Itching?

Is anyone else itching like crazy? I don't just mean my tummy...but EVERYTHING! I feel like I'm going crazy because I'm just a scratching fool right now!

That happen to me a lot when I was pregnant with Cooper, but thankfully it is not happening this time. I know the Aveeno Overnight Intense Cream really worked well for me. I used it everywhere's after I got out of the shower!! It was a real blessing.

OMG, yes!!!  I am using cocoa butter, after my morning shower and again before bed. It seems to work.  I asked my OB about it and she said that the hormonal surge can sometimes dry our skin more then normal.  Other's get really oily skin.

I have it so bad it keeps me up at night. I switched last week to Aveeno body wash and soap it seems to help. The body wash doesn't dry your skin out as much as bar soap.

I'm using Johnson & Johnson baby soap (the lavender one..I can't think of the name) and I use Aveeno lotion with Grape Seed Oil added to it. But it's not helping...AND some of the itching is my scalp...my inner ears...my butt cheeks (the part that touches...don't laugh! My DH thinks I'm 'digging at my 'hole and no amount of explaining to him changes the horrible mocking ;) )..my eyes...places that I can't really put lotion, y'know?

I just wondered if it was a part of pregnancy or if I should be worrying about something else going on!  Thanks for putting my mind at ease!
