itchy then thats ok thats just the skin stretching :) x

    I was itchy all through my 1st pregnancy.. think it was because I was growing most in the winter and the dry skin stretching itched. I took baths in aveeno bath powder every night and it helped lots!

    I was suffering with really bad itchiness and was sent for blood tests to rule out liver problems. They asked if I had itchy palms or feet as well as my bump and boobs as apparently that can be a sign of liver problems. Thankfully it looks like my rash and itchiness were caused mainly by an allergic reaction to Palmers Cocoa Butter for stretch marks and stretching skin. Midwife recommended I use Aqueous Calamine until the rash cleared up then switched to normal aqueous cream (it's around £1.50 for an enormous tub) to stop me from clawing at myself. I am still mildly itchy but am no longer all scaley/scabby and the aqueous cream makes my skin so soft and has certainly stopped the worst of the itching. Hope this helps.
