I'm 37 weeks and over the last 2-3 days my nipples have been infuriatingly itchy!!!! They are driving me INSANE!!!! grin

It's not a problem at home, I just sit there and scratch them or rub my palms over them to relive the sensation but when I'm out in public it's not quite so easy.... grin

I'm pretty sure my question is rhetoric - I'm just venting!!!

It's so, so, so annoying!!!!!!

I have the same problem! I'm 22 Weeks and have had itch boobs for ages. I have to take toilet breaks just so I can itch my boobsblush

Line your brassiere with sandpaper and adopt a jaunty gait.

I had this the other day I had my hand bag on my left shoulder and with my right hand held the strap. Which meant me crossing over my boobs to reach keeping my arm there. Give it a quick rub and it did the trick. I also had a nice dressy scarf on so I hope no one noticed lol

Soggy cold flannel to cool them down and reduce itching... bliss!

I itch my boobs so much at home, I get worried that I'm going to accidentally do it in public!! Pretend to itch your shoulder and use the friction from your arm to itch said boob. Or just pretend to forget that your in public, whoops, preggo brain!!! .:-)

LOL ahh this is yet to come for me. But I can imagine how annoying that must be.
I'm far from discreet so I would probably just have a good scratch regardless x

I with the just do it in public crowd. No one will be willing to face the wrath of a pregnant lady just to comment on a simple nip scratch.wink
