Itching is a common pregnancy complication and it is usually due to stretching and changes of the skin. Sometimes you need medications for symptomatic relief. This does not adversely affect babies. Rarely itching can be a symptom of a condition called obstetrics cholestasis which affects the liver. In this condition itching is mainly on palms and soles. Your doctor usually recommends some blood tests if he suspect obstetric cholestasis.
