My Fiance is a doctor. He thinks (realistically he should really see you  and take a look at your skin to come to a real solid diagnosis), so this is really a hunch. He thinks what you could have pruritic folliculitis of pregnancy. You are a little early in the pregnancy to have this though.

There’s not much you can do, it goes away 2 3 weeks after pregnancy delivery.

If you want to a post a picture of the bumps or can you pm maybe can provide more detail.

I’ve had a couple appear on my stomach – but had put it down to the heat.  Have you noticed patches of dry skin as well? (I’m 10 weeks and 5 days).

@funkymunky85:  its called Keratosis pilaris, it is little lumps or bumps sometimes filled with white pus.  You can reduce it by exfoliating etc, I also did oil swilling (not sure if you can do when pregnant so check), and all of mine disappeared.

@funkymunky85:  I have had it before on upper arms and a few between my breasts, if thats what you mean by chest.
