Itching and Welts early in pregnancy? einahpetS +4 4 kids; Colorado 20822 posts

So I'm only 6weeks and a couple of days and this has never happened in previous pregnancies. I am getting welts very very easy on my skin, sometimes for no reason. I'm also itchy almost all the time.
First Dr appointment isn't until Friday, so I'm asking if anyone else has experienced this and if so does it go away?
I hope I don't have cooties lol.

I was thinking PUPPS too. Call your OB right away, there is topical relief you can get, and if your ob doesnt know make an appointment with a dermatoligist. Sorry you are going through this, a close friend dealt with PUPPS and it was so horrible looking.

I know how you feel, I'm itchy all the time I wake up in the middle of the night, and I itch all day, Ive tried lotions and everything. Then a rash which looks like broken blood vessels under the skin appears, when I went to the doctor 3 weeks ago she said it was something I was eating, well if def. isn't.

Thanks gals for all the advice. It sounds like it is not all that uncommon to be pretty itchy. Going to try some new lotions and maybe a benadryl tonight. We'll see what the doc says on Friday, I'm just hoping I get one of the itchy welts for my appointment!!!!

I am only 5 weeks pregnant with my second child and I am extremely itchy everywhere on my body. I am soo uncomfortable I can not sleep and all I want to do is itch. My skin is sooo sore and I am starting to get red bumps on my feet. My eyes, mouth and scalp even itch. I don't know what to do. I just called the doctor and because I do not have my first appointment until monday they won't even talk to me. I'm gonna scratch all my skin off by Monday. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. HELP!
