    Hi girls. I've not made it here just yet but just wanted to ask a question - I'm around 9DPO and have had strange rash on my "trunk"(!) since Saturday - it's on my stomach and back, very faint red blotches, not too much coverage, not itchy.....has anyone experienced similar as a symptom of pregnancy..? Thanks :D

    Not experienced anything like that but your hormones are going crazy right now so it could be that - I know your skin can change dramatically in pregnancy :)

    Hiya :wave: just come across this while reading my book, and if your red spots/blotches go white when you press them, then they are "spider angiomas" - tiny red spots, which can suddenly appear anywhere on your body. They are concentrations of blood vessels caused by the high levels of oestrogen in your body.

    Hope this helps :D
