    I had it on my belly but it was because of the stretching. I made myself have an infection from scratching so much. Sometimes pregnancy can make you allergic to things. I would talk to youre doctor and have it looked at. I used to love popcorn it was my fav snack. If I eat it now I get itchy all over. If I keep on eating it I get hives then it gets worse. So I took that as a warning sign and stopped.

    Here is a link about it in pregnancy. Mine in my case was an allergic reactiuon yours can just be hormones but its best to ask.

    Hi just looked in my PG book and it says this about itching:

    "mild itching is common in pregnancy cause of the increased blood flow to the skin. In late pregnancy the skin of the abdomen is stretched and this may also cause itchiness.
    itching can, however, be a sign of a more serious problem called obstetric cholestasis. If itching becomes severe, or you develop jaundice (yellowing of the whites of the eyes and skin), see your doctor.
    Itching which is associated with a rash may also need treatment if it is severe."


    Did not want to worry anyone at all, just thought that may help?

    Headaches are common in pregnancy, I got them really bad, they faded though. But they are sometimes associated with High blood pressure but since you are in the first trimester it is unlikely to be this, I reckon. Try taking a Paracetamol. Should help. :)
