It's a sign of liver congestion cholestasis. It's a serious issue. Please find a good Obstetrician who really knows how to handle this and work with them. Early delivery may be indicated.

Get an Alkaline phosphatase done. It is the blood level which needs to be checked in case of pregnancy itching. In the meantime she can apply calamine lotion to reduce the itching. Dr Sachin Dalal
