pls see ur ob/gyn....ur doctor. if u don't know why it's happening it's always better to ask a doctor instd of others. there could be various reasons like allergies to food, meds, the clothes u wore, sweating, or sometimes it happens in high b.p. or hi sugar. hence I suggest u see a doctor.

I don't think there's any problem in this. Your body undergoes a lot of changes, and a bit of itchiness is common. For more details on how your body reacts when it is in the second trimester, you can even refer to this article. https://zealthy.in/topic/sixth-month-of-pregnancy

Hi mommies im also at my 14th week pregnancy. So far po wala po akong mga itchy parts sa katawan. Depende nlg pag mag kumagat na lamok or langgam hehe. Ngayon lang po talaga halos araw2 akong nag sesermon sa dalawang naka babatang kapatid ko :( masama diba palaging galit? Hays nako.

Just tell your doctor and try to test for liver enzymes..theres this thing called obstetric cholestasis which is a serious condition during pregnancy.. its symptoms is severe itching.. precautionary measures only..hope all is well..🙏🏼

I am in 3 Rd trimester n keep getting itching specifically at night which keeps me awake . So my gynaecologist adviced me to take cetrizine . It’s allergy medicine n I can say it helps me for reduced effect but whole day I feel sleepy n tired due to this medicine .

If you are having severe itching.. All over the body.. Then I would suggest you to get your LFT done.. This could be because of raised ALT ALP and SGPT.. If these are raised then its a bit citricaL for baby.. This could be fatty Lever

The skin around your belly is stretching to enlarge the tummy growth. Skin can be dry and uncomfortable. Apply belly oil or creams to moisturise the skin to reduce any discomfort. Don't scratch, the skin may be further irritated and damaged.

You can easily get those over the counter stretch mark cream/ lotion/ oil. Some common brands will be Palmer's, Bio-oil. I've used brands like Mustela, Gaia, Weleda, Clarins. I apply lotion in the day time, and oil at night time. Do it after shower, when your skin is still moisture for easier absorption by gently massaging it.

Symptoms po yan ng pregnancy, kahit ako mommy, nadaanan ko yan lalo na ngayong nasa third trimester na ko, buong katawan ko ang kati, pero mas ramdam ko yung kati sa tummy ko saka sa dede, mawawalan naman po yan lahat after daw manganak.
