  • It could be many things. A friend of mine used the same laundry detergent that she used for years and when she was pregnant, all of a sudden she broke it in a rash all over. Her skin was super sensitive to anything with scents and dyes during pregnancy that everything that touched her body and to be scent and dye free, such as detergent, shampoo, body wash. I would still call your doctor and talk to him/her about it. I could be something else.

  • Call your doctor. I got yeast infections really bad when I was pregnant but no rash like that. Also, if your fairly big you can get yeast infections in the folds of your skin. It could jsut be dry skin too. But call your doc, he's probably seen this a hundred times. And at 15 weeks you can ask a pharmcist for some safe antihystimines to help with the itch. You might have an allergy (no not to the baby lol).

  • Look into the PUPPPs rash. It's a rare thing, but it will happen during pregnancy. And, unfortunately, there is nothing you can do except anxiously await the birth of the little one. Google it and you can find info on it. But generally you will get it on your arms, legs, hands, feet and abdomen. I had it with my first and am now getting it again with my second. Yeah for me! LOL
