I got really itchy all over during my first pregnancy and it is already starting for my 2nd pregnancy. I used cocoa butter.

It is normal because your body is absorbing more water and your skin is stretching even in your legs. Drink more water, LOL! And use baby oil or Olive oil on your skin, it helps to soothe it and the oil also helps to reduce stretch marks! No scratching that is how stretch marks are formed a lot of the time! Rub gently and oil every time you itch!!

i think its pretty normal. use moisturizer to help ease some of the itchiness. if its severe talk to your doc cause i know that all over itching can sometimes mean trouble with your liver which can lead to problems for you and your baby. hth!
