But I have a ton of sympathy for both of you. I went a week and I wanted to shoot someone.
IIRC, you wanted to shoot someone a week before
your EDD. You flooded the DDC with threads about how sick you were with being pg.
Do you have any more sympathy for me if I tell you I have PUPPP, and nothing stops the itching? I'm up way past my bedtime trying not to scratch.
It's on my belly, but it's the mildest there (though for the first week it was terrible on my belly), and now it's on my hands and arms (forearms are the worst), around my ankles, behind my knees, and on my upper thighs. Nothing seems to stop the itch, though I took 50 of benadryl an hour ago and it seems to have staunched it somewhat.
Oh, and I developed pitting edema in my feet, finally. I had it in my hands last night and had to take off my wedding ring. I was really hoping to get through this pregnancy without doing that.
I'm 42 and 3 as of right now (Saturday, Nov 17). DH was 18 days late, I'm beginning to think that this LO is planning on taking after his/her daddy from the very beginning!
