itchy nipps!

I'm 8 weeks and my nipples really itch all the time what can I use to relieve the itch?

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would wonder about two possibilities--the first would be simple dry skin which might respond to a standard body lotion such as Eucerin.  The second thought I would consider is candida--for this you might want to try one of the over the counter yeast products such as Nystatin cream.  Monistat might help too.  If you are not getting relief--your doctor might be able to provide a script for Diflucan which is safe during pregnancy.
Good luck!
