Itching in Late Pregnancy

Cynthia Flynn's picture


Dear Midwife,
Please help! I am 36 weeks and 6 days pregnant with my fourth child. I believe I am in labor because I have been contracting for 2 days now every 15-20 minutes.

I suddenly started itching tonight starting with the tops of my feet and now covering pretty much my whole body. I have not broken out or anything, just severe itching that I cant control. I am not able to sleep or even relax, it is so uncomfortable. Is this due to me being pregnant, in labor or just plain weird?

Thank you,
