The last couple days have been the worst pregnancy days ever! I have broken out in hives all over my body including the bottoms of my feet and palms of my hands. Uncontrollable itching. Benadryl seems to relieve the hives plus the itching. I have never had this problem without knowing the solution. I do not want to keep taking Benadryl. I haven’t changed any food or laundry detergent. I am not usually sensitive to perfumes or dyes, however, I stopped putting on any smelly good stuff. My appetite has completely gone because I am scared of breaking out and nothing tastes good. Yesterday, after I broke out in the morning I decided to make myself eggs and sausage and not 5 minutes later I got in my car to go to work and I began coughing. I coughed so hard that I actually projectile vomited all over my driveway. I don’t know what is happening to my body, but I don’t like it.
I am pretty stubborn and I did not call the doctor yesterday, but today I called and am waiting on what I can or should do about the itching and hives. It’s weird because I am not itching them today and watching my body create hives is fascinating. I had no hives on the bottom of my legs, but as I am writing this blog I have looked down and there are white spots that are now forming on the lower part of my leg and red blotches are forming inside of the white spots. My left ear has started getting welts on it and it looks like it is going to look like the ear from Hitch when he has an allergic reaction to shell fish. I am hoping the doctor calls back soon. That’s the dramatic side of what is happening with my body at 34 weeks!
Today, I am looking forward to my friend coming to town and we are going grocery shopping to make 28 freezer meals for post baby. The grocery list is huge, but at least I get to do this with a friend. My biggest fear is what if we spend all this money and the food is gross. I guess a sure fire way to lose weight. Ha.
As I am typing this the bottom of my hands are beginning to break out in hives so I need to wrap this baby up otherwise I don’t know what’s going to happen.
Going to the doctor now. Hopefully they can figure out what is happening!
