Could be your skin stretching from possible weight gain!  Try a good moisturizing lotion.

I'm almost 19 weeks and have only gained 3 lbs.  Not sure if that's the cause or not...been going on for about 2 weeks now

No 3 pounds probably wouldn't cause that :/

ive had that my entire pregnancy and it still is going on and im 40+1. it makes me miserable and my OB ran every test possible. probablly just the hormones causing it but i itch to the point where i have made myself bleed.

:( I hope this dosen't continue the whole pregnancy! Yes I itch so hard sometimes that I break the skin open, its nowhere else besides the back of my legs though, so weird!
