Pregnancy Plague

So I started getting these little red bumbs on my skin the other day. I thought it was poison ivy actually. I know it is snowing out, but I could have got it from the animals....... I know I'm stretching. Anyways, it kept popping up in different areas and it was really itchy. So I thought well, I am pregnant I better go check it out. I'm allowed one of those, right. I have made it 35 weeks with out freaking out. For me that is an accomplishment. So anyway I ended up going to the doctor today. I have Pruritic Urticarial Papules and Plaques of Pregnancy or PUPPP for short. Apparently it only effects 1 % of pregnant woman. Yippee for me! It is a terribly itchy rash that starts in your stretch marks. (not that I'm saying I have any....... :) It also affects those having more then one baby or first time pregnancies. However I only have 5 weeks left at the most so I can grin and bear it right? I'm supposed to only take a shower every other day and use a special lotion 3 times a day. I have to take a shower every day or I don't feel human! I'm in big trouble! Oh well, its still worth it. It could be worse. That is what I keep telling myself. It seems to work until I start itching again. I did read on line that there is a soap that is supposed to help. It is at health food stores. I am going there tomorrow.

In other news, BAB has decided that sleep is no longer a necessity again. She was extremely tired at 3 after only taking a 40 minute nap earlier. So I put her to bed and she is still up there an hour and half later playing. I better go get her though. She has been tiring herself out all day with no nap and then when she does this she fall alseep at 5 and sleep till morning. Which them she doesn't get her nebulizer, medicine, or supper. So then she is miserable and very hungry is the morning! Which makes us all miserable!
