I am in my second trimester and I keep scratching my body all day. What's happening? Is this normal?

Itching might be due to the increased blood supply to the skin and also because the skin on your abdomen is stretching. If you have itching: - Regularly apply an unscented lotion or moisturiser. - Wear clothing that is loose and comfortable and is less likely to irritate the skin. - Try to wear clothing made of natural fibers, such as cotton, which are more breathable than synthetic materials. - You may find that calamine lotion helps, but do ask your doctor before using it. If you experience more severe itching, it is important to consult your physician. Your doctor may perform a set of liver function tests (LFTs).
