    finally made it but i have been itching like crazy

    oh i am finally in the home stretch....i am 29 weeks pregnant....oh but i have been having horrible itching on the backs of my legs and is very annoying because every time i sit down i feel like i am sitting on pins and needles or it feels like i am getting little electric shocks...i don't know if this is due to the itching or due to my sciatica acting up...kind of hard to distinguish sometimes...but have any of you had these weird sensations on your buttocks or the backs of your legs? I always had very dry skin before I was pregnant but I guess it is has been exacerbated by the pregnancy...i have tried everything from oatmeal bath to cocoa butter....don't know what else to try....any tips ? other than that, everything is good...still haven't found out what my baby is a boy or a girl... the ultrasound last week showed my baby in a breech position so my doctor couldn't tell...hope to find out soon...congrats to all you moms to be or moms to be again...

    I am NOT looking forward to the itching at all! I know its coming though. I have been taking baths everynight and I know the water can dry you out more but man it makes my sore body feel better lol. So I guess it's a pick your posion type thing. I also have sciatica nerve pain from my herniated disk so I feel ya on that one! Just keep lotioning up as often as you can. Try baby oil too, especially after shower.

    coconut oil helps me for a little while but then the itchiness starts up again...I cannot wait for this baby to get here so that the itchiness goes away
