I had the weirdest thing happen to me last night. I was sleeping with my cat curled up right next to me ... like always, and I woke up with an itchy rash all over the places where she was touching. The side of my neck and my upper arms were all covered in raised bumps with redness. Has anyone else suddenly become allergic to their pets during pregnancy? I wasn't sure if I could take any benedryl or not, so I suffered through the night. I had to keep kicking the cat out of the bed. That was the strangest thing ever!
Carrieco, That totally happened to me last time! My cat was snuggling up to me and burying his head in my armpit and I woke up covered in a rash around my arms and neck. I took a shower and it went away.... it didnt happen again but DH wanted to kick the cat out of the bedroom anyway so the cat never slept on me anymore.
