They're Back

Early in my pregnancy with Ethan, I got a nasty case of the hives. Last time it started with my eyelids and then spread to a whole-body break out. I did not have this problem while pregnant with Logan and I was so glad to have dodged that bullet. But, on Saturday morning I noticed that my eyelids were a little itchy and red...and I just knew what it was and what could be in store for me. So, I started taking antihistamines immediately. Unfortunately, by Sunday, my eyelids had completely swelled up. I looked freaky and they stayed swollen through last night. They are much better today. And as for the rest of my body, I think the antihistamines are holding the hives in check. I have spots here and there (mostly on my feet, hands, knees, and elbows) but it is nothing like the misery I was in last time. I am hoping things stay that way.

Hormones can do such crazy things! I hope the antihistamines keep working and that you recover quickly.

I am so sorry! I totally feel for you! Was there a sign up for bringing you meals?
