Welcome to healthcare magic,
Candidiasis can cause itching in the above areas and it is very common in pregnant women. Try clotrimazole 1 % cream twice a day over the affected areas. Keep the area dry. Lactic acid containing liquid washes are available in the market to wash your genital region during bath.
Hope this helped,
Take care
