    Hi,

    this would appear to be an outbreak of molluscum contagiosum, this is a strain of the HPV virus that causes genital warts, if you have the virus laying dormant within your body it can and will present itself in especially in pregnant women. it should clear in its own time withing 6-12 months. Do NOT pick or try popping the spots as this will spead the growth of spots. you just need to sit it out and should be fine. maybe see medical attention if you are due to give birth, the strain is highly contagious so a C section will most likely be an option for you to avoid skin contact with the newborn.
