Hormones: This early in pregnancy, the problem is probably due to poor hydration (you need 3-5 glasses of WATER daily) and/or the hormonal changes in pregnancy. If the problem persists, see your OB doc and tell him/her. Cholestasis of pregnancy causes severe itching of palms/soles esp at night. Can be a serious issue in pregnancy. Let your doctor know.
