I had this around the same time.. It preceeded extreme growth in breast and nipple size...

I had this from very early on, and only went away post 20 weeks. Its awful!

Things that helped me:
- Wearing a good comfy bra (yes it looks like a sports bra but who cares!) I wear the bravado silk bra.
- Wearing breast pads - in case I get the urge to itch it doesn't harm my nipples and it means I'm surviving on one bra blush
- Use lanisoh cream every day
- Moisturise my breasts everyday (I use Mamma Mio Breast cream but you can use anything)

Hope the above helps! smile

I'm 18wks 3days and my boobs are driving me INSANE!!!!!! I embarrass the boyf as I've got two hands down my top at every given opportunity. Yesterday I freaked a cyclist at some traffic lights when boyf gave me a lift home...

I'm 19+4 and some nights I wish I could run a razorblade over them as my hands don't get to the itch enough! Clearly I don't, I just keep slathering on the bio-oil in the hope it subsides..

Mine did this but then it went away! No idea why - just another delightful pregnancy symptom I guess! sad

Am currently 15+3 with dc2 and my boobs and nipples are itching like crazy! Anyone else? This is normal right?
