I will be 19 weeks tomorrow, and lastnight I started with the most uncomfortable and annoying itching on my bump. Today I woke up, and I know have it in the crease of my arms too.

Im currently overseas in Turkey, but have been here 2 weeks already and lastnight was the first time Ive experinced this. My arms and belly are bright red.

Could it just be from the heat, or might it be pregnancy related? Im going mad with it!

Prob pg related, or at least I had it.

I was prescribed Piriton, but I would think you'd want to talk to your GP / mdiwife before taking anything.

I think there are some home remedies. Bicarb in the bath rings a bell. Someone will probably know.

Plus also when you are back you should probably check it out with your midwife or GP just in case.
