In brief: Possibly
During pregnancy many skin changes occur. In the 3rd trimester some women experience a rash called puppp (an anocryonym) that can be widespread but is not serious.
Best to go to dermatologist as other conditions which do require attention can also occur during pregnancy and a dermatologist will be able to better determine what's causing rash and how to treat.
