I'm probably just totally paranoid but I've been getting itchy breasts/nipples - is this normal in pregnancy? (can't remember this from last time).

I'm now pregnant again and have been wearing my old nursing bras as I have no other nonwired I thought they'd be ok. With my daughter I had thrush for ages and couldn't shift it. Is it possible the thrush could still be on the bra or is that just daft? (She's 2 btw and I got rid of the thrush when she was about 5 months).

I doubt it very very much!!!

I too had itchy nipples when pregnant-tis very annoying!

Thanks, I guess I am just being paranoid. There's just no way I could go through all that again though.

Best way to deal with it is a good whack of Fluconazole. Worked for me after weeks of misery pissing about with diets, creams and so on.

Don't think you can take fluconazole while preg...

When bra damp from wash put it in the microwave, not sure for how long ,but will definately kill thrush. Works with nappies and knickers too
