I noticed the skin on my breasts is really blotchy. Its always been pale but there are pinkish red blotches on them. They arent itchy but it looks like a rash almost. Is this strange or just a pg thing...

Probably just pregnancy. This pregnancy has been the pregnancy of bad skin for me. I'm not even going to go into it, it's that bad.

I am very pale (I consider myself 'translucent' at times) and my breasts were blotchy and the veins very visible until after I stopped breastfeeding.

Sounds like pregnancy to me. My skin, head to toe, has been horrible this pg. Blotches, breakouts, and dryness!!!

I have it all over my belly sometimes and I think it's just hormones.

That sounds an awful lot like a rash I get in association to a yeasty outbreak. Which means I have it my entire pregnancy!! My mw said she sees it all the time and reccomended using a sugar scrub on it then dabbing the spots with peroxide. but, frankly, it's everywhere and I have had it before (non-pregnant) and continuosly when preggo with ds and it doesn't bother me. Sometimes using dandruff shampoo as a body wash helps curb it a bit (or gets rid of it when I'm not preggo- that was my doc's rec. when I was a teenager... cheap & easy!).
