Itchy legs
I'm on my third pregnancy - 9 weeks - and my legs have been incredibly itchy, starting a week before I found out I was pregnant. Is this at all related to being pregnant? I never had this with my other two but I can't stop the itching - especially at night!

ME TOO!! I have dry skin, and nearly always have on my legs during the winter (I'm from the north so it's bitter cold here now), but I have never experience itching like I have these past few weeks! I keep a cool lotion next to my bed and put it on my legs if I can't sleep from the itching.

I had that with my first pregnancy. If my skin is dry I use a little coconut oil on my legs before I go to bed.  But I had that itchiness for a while and eventually it went away after a couple months.

Could be your body's reaction to faster growing leg hair? That sometimes happens in pregnancy.
