Pregnancy woes…this one has been full of them. Good thing I haven’t been plagued by crazy amounts of Braxton Hicks contractions so far.
Last week I started coughing – along with Mike and the kids. Then I started itching. I think that was the order they came in. But the itching was a way bigger deal until today. It just attacks me out of nowhere – awful itching all over my back, legs, arms, feet, hands, scalp…yuck. My first thought was that my liver wasn’t doing so good, but after a blood test this morning, it is clear that’s not why. So now I have no explanation for all this itching..just some Benadryl. What took me to get a bloodtest was actually a sudden inability to breathe properly. All last night I’d wake up and try to breathe deep and it would hurt so bad. Then this morning my respirations were way up. Mike took me to emergency but it’s just a virus. So it’s Benadryl and cough medicine. And tylenol if the chest pain is really bugging me. Oh, and 2,000 mg of vitamin C every day.
I am so ready to not be pregnant. Eight more weeks…okay, I’ll say ten just because that’s as long as it could be. Ten more weeks. Ugh.
