itchy from pregnancy

so, to update all of you on my itchiness...=) i went to the dr this week and she said she believes that i am just allergic to pregnancy. a lot of women have this apparently. it's more so an allergic reaction to the hormones your body produces. but for simplicity, she said, "allergic to pregnancy". i checked online and with several other sources and it IS very common. so, the only thing i can do for it is take benadryl and sit in cool baths. i use aveeno oatmeal body wash and that helps a lot. and when i am not in the soothing bath waters, i use a topical cream that was prescribed to me. anyway, 7 more weeks to go! we're on countdown! especially now that i'm so itchy! =)
