itchy spine? Caz Pallant Due July 28; 2 kids; North Petherton, United Kingdom 11 posts

Hi guys, I know it's normal to get an itchy tummy etc when pregnant but I've never had an itchy lower spine before.
My midwife has never heard of it before either.
It drives me crazy!! Anyone else had this and any ideas how to soothe it?
Thanks :)

yep i got one on my last 6 pregnancies and i reckon it was after my epi with the first one. not that it even worked properly.
it would drive me mad scratching it.

Brilliant, thanks ladies. Thought I was going mad as nobody knew what it was.
Do you think that would effect me having a spinal as I'm suppose to be having a c-section.
