Thanks for writing to us.
The itching that you are feeling is due to the cholestasis associated with pregnancy. You can take a mild antiallergic after consulting with your gynecologist to control this symptom. Taking vitamin B complex supplements will also help.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
