Did anyone hear if 2bluefish had her baby yet?
I had a NST this afternoon, and while the baby passed (two accelerations in 20 minutes) it was a near thing. Baby is sleepy and didn't want to move around much.
I had a consult with one of the CNMs afterwards to talk about my rash. She said it doesn't look like classic PUPPP, which is true. Classic PUPPP tends to stay around the abdomen and close to the trunk, where my rash is worse at the ends of my limbs, around my forearms and lower legs. However, barring any other explaination, we're going with PUPPP, and assuming that it's just my body's weird reaction to still being pregnant at almost 43 weeks. She gave me a prescription for Vistaril, which is an anti-itch medication that will hopefully make me drowsy as all get out. I just took one, and I can take up to four, but she said that if one doesn't do it, I should pair it with a Benadryl and the combination should both take care of my itch and knock me the f*** out.
My MW was with me, and we decided that after I get some good sleep, we're going to try the breast pump and some blue and black cohosh to see if that gets me going. If that doesn't work, and it's really the end of the bag of homebirth tricks, I'm going to go in and get some pit. I am at the end of my rope, and 43 weeks is a little much for this first-time mama.
However, I've had bloody show every time I've gone to the bathroom. sometimes it's in the toilet as well as on the paper. If this keeps up, then who knows? I might wake up in labor.
Thank you all for all your support and kind words. It means a lot and is instrumental in helping me keep going when I'm so ready to give up.
