As I sit here trying very hard to ignore my itchy PUPPPS rash I figure the best way to stop from scratching is to keep my fingers busy by typing. It’s fraking typical that I would develop PUPPS something that only 1 in 200 pregnant women develop a bit like my extreme reaction to the sugar test. Talking about the sugar test that was quite the turning point in my pregnancy. After fainting I got a little jumpy about what would happen if I fainted (or worse) when I was out and about, and I wasn’t the only one concerned as Alex suggested that I should have an ‘In Case of Emergency’ note on me.

Are we there yet?
No? So, please pop me in a chemically induced comma* for the last 29 days…
Okay folks it’s the final leg. 29 days till my c-section, and I feel like I need a little push** to get me to the finish line as my body is feeling very worn down by this pregnancy. It probably doesn’t help that we’re going through an Indian summer at the moment when what I really need is cool fall temps to make everything more bearable. My feet and fingers are now swollen. My trusty Croc sandals that have got me through the summer are now on the tight side. I might need to break out my flip-flops from my hospital go bag. When it starts to get cooler (any day now please) I can wear my furry Crocs as they are super wide and comfy. I’m trying to spend as much time as possible off my feet and with my legs up the wall, or when I do it in the bedroom I have my legs up the crib.
