red spots on my belly?????

maybe a week ago at the most I noticed a red spot on my stomach high up near my breasts and I figured I must have gotten bitten by a bug since it is spring and they are coming out. but just a few min. ago I got out of the tub and noticed a couple more and I started checking my whole body and there are at least a dozen but all on my stomach and a few under left breast. I am trying to take clear pics of it and also calling my midwife (their phone is busy at the moment) anyone have a clue what that is? if it is pregnancy related? I havent eaten anything new but I have had a few things that I dont eat regularly, such as an orange flavored pop and a lot of onions over the weekend. any ideas? If you wanna see a pic I can upload what I am taking. off to call the mw again.

oh, and they dont itch and dont feel raised.

I was going to say PUPPS which IS pregnancy related, but I believe that itches like crazy.

Maybe just a heat rash?

I don't know. It's throwing me off that they aren't itching you.

Yeah, that is why I was confused they don't itch at all. I looked up pupps in google and found a few pics. Of course google pics are always severe and the spots covered these womens whole bellies so hard to compare. my mw's nurse said to keep an eye on it for any changes, it might just be a reaction to something I used in the tub. Hopefully it doesnt get worse or start itching.

pupps...mine was never terribly itchy or that severe. I found that baking soda paste helped them clear up as did nettle tea (drinking it). It went away right after birth...seriously within 24 hours!

I had spots on my belly last pregnancy and my dr just kept an eye on them and said that your skin does weird stuff when you are pregnant so... maybe its nothing.
