So I'm 11 + 5 and have been developing an allergic reaction over this past week, its still very mild but is definitely getting progressively worse. I've had allergic reactions before, although no one could ever find out what I'm allergic to, but they always flared up within the hour, never lasting this long or progressing this slow.
This is my second pregnancy, I have a daughter and had no problems when pregnant with her, so. I'm wondering if maybe I'm having a boy and am having a reaction to boy hormones? Because this started at the exact time the baby would start developing testosterone if it were a boy.
I have read a couple of freak news stories on this but just wondered if anyone knows anything about this or if its possible?
Itching all over, slight rash. Itching started on my knees, then couple days later my elbows, then wrists and ankles, now all over and seems to be getting itchier. This is how I've had allergic reactions before, but a lot quicker. And I definitely haven't eaten anything different.
Is it even possible that it could be something to do with the baby? I have no idea!
You need to go and see your midwife just to be sure. It may be nothing (pregnancy can be an itchy time!)- or it may be an allergy, or it could be something called intra-hepatic cholestatis of pregnancy.
