A Little Info From the WWW June 12, 2008

Filed under: Mom and Dad — leighnut @ 1:07 pm

I’ve learned a little something from the internets about hives and postpartum people. Apparently, there are a ton of people out there who get hives randomly after they have babies. It’s related to hormone changes. (It seems that everything can be blamed on stupid hormones!) Some people have said that they were still getting them in month four and five. I don’t really want to have hives for three more months, so I’m hoping that this is short lived. Now it’s basically just my hands that itch like crazy. I will occasionally get a patch of bumps somewhere on my arms, but they don’t itch. It’s all very strange.

    How special!! I hope it clears up soon. The itching must be miserable in the heat.

    That stinks. Does the benadryl help at all? I suppose it just makes you more sleepy! Maybe you should give it to Sam…hee hee…teasing. šŸ™‚

    The heat doesn’t make it any better, that’s for sure. And the Benadryl does help, but I don’t like to take it unless I’m miserable, because Sam does get it when he eats. He doesn’t seem to be too affected by it, though, which makes me feel better.

    I still have a rash where my hospital bands were, if that makes you feel any better. It doesn’t, does it. … Hm. Well, I hope you feel better soon!

    That’s not fun! I hope it goes away soon…
