3 Bumps

I've got ichy bumps....?

I've been getting some little ichy bumps on my tummy lately. They're like little popped pimples. I haven't changed anything about my daily life so I don't think they are hives. Although I'm prone to getting rashes.... I don't have another doctor's appointment until the 27th. Should I worry and go get seen very soon? Or is this just another part of being pregnant?

  • I got it too when i was pregnant. It's normal. My doctor gave me something to put on it because the itching was so bad. It's been years tho, so I don't even remember what it was called...might want to ask about it.

  • I got a bad rash while I was pregnant and again right after I had her. My doctor attributed it to hormones and gave me a steroid which I refused to take because I wasn't sure of the safety and he couldn't give me a straight answer. Once the initial birth hormones wore off, I never had it again. I am 23 weeks with my second and so far no rash, knock on wood, but its not an uncommon side effect. I would go see a doc if you want meds for it or start to experience any other symptoms like fever, difficulty breathing, etc that might indicate that it is an infection or allergic reaction of some sort.
