I'm currently 17 weeks pregnant and have developed a rash

Patient : I'm currently 17 weeks pregnant and have developed a rash on my chest, shoulders, sides of my stomach, and tops of my legs. It itches like crazy, but I have no other symptoms - no fever, nausea, etc. The rash appears as small, light pink bumps barely noticeable until looking very closely or running hand across the skin. It seems to worsen in a warm shower, turning into hives. Any idea what this may be and if I should be concerned? Also, best ways to clear it up, preferably without prescription meds?
Symptoms:  Rash, itchiness
