It’s no surprise if you feel itchy
As soon as you become pregnant, hormonal changes lead to skin dehydration, making your skin feel tight, rough, and itchy. Those with naturally dry skin feel this discomfort even more intensely. In addition to your new chemical balance, your microcirculation slows over the months, leaving skin more irritable just at a time when baby’s growth is putting its elasticity to the test. Indeed, your belly is the site of the worst itching, right where most stretch marks appear. If itching spreads to other parts of your body despite a thorough moisturizing routine, talk to your doctor, since in rare cases this can indicate a liver problem.
