See OB today: Back to your obstetrician today. Hormonal changes in pregnancy may confound the diagnosis in rheumatologic diseases. The petechiae suggest that your platelet count may be low. This can be a very serious problem and the treatment needs of both you and the baby need to be addressed promptly.
