So today we got to go back to the doctor. :) Blood pressure is normal, and Jill's heartbeat is going strong! Yay :) Next month I am having something called a sugar test. I never got around to asking what that actually means. I was just told it would take an hour and to not eat or drink for two hours before coming. I guess I'll find out next month. I meant to ask, but I was distracted, because I was busy asking him about my rash, tongue, and cold. I've had a cold for three weeks now. :( I know colds are not the end of the world, but it seems slightly unfair to have a cold and be pregnant, hehe. Life's not fair, eh?
Yes, I said rash up there. I have a rash. From my chin to my hips. I'm quite positive it's the same one I had in 2005. It started the same way with a herald patch that you kind of don't notice (I thought it was a large, slow forming zit on my neck haha silly me). Then more patches pop up and pretty soon you're covered. The only real difference I've seen so far is that I'm not as covered, but I do have more skin now with my baby belly, so that could be why. Also, when I had it twice in '05, it didn't itch, and it itches this time. That's slightly unfortunate, but not the worst thing that could happen.
My OB/GYN wants me to go to a dermatologist, but it is acting exactly like previous rashes I've had (except for the itch and I was told last time that it commonly itches, so I'm not worried about that), so it seems kind of pricey to go just to have him confirm what I already know about my own body. We'll see . . .
It's called pityriasis rosea, by the way.
