Hi and thanks for using the forum.

Itchy skin is not an uncommon complaint from pregnant women.  Be sure that you are drinking plenty of fluids, resting and you can try some moisturizing cream/lotion (I usually try and get a hypoallergenic one) for your skin.  As always, when you see your OB/GYN let him/her know of any new symptoms that you have- they may have another suggestion for you.  Good luck with your pregnancy!
