Yes same! Idk what they are though :\ I always got them from heat, like after a shower or walking, or if I got a heat rash.

Mine broke out really bad in the begining of pregnancy when I was like 8-12 weeks, mine stopped tho at 16 weeks and has been gone since hopefully yours will go away soon too

Mines isn't that bad anymore, but when I was like between 10-15 they were really red & itchy!! This is my 2nd pregnancy & this happens the first time too.

I'm 27 weeks and I usually have clear skin, but most of my pregnancy I have had acne
on my face and a little on my upper back.

I have extremely bad eczema that I finally manage to have under control until I got pregnant. I have about 4-6wks to go depending on my baby (preterm labor ) and i cant wait because I can get my skin under control. It doesn't help living in NYS and I can't let my skin breathe

Yes my first pregnancy I didn't break out but this one it has been horrible I get bumps everywhere now on my neck shoulders and along side of my chin I went to the dermatologist but ofcourse since I'm pregnant she couldn't give me anything or do anything about it until I give birth so you kind of just have to deal with it until you give birth and then you should go see the dermatologist if it's bothering you still
