I am 5 week Pregnant, and for the last week my legs (expecially my calves and ankles) get hives, and i cant stop scratching them. It get's so bad, they start to bleed. And the wierd thing is, it only happens at night. does anyone know what could be causing this? The only thing different, ive done is take Prenatles, and i dont even take those everyday.
You need to speak to your doctor about this. Sounds like an allergic reaction of some kind. its not a common symptom of just simply being pregnant. It is fairly common to develop new allergies during a pregnancy though.
In the mean time, stop scratching. Breaking the skin only opens yourself up to the risk of terrible infections.
I don't have a direct answer for you but can provide with with a start of sources to find an answer…go to google.com and search the phrase "itching and pregnancy".
I wish I had a better answer for you.
The only thing I can think of immediately is allergic reaction to prenatals. Talk to your doctor about it.
Best of luck.
I have them often. I have no clue if it's normal but i get them every nght. THen they clear up for the most during the day other than the ones i scratched to scabs. I am going to see my dr i would suggest the some for you.
