im 9 weeks pregnant and for 2 days have been getting bug bites. but when i scratch they end up hives and when i manage not to scratch the swelling goes down. its only on my belly. a little on my back and a tiny bit right above my under arm. the hives are lighter than the skin around bc it is completely red. i dont know what this is!!!!!! ive googled and the pregnancy rash doesnt seem to be it. nothing matches except straight hives and it says it could be caused by the hormonal changes. i have a four yr old daughter and a 2 year old son. neither of them caused hives. their father is my ex husband this baby is my fiances. what is this and whyyyy meeeeeeeeee????????? oh and i cant go to the doctor until monday because i have my other 2 kids until then and no babysitter. :( please help!!!!

Benadryl is safe! Take some if you have any.

Tale some Benadryl and a cool bath. Getting in cool water always soothes my hives and makes them go away quick. If you are not comfortable submerging yourself in cool water get a washcloth wet with cool water and just lay it over the affected area. Good luck!

Benadryl is safe while pregnant... i don't know if hydrocortozone is though.  Benadryl also makes a topical cream you could use. also safe.

i dunno if its possible but maybe theres something in the prenatals your allergic too? i know allergic reactions to normal meds can cause hives. I hope your doctor can help ! 

i also heard its possible to be allergic to your placenta, but i dont know how much of the body it affects. and not sure what is done for it. just read a glimpse of it one day a while back, never dug into it. i truely know nothing about it. i just remember reading it.

Some say that the PUPPPS rash is an allergy to dad's DNA in the placenta. PUPPPS is miserable.
