I would suspect that any skin problems she is having are due to the pregnancy. I am having a girl in a few weeks and we know that she cannot be affected, only a carrier. I always get itchy when I am pregnant. My doctor told me it has to do with the hormones my body is producing.

Hope that helps

There's a weird syndrome called PUPPP that affects some women in late pregnancy. It is thought to be caused by the overload of hormones, and the only thing that cures it is childbirth. It isn't related to ichthyosis, though.
Ichthyosis-en-Confetti Type 2
Husband, Nathan - 10, Elliot - 7, Oliver - 4, all affected.
I also have an unaffected daughter, age 8.
