Is anyone else experiencing extreme itchiness with their pregnancy?

My breasts and my belly are SOOO itchy.
I experienced this with my previous baby but I don't remember so early on.

I spoke to my doctor today and she was concerned that I did not have a rash but was itchy. She also said my skin didn't seem dry. She wants me to test for intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP) which is a liver problem that some pregnant women can experience.
If I had this, then they would have to keep an eye on my pregnancy and pull baby out before 38 weeks. Hopefully I don't have this as no one mentioned anything last time around. I did a blood test and I'll know the results within a few weeks.

Anyone else itchy??

My belly gets extremely itchy during growth spurts. It was driving me nuts a couple weeks ago but has calmed down now. I have no rash or dry skin it just itches like crazy. I remember it from last pregnancy. I was never diagnosed with any issues that caused it.

Like crazy! Never so much in my life, and I have always had horribly dry skin. My OB and a derm. dx'ed me with pregnancy induced eczema though. Seems like it would make sense that you're growing.

Just my belly, but my skin is insanely dry.

A girl I know has ICP, she's being induced tomorrow at 37 weeks.

I've been itchy. I developed eczema on my legs because of baby, so i have very dry patches. Also, my belly is itchy just from it growing the skin stretching. Booo

I mentioned having itchy legs today at my midwife appointment, but she said that they look out for itchy palms of hands and soles of feet as red flags.

Just wanted to update everyone that my blood results came in for ICP--and the results were negative!
I guess I'm just itchy from growing.

So glad it's not anything serious... it sounds annoying, though. I'm a bit itchy, but it doesn't sound anywhere near as bad as you describe. (Something to look forward to, perhaps? )

My legs & chest & occasionally my arms are super itchy, especially at night! I figure it's because of the winter weather drying out my skin but maybe I'll bring it up to the DR since I don't have any rashes either..
