Hi, its my 1st pregnancy too, however i have read that when the baby grows inside the body starts itching and its normal, so you need not worry! If it irritates u a lot, then u can ask your doctor about it.

It is common for itching to occur in pregnancy. I will say to look out for itchy soles of feet & palms of hands as that can indicate obstetric cholestasis which can effect your liver, and could cause some concern for you & baby. I would tell your midwife of itching on your next appointment so you can have bloods just to rule it out.
