So of course my heat stroke experience on Friday wasn't enough, but on Saturday evening I broke out into hives. From an unknown source (No new food, bath product, detergent, etc was introduced that day). I had been a little itchy all day but nothing notable, and then BOOM, the evening comes and my stomach and back just break out in these little white bumps, and it spread to my chest, wrists, and upper thighs. It was absolutely miserable! Fortunately I got the all-clear on taking allegra, and had some witch hazel and calamine lotion in the house to alleviate the itching.

I've only ever had hives once, back when I first found out I had become allergic to dogs (my bff's dog was licking me and I broke out everywhere she licked, and my throat started to close up). So, I'm not sure what the allergen was, but I saw online that "pregnancy hives" are a thing that is more common in first pregnancies. It was all cleared up the following morning (no residual itching or anything), so my question is: should I call my MW office to report it and see if they have any concerns, or should I just wait until my next appointment (july 1) to bring it up? I'm kind of a easy-breezy person so I'm more inclined to wait to say anything, but didn't know if any of you had experienced this before and it's something I should be concerned about.

And for those of you who might get them: witch hazel and calamine lotion are fabulous, cold showers help reduce swelling, and keep some benedryl or allegra on hand

Ugh, that sounds miserable! I don't have any advice but I just wanted to say hope it doesn't reoccur and thanks for the tip on the witch hazel and calamine. I should get some so I have it just in case.

Hives suck. One of my twins gets them often. Most recently an allergy to antibiotics and she swelled so bad we had to put her on steroids. Miserable. I would say it wouldnt hurt to call and let them know. Then maybe revisit it at your appt.

That is a coincidence for sure! DH came home from drill last night (his first RSP for National Guard) and he was fine all weekend - came home and showered around the same time you were describing and BOOM! It was like this blotchy rash ALL over his hips and stomach. It was weird! I am SO sorry you broke out!!! He said he has never had a rash of any kind be so prickly itchy before! He was so miserable Its now almost not noticeable, but its still there a little bit. Did yours go away this morning? I hope your stays away!

Oh no!!! I would probably call, just to let them know it happened, and then talk about it more in depth at your appointment. I hope it's gone for you totally and doesn't come back!!

Yep, mine went away the next morning (So it happened Saturday night, woke up Sunday morning and it was all gone). No remnants of any bumps or redness. It was crazy - I seriously thought at first that a billion mosquitos had gotten in and had bit me, but my husband was fine and clearly no bugs in the house! We did paint the baby's bookshelf earlier that day, so I'm wondering if there was something from the paint or just being in the garage that caused the reaction. Either way, here's hoping it doesn't come back!!

We are thinking hubby's was heat rash. He was doing a lot of PT moves on his back, rolling in grass, it was hot, etc. Plus he isnt used to such strenuous workouts - so Im pretty sure thats what caused it.

I have never heard of paint causing hives - but we are pregnant and pregnancy does WEIRD things to our body!!
