In brief: Pregnant and Itchy

Severe itchiness in the second or, more commonly, the third trimester can be a sign of intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (icp), a liver problem that affects up to 1 percent of pregnant women in the United States.

In brief: Yes

Most of the reasons are not serious such as dry skin or pupps.
But a more serious but rare cause is cholestasis of pregnancy. There is no rash and the hands and feet itch the most.
