Mgt: Your symptoms are consistent with an allergic reaction. An over the counter antihistamine may be taken, but if this does not control the symptoms, please let your OB specialist know. Did you try a new soap or face lotion?

Go to ER: Hives and swelling around the eyelids is not a normal finding, and spells trouble if it involves having orbital or eyelid cellulitis. Especially if you're pregnant, I would take no chances, and go to the ER and have it evaluated immediately, and get it treated.
