Hives during pregnancy?

Has anyone had anything like hives during pregnancy?  A few weeks ago (maybe even months at this point), I had one rash thing on my abdomen, but not near any stretch marks or my bra line. I told DH, at the time, that it almost reminded me of hives, when I'd gotten them before. But it was only one.  Since then, however, I've gotten more.  I bet I have close to 10 of them now and they are all on my torso (almost in the same area around my body, but on both sides of it)

i broke out in itchy hives a few times around the 20 week mark or so .. it was hot outside and it was also on my belly that it happened.. i felt the burning and the itching and looked down and was in shock. . the biggest thing for me was just not to overheat.. which is what seemed to cause it i think! :)

I have a rash  right now as well, but only on my chest...weird.  They are awful looking though and driving me crazy.  I have been taking warm baths in epsom salts and that seems to help a bit....also, calamine lotion seems to help.  Chalk it up to those hormones I guess...

I have small rashes on my stomach as well.  I just received a new one since wearing a band-aid over my navel.  The dr. told me to try cortisone, a low dosage.  The itching is driving me bananas.
