I noticed that when I was pregnant with my son, I got tiny patches of eczema on my upper arms near my armpits.  I also noticed with that pregnancy and my current one that the skin around my fingers became extremely dry and cracked.  I don't know if the dry skin was/is pregnancy related, but I have never had eczema before, or since, my first pregnancy.
