Arg. I woke up to bumps on my belly this morning. Just a couple, but they hurt. I'm trying to find out if this is even normal. If anyone has had these please let me know. Thanks so much!!!

With my baby girl, I had bumps on my belly. They were really itchy. My doc told me that it was normal and not too worry, of course that was after he checked them out. I think they did not appear until I was atleast 3-4 month preggers. I used a milder soap and cocoa b___ter lotion. They eventually went away further in the pregnancy.

i got pimples on my belly (2 of them). They came last week- I believe, and are still red. Do your look like pimples? I have also started to break out inbetween my b___bs. UGH!

Yea mine looked like little white bumps, sometimes they were red.....I suppose from me scratching them all the time. At first I thought that it was the laundry detergent or something that I had been using. There are alot of pregnancy smptoms out there that are never even mentioned. For instance, the one about the uncontrollable leg movement.

Totally looks red and they hurt. They're fat and raised if that makes sense and it looks like something is in there, but it isn't. Whomever mentioned the jaw clenching thing totally put my mind at ease!!!

Hi, surgarpie It sounds like eczema. I had it bad with my last pregnancy. Try relax in the tub and put vaseline on it. I hope you feel better. Baby Dust

I don't have bumps on my belly but I did get a stye type thing on my eyelid and I have the hugest most painful pimple type bump on the back of my neck...

Thank you guys!! Yeah, KeeKee it is like one eczema bump! Perfect way to explain it!!!! I have it on the inside of my thighs. I had it on my neck, but that finally went away and I have it on my back (but that has lessened). Did you have eczema as a child or teen? They say that it comes back with pregnancy, but that never happened to me before. I appreciate all of your help, Mamas!*****

Yes, I had eczema as a child and now as a adult. My oldest son has it too. Vaseline is the only thing that worked for us. Stay away from perfumes and perfume soap. Oatmeal bath works also for some people.......... Enoy that bath!!!!(no bubble bath) Relax and dont scratch............. Baby Dust

KeeKee, you really put my mind at ease. I was wondering wth happened!! I'm going to do the Vaseline. Btw. how long did it take to find out you were preggers?

I been pregnant twice. The first pregnancy,I had spotting. I took a couple of tests at the clinic and they were (-). I went on with life. A few months later I felt movement and went to the dr. The urine test came out (-) but the blood test came out (+). A u/s was done and I was already 4 months along! Crazy Huh!!.......With the second pregnancy, I cant remember how far along I was. I just felt pregnant and took a hpt. I also had spotting/period like bleeding with my last pregnancy............ All my pregnancy I had preeclampsia and that might had something to do with it..........Now, I am doing the waiting game. I could be pregnant again with period like bleeding..... I am trying to not go insane!!! All of these pregnancy signs with bleeding make you think you are crazy..But women always know their bodies.... Keep your head up( I stole it from Tupac) It is nice talking to you.... Man I love this site!!!!

To Kee-Kee: Sorry if this is a stupid question, but what is Preclampsia?

 

SugarPie - February 28

Preach it, Sista!!! You're so on point with the truth. It is such a b___h not knowing. It really weighs down on you. Thanks for your insight!!!!! Much love*****

Hi, sorry I took so long. Company stopped by........... Here is the answer to your question about Preeclampsia. It is a disorder that only occurs in pregnancy and postpartum period and effect both the mother and child. Signs are high blood pressure, protein in the urine,swelling, sudden weight gain,headaches and changes in vision. It only occurs in 5 to 8 % of pregnancies...............I nicknamed it "HELL"....... I hope this answer your question............. Good luck!!!

When I was around 27 weeks pregnant with my son I woke up to red raised bumps all over my belly. I thought it was because I switched lotions but after a visit to the dermatologist I was diagnosed with PUPPS. I don't know exactly what it stands for but it was hell on earth. I was told it is more common later in pregnancy and the only real cure is delivery. I just happened to get it early and was given a special cream to put on the areas. By the way, it spread to my b___sts, b___t, legs, arms. Basically everywhere except my face! It was like poison ivy x 1000. What was unbearable was the itching. I tried hard not to scratch but it was impossible. I hope this isn't what you have. They say it is hormonal and I could get it with my next pregnancy.
