Welcome to HCm,
Due to stretching of abdominal skin and forming of striae alba might be causing itching.
Try to control on itching otherwise there might be having chance of infection at scratch marks.
Apply some moisturizing cream on the part.
Nothing to worry, it wont have any bad effect on your baby.
This condition is common during pregnancy.
Ok and bye.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

See a dermatologist - examination is a must for a definite diagnosis, in the case of rash...

Hormones could be causative / Impaired liver function may be responsible in some / so on - get reviewed by your obstetrician

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
