Hi, im 38 weeks pregnant and have terrible itching all over my body, mainly my legs, ankles and top of hands. i ve had this since i was around 30 weeks, it only happens at night, at the same time everynight (around 8pm/9pm) and keeps me awake and fidgety till around 5pm when i get so tired i just fall asleep. my hands, feet , ankles and wrists are also badly swollen which has just started accuring in the past couple of weeks, even when i put my feet up for a few days it doesn t go down... whether this has anything to do with the itching i have no idea! it s getting worse as my pregnancy progresses, it s really getting me down and very tired. What could this be?
