I used to apply body shop body butter cream.. for itching .. and bio oil at night
I don’t think anything you apply externally should harm the baby inside

The itching is normal you can apply any moisturizer but it does not help consult your doc.

Apply aloevera gel ... i used patanjali aloevera gel (good for summer it keeps the area cool) or try coco butter vaseline moisturizer even u can ask dr. they too suggest some cream...itching is normal
