Is my face blotchy like this because of the pregnancy Im 14 weeks? Or is something wrong? It itches abit, but its flat not a raised rash! Its a bit worse than the pic shows...its more red

 Edit: its started to get flaky now, under my left eye, and on my left cheek.....Im going to call my ob as soon as i get off work, Im calling him about that, but also my left hip has been hurting so bad, it hurts to walk for about 3 days now, maybe hell see me 2 weeks early?. Thanks ladies


Update....Well my ob isnt in the office today, so of course the on call told me to go to the ER....Idk what they could do for me there, give me a bendryl shot, and thats all....they cant xray my hip or anything. I dont feel this warrents an ER trip. Am i Wrong?

I agree call your dr!! I broke out like that and it was an allergic reaction to something... *source still unknown*

I am not sure Amber.  I would go ahead and go to the doctor.  Please let me know what he says.

If its an allergic reaction I'm pretty sure its safe to take Benadryl - but your doc will tell you that. It could be your skin is dry and sensitive due to pregnancy. Try a moisturising mask tonite and see if that helps.

I am 11 weeks along and have noticed I have extremely dry skin now that itches like crazy. My coloring is off as well. I use Victoria Principle's Principle Secret. (cleanser and day and night moisturizers) Works wonders BUT I sometimes am lazy and just use Aveeno daily moisturizer which makes me feel all silky and moist.
