I'm 21 weeks pregnant and in the last 2 days my body has become very itchy. Soothing creams don't help. Do you have idea what it could be?

At 21 weeks, it is most likely that your itching is linked simply to you being pregnant, and the altered skin sensation that this can cause. It is really too early for cholestasis of pregnancy; this is a condition that affects your liver. Do you have a rash? If you do, you could have a viral infection or some sort of skin sensitivity to detergent, washing powder or cosmetics (your skin does become more sensitive in pregnancy).
