I'm getting itchy skin where I'm beginning to stretch (14 weeks). I've started putting cocoa butter on right after the shower and that helps, it makes skin more elastic.

I had itchy feet and hands.  It was maddening.  My doctor had me apply Cortaid over the counter to it.  I just tried to stay busy but it is hard.  I'm sorry you are having this itchiness.  Here is an article to see if it can help at all:  http://www.medhelp.org/pregnancy-health/articles/Itching-During-Pregnancy-Your-Symptoms-Manual/2094  good luck

Thank you,  off to doctors Monday for some blood test to see if it's linked to my liver being oversized.  Fingers crossed it's just a reaction to something
