I went alone today for my 35 week checkup. I am not dialated and the baby is active so everything looks good there. But......for the past week or so I have been having some major problems with my stomach itching like crazy. At first I chalked it up to my skin stretching, but then I started to get a rash that was spreading all the way up my stomach. I knew that was not normal, so first on my list of questions for Dr. Travelstead today was "What in the world is this and how can we make it stop itching!" After a brief look and a sympathetic sigh she informed me that I have something called PUPPPs. Very little is known about PUPPPs and it is only supposed to get worse. My arms and legs have started itching, but i am hoping the rash won't spread too bad-mainly because with it being 100 degrees outside i can't exactly cover it up.
So, i guess this means i am going to be buying out the local CVS until i find something that works for longer than an hour-Wish me luck!
