Is there any medical condition that causes a rash during pregnancy?

I noticed this evening that on my entire body there is a rash developing, it looks as if it were under the skin, not bumpy, like if you were to sit in a hot bath too long, the red splochy look your skin gets. If anyone has any Idea what it could be, any info would be much appreciated! I cant get into the doctor till monday and I am very concerned as to what it could be! (by the way it doesnt itch or anything)

Oh my gosh! I have that too and have had it for more than a month. Mine is itching though. It flares up and goes away periodically, and my dr says it is most likely hormones. ugh. I hate it.

I think it's called a PUPS rash. I've never had it but I feel for you guys. It's another one of those wonderful side effects of being pg.

NOO!!!!!!!! OHHHHHH you're both lifesavers!!!! I've had that on and off since the first MONTH of pregnancy! It's mostly gone right now, but I know it will be back. <IMG SRC=""> Arghhh. I can't believe you mentioned it. Thanks so much. Mine is down in my crotch area on the inside of both of my thighs. Not the most attractive place for it. I don't know what the hell it is, so I'm sorry I don't have an answer, but thanks for letting me know it's not just me. With pregnancy-related complaints, that alone can be all the comfort I need. <IMG SRC="">
