So, I've had a fairly easy pregnancy. I mean, I passed all my tests with FLYING COLORS. Minimal morning sickness in the beginning, plenty of energy at the end....2 weeks left, easy peasy right?

Shit no. Never.

Google Image PUPPP and tell me that this is real.
~Tell me I broke out with this a week ago today only in my minor belly stretchmarks.
~Tell me the Benadryl cream my dr. referred to me will take care of it, that I just need to "stay outta the heat".
~Tell me that it will spread to everywhere except my face and feet within a week.
**Over the holiday weekend. When I can't reach my Dr., but only the exchange who tells me to take oral Benadryl & Zyrtec & hydrocortizone cream.
~~~~Great, that's what I want. I want to make this far, to have to med-up, b/c I haven't slept in 3 days, and am itching my skin off.
~Tell me that the Grandpas Pine Tar Soap I just ordered online will do the trick, (per the community).

Tell me all of this and I will tearfully say Eff You. This hurts, it's ugly and I'm in pain. Nothing helps. Nothing. Cold showers relieve me instantly from all the itching I feel, but within 10 mins I want to cry again.

I feel like a crack-head...itch itch itch. I pray this doesn't spread to my face.

They say 70% of the ONE PERCENT of woman that get this in their 3rd trimester have boys. That's about the only fun thing related to this. I can daydream about a little boy.

Do I want to do this whole thing again to shoot for a little girl one day? Will this happen in all my future pregnancys? Lord knows I'm hard-headed enough to try though. ;)

I've thought of anything and everything that could possibly caused this...the only thing I've changed recently is that I've quit eating White bread and switched to Wheat. So far I've researched no relation. :(

Say a little prayer for me. I'm not sure I can handle this much longer. (and it's supposed to last 6 weeks)~~even after delivery!!!!

Goody Goody Gum Drops!!!


  1. Oh, Kelli. I am so sorry! If it makes you feel any better at all, the last two weeks (three actually since I went a week over) were terrible for me. I didn't have an itchy rash, but it was terrible anyway. I think the end is terrible for everyone, but regardless this is unfair and I'm so sorry it happened to you! You should try a cool oatmeal bath, those do wonders for Nate when he has poison ivy.
    I hope you feel better soon! And even if it lasts until after he (hee hee) gets here, you will have a wonderful baby (boy) to cuddle with.

  2. Holy Crap this sucks. I need to come over and see your itchy belly. I will itch it for you:)

  3. Thank You's just so disheartening. I had a Dr. Appt today to check my activity downtown...(of course, there is none yet)...and my Dr. said it isn't PUPPP, that it is just hives. Some of the pics on google image look JUST like what I look like...but I'm not a dr....sooooo, she prescribed me something (not a steroid) to help me sleep at night. This means it won't last 6 weeks!! (hopefully!!!) Anna~~a girl at work brought me in Aveeno oatmeal bathe stuff...I'm doing it tonight! Nikki~~I'm going to sleep a bunch tonight and we have to pick up our wedding album from the photog...but we will meet, I can't wati to show this off!! HAHA.
