little red bumps

I am 26 weeks pregnant and for the last week or two I've noticed little red bumps on the top of my belly...a few even look like little zits...Anyone else have anything like this? I also have some bumps in between my boobs....

    Hey I found this great link with 4 types of pregnancy rashes. I thought of PUPP immediately when you said that, but I think that is usually in your stretch marks.

  • There are many dif kinds of pregnancy related skin rashes besides PUPPS. Most are completely harmless- but you should have your obygyn check it out anyway- if they are concerned they'll send you to a dermatologist for a proper diagnoses.
