3 am and up for 2 hours...

this may turn into the miserable part of the pregnancy if Im up every night itching. Up until thursday night I felt so perfect...Im hugely disappointed its turned into this! I will be so grumpy for the last few weeks to a month and that is not what I want. Everytime I lay down still I cant stop itching. Sigh.... oh well. vent over

Ok it's almost one AM on the west coast and I've been itching for over an hour straight. I'm about to pull my hair off. It only happens when I try to go to bed!!!!! I'm going to lose my mind.
My dr recommended Benadryl, but I don't have any in the house.
I'll just have to itch and suffer.
Im sorry you're dealing with the same problem. What on earth are we going to do?

Oh you poor women!!! I hope you can both find some relief! It's so weird that it only happens when you try to sleep!

mine is not only at night...I def itch during the day...it just seems a lot less. I think it might just be you still have to do your thing in the day time....and if you are taking care of kids, cleaning, cooking....there is a lot less time to be thinking about the itching. At night when you are laying still....its the only "input" your body has....and you can pay 100% attention to it. I even tried to go to bed really late last night hoping exhaustion would let me sleep....but I only slept from 11:30 until 1 and I was up....boo hiss!! Oh well....I know it wont last forever and it could be worse!! Smile

UGH, I cannot imagine. I'm so sorry. My belly is itching like crazy, but I know it's only because the skin is stretching so much. But I can't stop scratching it. Nothing else itches though. I can't imagine being awake itching all night right now. I hope you find some way to get some relief soon!

That sounds miserable! I'm so sorry!

I hope you find some relief ASAP. Would an oatmeal bath or something soothing help?

I hope you get some rest!
