So since this pregnancy started I have had a small rash on my hip.. Which has grown these past weeks and is super itchy!! Especially if I get hot or sleep on that side. Now it is showing up in other shops my lower back, under my breasts huge back of my shoulder blade. I use hydrocortisone but it's not doing anything! My OB referred me to a dermatologist and I have an appointment Wednesday, but has anyone else had this happen?!

So far nothing with this pregnancy but with my last I had a rash referred to as PUPPS.  It was super annoying and went away shortly after I gave birth.  I got it later in my pregnancy though.  Here's a Wikepedia link with some info.  Does yours sound anything like this?

I hope it eases up a bit!
