Default Hives and nose bleeds

Last two days I've again had hives on my face! They've also started on my chest! I think I'm allergic to this pregnancy!

I've also had 4 major nose bleeds in the last week. Like flood gates opening up suddenly type of bleeding. I can't remember the last time I had a nose bleed was! Its odd as I don't do anything to cause them like sneezing. I'm afraid one will happen while I sleep and I'll wake up looking like I've been mauled!

Other then that I feel great

The hives kept coming back for 5 days in a row! Its so weird as I've never had them in my life until this pregnancy.

Laura, are you taking any new supplements? I started taking echinacea in my last PG and had a severe rash on my chest that itched so bad it was down into the flesh. I literally wanted to scratch my skin off. I quit taking it and after a few weeks it went away. I figured out that because the pill I was taking had aerial portions of the plant as well, and not just root, I was apprarently allergic to the pollen/flowers of the plant. Who would have known? I hope you can figure out what's causing it or at least have a miraculous recovery.

Nothing new. I was taking prescription prenatals from the dr. and had been while TTC. I was having the hives while taking those. I did switch to a organic whole foods prenatal. I was hoping the hives would go away with the switch, but they came back after a few weeks. Its just the oddest thing ever! They do go right down with Benedryl.
