Hives and pregnancy: Hives can occur during pregnancy however, there is typically no direct cause and effect. One disease that is caused by pregnancy and is often mis-diagnosed is pupps (pruritic urticarial plaques and papules of pregnancy) unlike typical hives, pupps does not last less that 24hrs at a single site.
