You maybe want to mention this to your midwife or doctor as sometimes in pregnancy you can develop itchiness which is caused by problems with your liver. It is rare but a simple blood test can rule it out. I was incredibly itchy with my second pregnancy and my blood work came back fine it was just a case of skin stretching and cream was prescribed for me x

It could be PUPPP rash. Google some images and see if it looks similar. If so call your doc and he can prescribe special cream to help with the itching.

I have severe itchiness at night all over my legs and sometimes other places. But no rash. I would def ask your dr about the liver test. Is it super itchy in the bottoms of your feet?
